  1. For the other side of the story please read this piece I wrote. I am an Olympia resident for 23 years. The majority of Olympia is not happy with this decision. We noted that Mayor Selby felt the political winds shift and voted to continue with the eviction. This is absolutely not an acceptable place to camp, no matter what your views on camping are. Damage to the bridge from fires or propane explosions would potentially cost millions of dollars and would be a great hardship to the city. I feel your story neglected to voice the opposition opinion. https://medium.com/@CandaceMercer/the-real-crisis-in-olympia-is-not-homelessness-ad68199ab708?source=friends_link&sk=bf65ec9ab222d2b93e002b72a230e302
