Ex-city manager wanted ‘tactical map’ of Muslim residents
The former city manager from Washington state was worried about terrorism.
According to findings by an independent investigator, which were published by the Seattle Times, James “Donny” Payne, then the interim manager of the City of SeaTac, Washington, also proposed an “Americanization” program to help immigrants assimilate into the town of 28,000, where the majority of residents are non-white. He also floated ending a ban on city employees bringing guns to work.
Payne resigned on April 6, two days after the independent investigator submitted a summary of the findings to the SeaTac City Council.
