Seattle Mayor Paul Schell has now vetoed the new AADO [all ages dance ordinance] which would have finally replaced Seattle's infamous Teen Dance Ordinance, and even wants it rewritten to be more stifling than the current TDO, which has historically had the effect of banning all ages music in Seattle. The Seattle City Council now needs six or more votes to override the veto. Please take a few minutes to read the following Stranger and Seattle Times articles, then email, write, or fax Paul Schell, and especially the members of the Seattle City Council, and let them know that it is important to you that the city council members vote to override this veto: Mayor Paul Schell:
