SEATTLE (AP) - Former Seattle City Councilman Peter Steinbrueck (STYN’-brek) who supported the election of Seattle Mayor Ed Murray won a $98,000 no-bid consulting contract with the city.

Murray brushed aside any suggestion the contract might be political payback and told The Seattle Times (https://bit.ly/TdGGQP) Steinbrueck was qualified to help him revise city growth plans and help improve how departments work together.

Steinbrueck is an architect who spent 10 years on the council before leaving in 2007 and now works as an urban planning consultant.
