STRA Episode 10: How do I Protect my Investment if STR Regulations Change? [00:00:00] [00:00:05] Hey guys. Welcome back to the podcast. [00:00:07] We are John and Wendy Williams, the short term rental authority, your authority for all things, short term rental related to help make you the best operator ever. And we have a question from Todd Fleming, from Ohio, and his question is. how do you protect your asset if regulations, regulations change? [00:00:35] And I thought that was a really great question in that we should address it on the podcast. So we get this question a lot, you know, are Airbnb's legal? Can I do Airbnb? What are the Airbnb regulations? That kind of thing. So I thought that we could talk about that. And what I'd like to talk about first is, so here's what we're gonna talk about today. [00:00:57] We're gonna talk about a mindset shift that a lot of people. Don't realize that they need to make about regulations. Then we're going to talk about the different types of regulations that there are. And then we will address the, how do you protect your asset if regulations change aspect? Right. I think his was more of a, Hey, if I go invest in some area or so. [00:01:27] what do I do? If it, all of a sudden they change it, like it's allowed now, and then they change it. How do I protect my investment? Right. Which is a valid question. Sure. Right. But we'll talk about that last. Okay. Yeah. So, so let's talk about first this mindset shift that people need to make. Regarding regulations and, and you were talking about it earlier and it was really good. [00:01:55] So regulations don't tell you [00:02:00] what you can't do. They tell you how you can do it oftentimes. Yeah, so I, I would just say that, that it is a way to go look at the regulations is. not what it's telling me. I can't do, but it's it often is telling you how you can do it. Right, right. That there's a difference in, and I think that's why you called it a mindset shift. [00:02:22] It is because it's a mindset shift. You, you kind of have to go into it with that perspective perspective. And you know, one of the things we always say is make sure you're actually reading the ordinance itself, you know, go find the actual ordinance because. Here's the thing, I think this question comes from a place of fear. [00:02:42] It comes from a place of misunderstanding a lot, obviously. Yeah. And it comes from Facebook groups that you're on and things like this, like, oh my God, they're, they're banning short term rentals. What we, or they're banning Airbnb or whatever. Right, right. And, and what are we gonna do about it, or I'm afraid that, Hey, they're gonna do that where I am. [00:03:02] Or, you know, I would never go, you hear things like this, like, well, you can't, you know, you can't do it in, in Los Angeles because it's so honors and I'm afraid, you know, we have a lot of students and coaching clients that are in the California market and they're constantly worried about. Hey, are they going to bring that here? [00:03:23] Gonna bring that here? Cause there's a lot of markets where right. It is regulated Los Angeles being won a lot of Southern Californias that way. You don't see it as much in your vacation type destination. So I was thinking like you know, big Bayer national park and, and stuff like that. Those those markets tend to, or like in, on our. [00:03:44] Side of the country, you know, your Myrtle beaches or your, you know, places like that, that are vacation destinations. Don't typically have this problem because it's just, it's been that way all along. Right. And the, the economy depends on it. Sure. So we're mostly talking [00:04:00] about, you know, your Metro areas, your cities, your, the big cities like places we operate C. [00:04:05] You know, you're at your, Atlanta's your, you know, your cities is really where this in towns that aren't traditional destinations for leisure travel, right. That that's usually where these come in. so, and, and you talked about it just a second ago, is the, the ordinances. So let's talk about the different types of ordinances or regulations. [00:04:36] So we've got the city or the town ordinances, which you should definitely research first, before you get started to see what you can do. Right. It's not talking about. What you can't do look at it as, okay. How can I operate within the confines of the law? What are they telling me that I can do? Mm-hmm and, and so you've got the city ordinances, and then within that, if you have an HOA, you've got the HOA CCNRs that you'll need to look at. [00:05:16] And then within that, Yeah, you've got the, the specific landlord regulations too. So some landlords are, are, are more minimal than others. Yes. Yeah. So that's a good way to put it. Yeah. Right. So those three things that are, are the, the three types of regulations or ordinances that you need to look at. And you can have statewide ordinances too. [00:05:41] That's true. Yeah. That's coming to play here in North Carolina, actually. Uhhuh . Yeah, that's true here recently. That's true. Mm-hmm mm-hmm so, so looking at that and you can do a simple Google search and, and just say short term rental regulations, Charlotte, North [00:06:00] Carolina, or short term rental ordinance. [00:06:03] Tampa, Florida, mm-hmm, , you know, just short term rental ordinance or short term rental regulation, and then your city or town and your state. And that will bring up a lot of results. But here's the specific thing that I think it's important to look for is something.gov. Would be the most valid search result that you are looking for because it is government [00:06:37] Yeah. Well, what you're really saying is don't read news articles. Don't read news. Yes. Avoid news articles. Yes. Cause that's what you're gonna get mostly on a Google search. Right? Exactly. And the news article very rarely is informative. In other words, they're well, it's. truth. Well, it is true. It's not that it's a fake news article. [00:06:59] No, the problem is that they are looking at it from, it's not true ordinance. Well, they're, it's not the ordinance itself. Right. They're looking at it from the perspective of what can't you do. Yes, exactly. Right. And, and keep in mind that they think Airbnb is a verb. Right, right, right. There's, there's a lot of, you know, we're in the industry and to us, we know that. [00:07:20] Airbnb is just a marketplace there's and short term rentals has been going on for hundreds of years. You know, it didn't get invented when Airbnb right came. Right. So it's, it's been going on forever. In fact, it used to be encouraged. Yes. Especially when you buy, were buying a house. Yeah. Like in the 18 hundreds, that was a thing. [00:07:40] Yep. That's right. You know, it was actually easier to get a mortgage if you had a short term rental on your property. Right. Cause it was, it was the income, extra income. Right, exactly. And that's still true actually to a certain degree, but the, the point is that there, the, a lot of the times the regulations and the hype. [00:07:58] Around it [00:08:00] comes from a non-industry perspective. Meaning that's it's. People don't really, I hate to say it this way, but they don't know what they're talking about. They really don't. They're well, they're not in the space. They're not in the space. They're not operating this space. It would be kind of like me trying to tell you how to chop up a, you know, be a butcher or something. [00:08:18] I'm not a butcher. I don't know anything about it. Other than it's meat, any, I think you chop it up with the Cleaver. right. And there's blood involved and I don't wanna be involved in that. all. Right. Sounds horrible to me, but I like stay right. thank you, butchers. Yeah, but the, you know, it's, it's it's so it's, it's an it's ignorance is the word, but it's not meant to be negative necessarily. [00:08:41] It's just, it's just, it just is what it is a non-educated point of view. Yeah. Right. And so, so I, I, can I bring my examples out? Yeah. Oh yeah. Go ahead. Okay. when you search for that. And I, and I picked the city of Atlanta because they recently passed some short number ordinances and it's been kind of a buzz. [00:08:59] We have people in Atlanta too that, that do this and operate. And it's been kind of a buzz because, well, when you Google search it, you're gonna find, well, here's the news article for you. And the, the big headline is city of Atlanta cracking down on Airbnb short term rentals. About 4,000 short term rentals could no longer be allowed to operate in Atlanta because of a new ordinance cracking down on who's able to rent out their home. [00:09:27] Right. Right. And it goes on to tell you that basically you can only have two of them. You have, one of them has to be your primary residence, which means you have to live there. And now there's this whole well now I can only have two of a max, how am I gonna scale that and make that a business? and well, I don't even live in Atlanta, so now I guess I'm out of business. [00:09:50] Right, right. Like, and, and the news, that's what the news article says basically. Right. And then they interviewed some people that were short term rental operators in there, [00:10:00] like this lady who has a duplex and her primary residence, but she can only use one half of the duplex. and her primary resident. [00:10:09] Right. And, and you have to get a license and it's, it's not honors. Really. It's 150 bucks, I think, for the permit. Oh, that's not too bad. And, and that's fine. But, but that's what it is. That's, that's the type of information you're going to get from a news article. Okay. So what I did was I, I took the news article and I said, okay, well, let's go read the ordinance. [00:10:31] So, so I pulled up the actual ordinance. That's what you really need to do because this is the actual rules. Right? Right. So, and what it basically comes down to when you're reading an ordinance, you'll find that they start out with a lot of wear as is. You know, it's lawyers write these things, right? [00:10:47] So you get this, whereas, you know, thousands of Atlanta residents rent their homes on a short term basis. Whereas, whereas, whereas whereas, okay, fine. Skip the whereas is and get down to, and what you're really looking for. Right up front. The definition is what's the definition. Yeah. What, what is a short term rental appear? [00:11:06] How do they define a short term rental, correct? Yes. Like what is it? What is, first of all, we need to know what we're regulating, right? and it says in here it's got the intent ah, definitions, short term rental means an accommodation we're in exchange for compensation. Yeah, we do wanna get paid. A residential dwelling unit. [00:11:30] So we'd need to define that as well. Right. But for now, we'll just assume we know what that is. A residential dwelling unit okay. Is provided for lodging for a period of time, not to exceed 30 consecutive days, not to exceed 30 consecutive days. 30 consecutive days. Yeah. So they they're talking Yoda speak, cuz they're kind of saying it backwards, but what they're really saying is if you. [00:11:55] Do it for less than 30, if you do it less for, if you, if you rent out a [00:12:00] space, I'm just gonna use that word for less than 30 consecutive days, then, then you're not considered a short term rental. No, it's the other way around then you are considered a short term rental. Yeah, they just said it backwards. [00:12:10] Gotcha. So you said it the way that makes sense to most people, right? If you rent it for less than 30 days, it's a short term rental. If you rent it for 30 days or more, then it's not anymore. Which means the rest of this doesn't apply to you. Right? Right. So if you do an extended stay model, then you don't fall under the shortterm rental guidelines. [00:12:32] Right. Extended your mid consider. I think people are starting to call those midterm stays now midterm stays. Yeah. But yeah, if you, if so long as you have 'em in there for 30 days or more, the rest of this doesn't apply to you, which means this news article is wrong because. It didn't say anything about whether it was on Airbnb or not, or whether it was on VRBO or not, or where I advertised. [00:12:59] It just said, how long did they stay? Right. And that's the definition. So what it's telling me is I can have an Airbnb, an Airbnb. I can have an Airbnb in the city of Atlanta so long as people stay for 30 days or. So what happens if I want to rent it, rent it out less than 30 days? Well, in that case, it's gonna tell me how I can do that. [00:13:27] Okay. Tell me how I can do that. So the way I do that is I need to obtain a license. Okay. It does say that I can be a renter and obtain a license. Okay. It says that I must have a primary reside. In the city of Atlanta. Okay. And I can home share that one. So I can, it has to be your primary residence. [00:13:47] So you have to live there. So I guess I could rent out a room in that home. Okay. And then I can have a second one. Okay. That is totally just for short term rentals. Okay. So, and it says here that you can't [00:14:00] have more than one primary resident. So basically it's saying me, John can have one primary reside. [00:14:07] and an additional short-term rental. Okay. And then I have to get a license. I have to pay $150 for it. And I have to, there's some things I have to do, like have a way for people to contact me 24 hours a day. Okay. Right. Sounds like a phone number or a messaging. Yeah, so, but there, it has to be posted in the unit. [00:14:31] So the name and contact information of the registered agent is what they're calling it. Ah. Gotcha. And it has to be posted in the unit. I'm sorry, the short term rental agent. So the agent is a person or organization, so it can be an LLC. Okay. Designated by the owner or the long term tenant of a short-term rental on the short term rental license application. [00:14:50] Gotcha. Such a person. Shall be available for and responsive to contact at all times. So it can be my team. Okay. It can be queen city suites. That's the agent. Got it. And that's it. That's pretty much it that's it. Yep. Yeah. There's no other requirements in here that I saw. I didn't yeah. You know? Okay. I may have missed something. [00:15:10] Somebody's gonna say no, but it's this other thing too. Yeah, basically. You have, you have to tell how many parking spaces you have and they can't violate the Nora's ordinance. And well, we don't wanna do that anyway. That's that's pretty much it that's it. You have to have written rules posted in the short term rental that include Them acknowledging that they won't exceed, violate the laws as opposed to noise. [00:15:33] Acknowledgment of the maximum occupancy is limited to two adults per bedroom. So that is an additional requirement. Okay. Two adults per bedroom. Yeah. So if we had our two bedrooms there, we couldn't put a sleeper. So in right. And say we host six, we could only host four. So they've limited it occupancy two per bedroom. [00:15:49] You have to notify everyone around it. So if this is a house or an apartment, you have to notify all the neighbors for a certified mail that you've applied for the license. Oh, okay. [00:16:00] Interesting. And that's pretty much it just little stuff like that. So, so you can, you can operate in, in the city of Atlanta and. [00:16:09] Technically, if I were going to operate there, I would simply go to 30 days or more stays. Yeah. Then you're not gonna and avoid the rest of this altogether. Right. Probably. And I'm, and I might, well, I don't live in Atlanta, so, but if I lived in Atlanta, I might I'm apply for a license and then have one that's short term. [00:16:27] Like I could do that. So it hasn't told me I can't do it. Right. It's just told me how I can. Right. And, and that's the way I looked at it. So if you're in the city of Atlanta, Simply go 30 day more stays and you'll be fine. I would say that that's probably the case in the majority of metropolitan cities, the majority. [00:16:47] Yeah. There's a few places that I've seen exceptions to that yeah. Where they really make it difficult. Yeah. But it usually comes down to length of stay length stay. Yeah. And the reason for that is there's a lot of people that rent month to month mm-hmm well, they can't do away with that. And they're trying not to. [00:17:05] you know, make it illegal to rent month to month, right. And at the same time control. So it comes down to length of stay. It very rarely comes down to where your customer comes from. Mm-hmm . Now I will say there are some exceptions to that. Baltimore is one of those. Oh yeah. Baltimore has written theirs in such a way that it does matter where they come from. [00:17:26] I feel like it's gonna be challenged if somebody challenges it, but they're basically theirs is 120. Interesting. If you use an online travel way for them to pay, like they made it very vague. It didn't say Airbnb. Oh really? Yeah. So there's some, it's all how they pay online. Yes. It's about, that's interesting. [00:17:47] Yeah, they were very, I, I think they were trying to be, what they're really trying to say is if you come through everything B you have to stay for 120 days or more. Gotcha. Okay. With that. And, and they're trying to get around the problem [00:18:00] of. Month to month, but you know, there's an argument to be made that well, we pay our. [00:18:05] Rent online. Right, right. For the, for lots of people do for sure. So how do they, I don't know. I think that could be challenged and it'd be difficult to, to get around it. But that's interesting for now. That's the way it's actually written. Huh? Yeahinteresting it's one of the few places it's actually that way, most places it's, it comes down to length to stay. [00:18:25] And it's something that's doable, right? 28, 30, 31 days. Right? Sure. And so there, because there are people who. Need to need a place to stay 30 16 all the time, 90 days. So in fact, a lot of our reservations are just that. Yeah, I know. So, so don't be discouraged by, yeah. By that. If you, if the, if your ordinance says, well, you know, you, you, you have to do 30 day stays are more the, just know that that's doable. [00:18:56] I mean, there. Yeah, we should probably do a whole podcast on that, that need that, that type of stay. So, and, and we get 'em all the time. Yeah. And I know people in those markets and that's what they focus do very well. They do Seattle. We've got some, some Seattle's one of those some coaching clients in Seattle that do places very near that way. [00:19:17] Denver mm-hmm they do very well in Denver. So places like that in Philadelphia, Indianapolis. Yeah. I don't think Indianapolis actually has a restriction, but there just know that there are lots of people who need that type of accommodation. So, so we've covered the, the city or town ordinance. [00:19:40] Let's talk a little bit about if you're in an HOA and your HOA has. They're called what you need to look for. If you're, if you're in an HOA, what you need to look for are the CCNRs. And that stands for covenant. Yeah. You just set yourself [00:20:00] up, not to know what that means. Restrictions you're the one that's licensed yours. [00:20:05] No, right. I really should know. It's been a hot minute since I've. Yeah, but basically it's the rules, but it, that those are the rules that, that are going to. Cover that type of, of information, not just the bylaws. I think the bylaws are just, the bylaws are something else. It's how though HOA is organized, right? [00:20:24] Like it's gonna have a president and it's gonna have a secretary, right. That's not what, it's not the rules. It's not the rules, the CCNRs, covenant, something and restrictions that I can't remember what it is, but feel free to let me know if you know what it is. Right. let me just cut that out. Cause right. [00:20:41] Get off the fat jokes. F, but we actually do have some short term rentals in an that have an HOA and well, first advice would be avoid HOA. Yeah. Avoid condo associations, avoid HOAs, avoid areas that have that. Oh, condo associations are the worst. Yeah. I mean, not any worse than HOAs. It's. You call it a condo association when it's a condo, that's the only difference. [00:21:10] Yeah. But they're why do you say they're the worst? Well, because they're, I'm thinking of it as [00:21:21] a lot of times they're in vacation destinations, for example, beach. Oh, well, those are the ones where I would, that that's the exception to the rule for me that are, are typically vacation destinations, but those are the ones that might actually be okay. Yeah. I would say that's the exception because it's typical, right? [00:21:45] It's it's like a, a common thing to do in that area, right? Yeah. Like everybody has a short term rental at the beach. Like all the condos at the beach are, yeah. There are buildings term rentals that are condo buildings where like they're. Vacation rentals. Cause they're, but if you're, [00:22:00] but if you're not, then you really need to watch out if you're, if you're looking to short term rental a condo, because they're, they're definitely going to be some restrictions in the, in the condo associations, for sure. [00:22:15] Yeah. Well, even if there aren't the risk is that they'll change it. Mm. Yeah. See. Right. Cause an HOA is just a, a group of six people that. volunteered a lot of times just to do it, cuz nobody else would want to right. Nobody supposed to be on the board, you know, and then they can propose amendment amendments and things that get changed. [00:22:36] And condo associations are very much the same way. Mm-hmm yeah. Now typically the group passed a vote on, right. I was gonna say. the fact that it's there at all is usually driven by who's on the HOA. Now, if you could control the HOA mm. Or you can control the condo association, meaning you own most of the condos in the building, then maybe it's not as much of a risk. [00:22:57] Right. That's interesting. But it is a risk and it's something you want to mitigate first by just avoiding it. Sure. And two, by reading the current rules, right? You gotta read the rules, but realize they can change. And one of the, a, one of the HOAs we're in right now is proposing to change. The rules to, and it's a time again, they're saying, Hey, you can't lease a property for less than 30, less than six months. [00:23:22] Oh, six months. Okay. Six months, the neighborhood we live in is 12. Right. So it makes it very difficult. Well, is it possible? Yeah, but I would rather go to lower hanging fruit, you know? So in those cases you end up having to. Generally mm-hmm or go back to a long term rental model, right? Mm-hmm so that's a risk. [00:23:45] So I would just stay out of them to begin with. so that's how you mitigate your risk there. right. Is just avoid them. Right. But it's hard to avoid your local government and it's hard to avoid your state government, you know? So in those cases, I think that's really what [00:24:00] more people are more concerned about. [00:24:01] Mm-hmm cause that those you can't avoid, you know, they're going to do it and they are dominion over you, right. Yeah. Right. Well, you can't avoid the, the landlord either. I mean, if you are doing the rental arbitrage model, then. You have to, the landlord's gonna give you a lease. True. Right? Like there, there are some apartment buildings that just won't let you do it. [00:24:24] Yeah. I just don't. Yeah, basically it did. And it's okay. Next. Right. So you just don't operate there. Yeah. Please don't operate under the radar. You don't want to go to business on no. Any of these scenarios, by the way. You don't want build a business on hiding no, that is poor ethics, right? It's it's poor ethics, but it's also not a very good business foundation. [00:24:45] I mean, and that's just risky. It's a house of cards waiting to come down, right? Oh boy. Yeah. It's only a matter of time. So I actually enjoy operating in areas that have regulations. I was gonna say that, well, you say it then. Well, because it takes out a lot of competi. Well okay. For that reason, but it also gives you more certainty. [00:25:07] Well, that's true too. So if you're in an area like Charlotte, that has no short term rental regulations, so it's kind of a free for all. Yeah. Now you have to worry about what if they put some in. well, now that, and I don't know what they're gonna be. Well, now that brings us nicely to Todd's question. Right? [00:25:26] What do I, how do you, how do you mitigate your risk or how do you protect your asset is actually the way he said it. Mm-hmm if, if regulations change right. Well, at first I would point out that there's very few indu, well, there's no industry, there's no industry. That's not subject to regulation risk. [00:25:49] there's not a single one. Well, yeah, that's a really good point. Great example. The government says, okay, car companies, your average fleet now has to get 35 miles to the gallon, [00:26:00] right? That's a regulatory risk. They're not set up for that. They make most of their money selling big Ford trucks. Like that's a regulatory risk to. [00:26:10] right. And so their job now as a business, as entrepreneurs, I guess, is to navigate that. So as entrepreneurs, that's what we do. We navigate changes. Things always change and there's always regulatory risk, no matter what industry you're in. That's true. So there's that but a lot of what we advocate is the, the systems and processes that you put in place. [00:26:34] Should be anticipating that like this noise section of this ordinance here says, Hey, you know, we're gonna find you if. Your gas, violate noise, ordinances. Mm-hmm and a lot of times that's gonna come from well, neighbor complained and said that you were loud. Right? Right. So one of the things we put in all of our units is a noise monitoring device. [00:26:57] Yes. And it, it monitors testable levels, 24, 7, 365. Yep. So one, we know if it's happening and we can put it in a stop to it before it becomes a violation. And two, we have the evidence to defend ourselves. If it didn't happen. Right. If they say, Hey, they were loud at one in the morning, what are you gonna do about it? [00:27:19] We can actually go back to the device and say, well, actually the decimal levels were this inside the unit. Right? Right. And so if you, if you get caught cutting corners and skipping kind, some of these, these steps that are in place, then all of a sudden new regulation, now you've gotta put the cost out to do that thing. [00:27:39] Or you get a violation, right. And it says in here, I think if you get more than three in a year, they take your license away. Mm. So there's, there's that? So you gotta, part of it is having the systems in place. Other things I've seen in ordinances are around health and safety. Like you, you have to keep a record of. [00:27:58] When the batteries are [00:28:00] changed and the battery levels in your smoke detectors and the smoke detectors. And we do that. Well, the system that we have does that right for us. So since we use a security system, that's integrated into the smoke detectors and the carbon monoxide detectors, we actually can see that remotely. [00:28:14] Yeah. So we already have a record of that. Yep. That is kept already. So if the regulation changes, it's kind of like, cool. We already do that. Right. Right. So, so having these things in place, you know, already yeah. Having a team in place, having a number that okay, here's where you can call, if you have a problem. [00:28:34] Well, we kind of already have that. Right. And we have that 24 hour here's contact information stuff. Right. Mm-hmm we already post that so that the guest knows where to contact us. Right. Right. So a lot of these things you can do preventatively so that you don't get caught flat footed when the regulation comes, cuz it's probably coming. [00:28:54] It's prob some form of regulation is coming sometime. Sure. Whenever there's money involved, , , that's funny. The government gets involved, right? because they always want a piece of it because the demand is there that it's not short term rentals are not going away. Yeah, no, there's no way that genie is out the bottoms. [00:29:11] There's no way it's already become established in our society of the lives. Yeah. The demand is there. And it always will be. And people aren't just gonna say, oh, well, I guess we'll go back to hotels. That's not what's gonna happen. No, it's not for sure. The demand is there and the industry will provide, find a way to provide it. [00:29:28] No doubt about it. So there's that. So don't, don't assume that, Hey, if they would they say. Crack down on Airbnb in Atlanta, that it won't go back the other way at some point, because the demand is there. Yeah. For it. And we saw that actually happen in Anaheim, California. They came out pretty draconian restrictions and then kind of eased back off of that because there needed to be a balance there mm-hmm [00:29:54] Yeah. And frankly, the, you know, Atlanta didn't go full. [00:30:00] Crazy on it. right. They just said, here's how you can do it. Right. Right. I feel like most of them are that way. Yeah. They are because they've seen what's happened in other places. So as time goes on, these kind of things are gonna get way more predictable because they're going to be more, I'm gonna use uniform, the word uniform mm-hmm even though they're that's true. [00:30:21] Different localities. Mm-hmm I feel like that's true. Like they're all gonna require you to have the noise thing. You know, you know, check the battery levels on the smoke. You have a contact, have a contact. And frankly, if you're operating correctly, you're already doing a of those things anyway. And I think that's the whole point of, of this mm-hmm if you're operating correctly, you should already be doing those things. [00:30:46] So if the regulations change, you're not stuck. Saying. Okay, well, crap. I gotta put this system in place. You're already doing it if you're operating correctly. Yeah. You know what? I think one of the biggest things that we can do as operators to protect our investment is, is simply to educate. Mm. Yeah. [00:31:06] Cause a lot of the times the, the city council or, you know, whoever's making these decisions. They're not in the industry. Right. And they just don't know that and they read headlines like this. Right. They, or, or something like it, like something's happened at an Airbnb and they're like, oh shit, what do I do? [00:31:27] Right. Yeah. Like there was a shooting at an Airbnb. Yes. Right? Like you used to see those headlines. When I think the Ford Explorer made SUVs popular. And when they first came out, you would see these headlines that says SUV. in an accident, SUV mows down pedestrian or something, or SUV kills a child or right. [00:31:47] Yeah. Nothing about like, Hey, somebody was driving the thing right. That actually did that. Right. Right. And, and you see that in, in this instance too, because frankly people aren't educated. They, [00:32:00] they think Airbnb means party. They think Airbnb means vacationers, right? They think Airbnb means, oh my God, there's gonna be these people next to us that we don't know who they are. [00:32:13] Oh my God. And they're gonna constantly coming in and out. Right. Or when, when it's, they don't know, we live in a neighborhood of 500. we don't know half the people that live our here. Oh God, I wouldn't. Oh, well it could be somebody either third. That's a criminal. Well, you know, somebody can buy a house in the neighborhood without a credit. [00:32:31] I mean, well, they probably get a credit check. Well, without a background check, that's true. There's no background check required to buy a house in your neighborhood's true. That's a very, and you don't know who they are and you don't know what friends they have coming over and what their record is. Right. [00:32:44] But we don't think about those things because. It seems normal to us. And a lot of times there's this irrational fear of something. That's actually a better situation because it's more controlled rather than somebody, anybody can just it's. It would always be it's like anybody can just come in our neighborhood and buy a house. [00:33:06] right. That's true. But, but there's, there's not much concern over that. There's this concern over? Well, anybody could just stay there. Right. But no, we actually do guest screening and we actually do run background checks on people. Oh, go figure. And we do look to see, see that they have good reviews. And so those people are probably gonna be better neighbors than potentially someone who's gonna buy next to you. [00:33:27] Mm-hmm . But in, in, in, I think educating the public and educating. Elected officials on yep. Not only the benefits, but how it's some oftentimes better for the community. Because it, it actually can raise property, manual values, which that's another thing, you know, you, you see this back and forth, back and forth of two things that can't be true at the same time. [00:33:55] right. Like, Hey, there's so many short term rentals that it. [00:34:00] Decreasing housing stock and making the price of everything go up. Right. And now there's, you know, we're gonna get rid of 'em so that we can have more affordable housing in the area. and then at the same time you have people saying, well, we have this short term rental in our neighborhood and it's negatively affecting our property value values. [00:34:17] Right. So, which is it like, are they going up or down? , you know, which, which thing are you talking about? Right. Right. And, and both of those things can't necessarily be true at the same time. So a lot of it, I think is, is it's a need jerk reaction. It's a fear misunderstanding, frankly, of what. A good short term rental really is. [00:34:38] Cuz there are people that just allow anything right. And don't control their properties and don't keep them up. [00:34:45] And that's why I actually like the idea of some regulation that says, okay, you guys, you need to be doing it this way. So I would rather see regulations, frankly, that say, Hey, here's the stuff you gotta have in your unit. Mm-hmm, , you know, here's the control you need to be able to have of your property. Here's the you know, you can't just have 20 people in a one bedroom apartment. [00:35:07] And then on the flip side of that, The police department, frankly, let us be able to call them and say, Hey, we have people in violation of the short-term rental ordinance that are in our unit. Can you please help us with that? Right. And, and not tell don't tell me, well, there's nothing I can do about it. [00:35:24] Yeah. Cause that that's, that's what would really make rentals from my perspective, better for the community. Mostly if we could get assistance from the city, when there is a problem. so not only can, you know, instead of us having to go over there and take care of ourselves, at least have some teeth and some backup to say, Hey, what you're doing is actually gonna get you escorted out by the Charlotte MC brick police department. [00:35:53] Right. That would be really great that that would make the quality of the neighborhood [00:36:00] better. That would make short term rentals more of a benefit to the community. Then a detriment sometimes. Right. And I will say the vast majority of guests are fine. So it's that one in 10 that you get and that's the one you need help with. [00:36:14] Yep. And being responsible operators. We only, we don't want that either. No, goodness gracious. No. , you know, I, I value the quiet enjoyment of my yes. Neighbors. I, I value, I have a large investment in that place. Yes. You know, I don't want somebody tearing it up either. Right. For sure. I don't even want 'em smoking in there. [00:36:34] I mean, we, we wanna be good neighbors, so it's in our best interest to operate that way. Please help us with that. So that's the kind of regulation I would rather see actually. Yeah. Mm-hmm, . But unfortunately it, it often comes down to, okay, well, we're gonna restrict the number of that you can have or how close together they can be. [00:36:56] Doesn't make any sense. Or, and it's, it's not really the, in my opinion, it's not really the proper solution for what I think they're trying to get at. And I was mostly concerned with safety and security, I would say. Yeah, it's always trash, trash noise, trash noise. And. Safety. Yeah. So it's, it's those three things, and those can be addressed if you're operating a system. [00:37:20] Yes. Like, like we advocate and that we were taught and that we teach others and that we teach others. So if you, if you wanna know more about that system follow more of these videos, if you like this like, and subscribe. Do you have anything else you wanna say about that? No. Okay. I felt like we were kind of in a natural yeah. [00:37:37] Place to finish that. Yep. Okay. It was really great. Great, great information. We hope that you found some value.

Today, we are continuing our Friday almost-live shows where we review the news of the week with a cohost. Welcome back to the program today's cohost: Seattle Axios reporter, Melissa Santos. [00:01:00] Melissa Santos: Hello, thanks for having me. [00:01:01] Crystal Fincher: Hey, thanks for being back. We always enjoy having you. So there were a number of things that happened this week. I think we'll start off just talking about the elections real quick. We got more results this week. Things are looking more conclusive - a couple of late-straggling races have been decided, including one of the congressional - two, really of the congressional district races. It looks like in the 47th Legislative District race that Republican Bill Boyce will be facing Democratic candidate Senator - former Senator - Claudia Kauffman. And that in the 47th House seat, that Democrat Shukri Olow and Democrat Chris Stearns will both be getting through and Republicans will actually not be making it in that seat, despite that race including three different Republicans - one the pick of the GOP that raised over $200,000, Carmen Goers, who actually finished in last place. So a number of things got settled, but overall, as you look at these elections, what are your takeaways, Melissa? [00:02:16] Melissa Santos: On the legislative side, really things look mostly similar to what they looked like on primary night, in the sense that a lot of the races that Republicans had hoped to pick up, I think Democrats still look really strong in. And that's in a lot of those swing districts in the suburbs - in Island County, the Democrats have pretty strong performances in some House races that I think Republicans have been eyeing for a pickup in the 10th District. The 28th Legislative District looks pretty much like the incumbent Democrats are in really good shape there - that's around Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Lakewood, University Place. And I think that the Republicans not having someone in that 47th District open seat is maybe not what people would've predicted when talking about a red wave coming this year, and that Democrats have been saying - we're just trying to defend what we have, we're not really planning to add seats here. But they look like they're in a pretty good position to defend the seats. The only place where things look like it'll be rough for Democrats are seats up in the 47th - sorry, the 42nd Legislative District in Whatcom County, I think, have some disappointing results for Democrats when it comes to trying to get the former - the State Senate seat formerly held by Republican Doug Ericksen. That's gonna be a tough race where it looks like the State House Democratic Rep who's running for it might have a really tough race to fight in November. She wants to pick up that seat for the Democrats. But again, Democrats were trying to just defend mostly this year. So I think they look like they're in a pretty good position to do that. One thing that's a little bit interesting is a lot of the fringier types in the Republican legislative caucus in the House are actually not going to be returning to the legislature next year. And some of that's just because they ran for Congress in some cases, like Brad Klippert. [00:04:15] Crystal Fincher: And Vicki Kraft. [00:04:16] Melissa Santos: Yes, and Vicki Kraft. So I'm interested to see how that plays out. There are some races where legislative candidates who are being accused of being RINOs [Republicans In Name Only] actually have advanced through the primary. And I am wondering if some Republicans - are they more moderate or just hoping that they beat the more Trumpy Republicans essentially. So that's something I'm watching actually going forward is - while we certainly have situations across the nation where Trump-endorsed Republicans are getting through - we see this in the 3rd Congressional District race, here in our state, where Jaime Herrera Beutler who voted to impeach Trump will not be getting through to the general - that was finalized this week. But locally in legislative races, I'm not sure that the more far-right candidates will win out in all these races in November. So I'm watching that - how does our state picture, when it comes to the Republican party, compare to what we're seeing nationally. And it's always interesting to see how Washington does 'cause we're a little bit different sometimes as a state in how we vote versus the rest of the country. [00:05:25] Crystal Fincher: Yeah, absolutely. And that sets up an interesting dynamic for Republicans, I think, in that it is really helpful when - just from a campaign perspective - when everyone is consistent with the message that's being delivered for the party, what priorities are in terms of values. And so there have been - legislatively - some more moderate Republicans making it through. There are certainly some real extremists. And again, "moderate" is an interesting word for Republicans 'cause - when it is gonna come to some of these caucus votes, I think moderation is gonna effectively fly out of the window. Or being afraid to speak out on certain things that challenge some of the more extreme elements in the party, which essentially in my opinion, enables that element of the party. But with Joe Kent higher on the ticket and being so visible, being a frequent guest on Hannity, Trump-endorsed, and really vocal about a number of things like opposing aid to Ukraine, about wanting Jim Jordan - who is extremely problematic and has been accused of ignoring sexual assault allegations on his watch under his responsibility - wanting him to replace Kevin McCarthy as the leader of the party, certainly moving in a much more extreme direction. A number of those things are gonna be inconsistent, I think, with what some of the other Republicans, I think legislatively under JT Wilcox certainly, Republicans are gonna wanna be talking about. So there may be just a bit of a mismatched message there and it will be interesting to see how the party navigates that, but especially coming from a place where the extremism - you look at the primaries - certainly did not land. And some of, even the criticisms just legislatively, of Republicans who were on the message that they wanted to be on, did not turn out to be very effective at all - that presents a challenge for them in the general. [00:07:40] Melissa Santos: I think that was interesting in the Federal Way area. I think everyone, including Democrats, were saying - yeah, there's a lot of voters concerned about public safety there. I think everyone thought maybe the Democrats might be a little bit more vulnerable from attacks from Republicans in that area in South King County around Federal Way, with Republicans say - Hey, Democrats passed all these bills that hamstring police, so they can't keep you safe. I think everyone thought that line of argument might work better in some of those areas in South King County than it did. And so I'm wondering if Republicans will change their approach or not, or if they're just gonna stick with hammering Democrats on public safety. I think that maybe we'll see just more talk about economy and inflation and maybe a little less of the public safety attacks - possibly - based on those results. [00:08:29] Crystal Fincher: And they certainly hit hard on both of those. It is interesting to see - particularly - so you have Jamila Taylor, who is the incumbent representative there, there's another open House seat, and then Claire Wilson in the Senate seat. Jamila Taylor, who's the head of the Legislative Black Caucus, did play a leading role in passing a lot of, number of the police accountability reforms that police, a number of police unions, and people who are saying "Back the Blue" and these were problematic. She actually has a police officer running against her in that district. And also, the mayor of Federal Way, Jim Ferrell, is running for King County Prosecutor on a hard line, lock 'em up kind of message. They've been working overtime to blame legislators, primarily Jamila Taylor, for some of the crime that they've seen. And holding community meetings - really trying to ratchet up sentiment against Jamila Taylor - helping out both her challenger and Jim Ferrell was the plan. And again, that seemed to fall flat. Jamila Taylor finished with 54% in that race and the most votes out of any Democrat. You saw Democrats across the board, both Claire Wilson and Jamila Taylor, get 54% and 55% of the vote. In a primary, that is certainly where you would want to be and that's really a hard number to beat in the general. And then in the other open seat, you had two Democratic candidates combine for, I think, 55% of the vote. So it is - where they attempted to make that argument the hardest, it seemed to fall almost the flattest. And it goes to - we talked about this on the Post-Primary Recap a little bit - I think it goes to show that the conversation publicly - certainly the political conversation about public safety - I think is too flat and does not account for where the public actually is. I think people are absolutely concerned about crime and rightfully so - we have to attack gun violence, we have to attack property crime and violent crime. We have to do better than we're doing now. But I think people are recognizing that the things that we have been doing have not been successful. And we have been trying to lock people up and people see that there's a need for behavioral health interventions, for housing, for substance use treatment and that those things are absent. And that you can send a policeman to do that, but they don't have the tools to address that even if they were the appropriate responder. And there's a lot of people saying they aren't even the appropriate response for a number of these things. So I just think regular voters - regular people - just have a more nuanced and realistic view of what needs to happen. [00:11:42] Melissa Santos: I also think that message - we could talk about those races forever, probably - but I think that message might land especially flat in communities like South King County that are predominantly people of color in many of these communities. They want to address - well, okay, I should not group everyone together, let me back up here - but I think a lot of people see the effects of crime on their communities and their family members and want support, not just a crackdown. And I don't know if that - I don't know - I'm generalizing here and I shouldn't, but I think that maybe that - [00:12:09] Crystal Fincher: I think it's across the board. I feel like - we saw polling in Seattle where, even if you break it down by Seattle City Council district, whether it's North Seattle or West Seattle which are predominantly white areas, in addition to other areas with higher percentage of people of color - they're saying near universally - when given, asked the question - where would you allocate more of your tax dollars in the realm of public safety to make a difference? They start off by saying behavioral health treatment, substance use disorder treatment, treating root causes. And then "more officers" trails those things. So it's - and even before more officers, they're saying better training for officers so they do a better job of responding when they are called. So I just think that across the board, there's - Republicans have gotten far and have done a lot by talking about the problem. And I think what the primary showed is that you're gonna have to do a better job of articulating a logical and reasonable solution to the problem. 'Cause people have heard talk about the problem for a long time, this isn't new. They're ready for someone to do something about it and they want to hear something that sounds credible, with some evidence behind it, that'll make a difference. And I don't think Republicans articulated that at all. And I think Democrats are talking about things more in line with where voters are at. But certainly, we could talk about those election results forever, but we will move on to other news. Speaking of newly elected people, we have a new appointment of a person on the Tacoma City Council - Olgy Diaz was just unanimously appointed as the first Latina member of the Tacoma City Council last Tuesday night. She was one of 43 applicants to apply, ended up making the shortlist, and then was officially appointed on Tuesday night. What did you take away from this? You previously covered - based in Tacoma, covered Tacoma previously, worked at The News Tribune. What does Olgy bring to the Council? [00:14:41] Melissa Santos: Olgy is really experienced in politics, I want to say. For way back when - I think I started talking to Olgy years and years ago - she was, definitely in her role with leading One America, she's done a lot of policy work at the state level for a long time. She worked in the Legislature, so I talked to her in that capacity. And she brings a lot of experience to the table - I think more than a lot of people who apply for vacancies on city councils, for sure. But I honestly was also just - I was blown away to read - I didn't realize the Tacoma City Council has never had a Latina member before and that really blew my mind, given the diversity of Tacoma and given that that's a community where you have people who just weren't represented for such a long time. I worked in Tacoma for eight years at the paper and I didn't - I guess I didn't realize that was the case. So Olgy - separately - brings just a ton of experience. She leads the National Women's Political Caucus of Washington now as president and I talked to her for stories in that capacity, and she's always very knowledgeable and really thoughtful. But yeah, that's just - in terms of representation, she brings a lot to the Council that apparently it hasn't had - in terms of experience and lived experience as well. I didn't watch the whole appointment process every step of the way, but it seems like that is a very solid choice, given that you have someone coming in possibly that has way more, broader political knowledge than a lot of the sitting councilmembers in some cases. And that's not a knock on the sitting councilmembers, but you just have someone really, really versed in politics and policy in Washington State coming onto that city council. [00:16:26] Crystal Fincher: Yeah, and an unusual amount of experience. I think, to your point, not a knock on anyone else. Olgy just has an unusual amount of experience on both the policy and political side. She's the Government Affairs Director for Forterra, she's president of the National Women's Political Caucus as you said, on the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition and Institute for a Democratic Future board. She's previously been on the city's Human Rights Commission. She just has so many, so much experience from within, working within the legislature and elsewhere. And if - full disclosure - Olgy Diaz is not just a friend, but also worked for Olgy as her consultant and love the woman. But just completely dynamic and if you know Olgy, you know she reps South Tacoma harder than anyone else just about that you've ever met. She deeply, deeply loves the city, particularly South Tacoma, and has been an advocate for the city in every role that she's had. So just really excited to see her appointed. In other local news - this week, Seattle, the Seattle City Council stood up and passed protections for abortion and gender affirming care. What did they do? [00:17:52] Melissa Santos: They passed something that makes it a misdemeanor for someone to interfere, intimidate, or try and threaten someone who is seeking an abortion and they also have some civil rights protections that they passed. Those are especially - you might not think that's necessarily an issue in Seattle all the time, but I think that - certainly the misdemeanors for trying to interfere for someone getting treatment or getting abortion care, I think that is something that could actually be used and called upon sometime in Seattle with certain individual cases. And I do think it's - not necessarily in a bad way - but a messaging bill on both of them - in a way saying - care is protected here. Even though in Washington State we do have some state law protections for abortion - better than in most states - I think it's partly about sending a message to people that your care will not be interfered with here. And maybe even a message to people in other states - that they can come - actually that is part of it - is that you can come to Seattle and get care and you will not, we will support you. And so that's part of why they're doing it - both on a practical level, but also sending a message that we will not tolerate people trying to dissuade, to discourage people who decided to get an abortion from getting the care that they are seeking. [00:19:18] Crystal Fincher: And I know Councilmember Tammy Morales has also said that she plans to introduce further legislation to prevent crisis pregnancy centers from misrepresenting the facts, misleading people - which has happened in other situations with pregnancy crisis centers, which sometimes bill themselves as abortion care providers. A person seeking an abortion finds them, goes, and unexpectedly is - in some situations - heavily pressured not to have an abortion. And there's been situations where they have been found to have been coerced into not having an abortion. And so that would just seek to make sure that everybody correctly represents themselves, and who they are, and what they are attempting to do. Lots of people do, to your point, look at Seattle and say - okay, but this - things were safe here anyway. I do think the first one - we see a lot of counter-protestors - of people making points in Seattle, going to Seattle to protest different things, because it has a reputation for being progressive, where progressive policy is. So it attacks people who really dislike those policies and moving in that direction. I think this is helpful for that. And it serves as model legislation. There are some very red areas here in the state. There are other localities - we may have neighboring states that - the right to abortion is coming to an end. And so having legislation like this that has passed in the region, that has passed nearby, that is in place, that survives legal challenges against them makes it easier for other localities to pass the same. And so I think that it is a very positive thing for Seattle to take the lead passing model legislation. Certainly aren't the first to pass, but having it in the region is very, very helpful. So glad to see that. Also this week - some challenging news. One - monkeypox, now referred to as MPV, cases have been doubling nearly every week in Washington and has been declared a public health emergency. Where do we stand here? [00:21:37] Melissa Santos: I think that right now, we have about 220 cases - and that's what I think I saw on the CDC website just earlier today. And last week, it was 70 fewer than that, at least - we have been seeing, especially early on, every week or so the cases were doubling in our state. And we remember how COVID started in a way - it was small at first and things just can really expand quickly. This isn't spread the same way COVID is - and I'm not saying it is - but we do definitely have a vaccine shortage here for this and that's a huge concern. I asked the State Department of Health - actually, I have not put this in the story yet, but I was like - how many people do you feel like you need to treat that are at high risk? And they said it's almost 80,000. And took me a long time to get that number, but I think we only have - we only are gonna have something like 20-something thousand vaccines doses coming in, maybe 25,000, through at least early September. So there's a lot of potential for this to spread before we get vaccines to treat the people who are most at risk. That's a big concern. And so I haven't checked in our state yet - this sort of decision that we can stretch these doses further by divvying them up and doing, making each dose into maybe five doses - that could really help here. So I need to check whether in our state we're going forward with that and if that meets the need or not. But we still need a second dose for everybody, even beyond that. So it looks like the math just doesn't work and we're still gonna be short. And in that time, how far will it spread? Because it's not just - it's not a sexually transmitted disease that only is going to spread among LGBT individuals - other people are getting it and will get it. So that is - and also that community needs as much support as they can get anyway, regardless. But this is not something that just affects someone else, for instance, if you're not a member of that community. It's something that can affect everybody, and it's - everyone's afraid of another situation like we had with COVID - could it spread before we get a handle on it? And I think it's still an unknown question right now. [00:23:57] Crystal Fincher: Yeah, big unknown question. And to your point, it was - the CDC just announced that the vaccine supply can be stretched by giving one-fifth of the normal dose, so stretched five times what we thought we previously had. But that was just announced, so our local plans for that are probably in progress and process and hopefully we'll hear more about that soon. But haven't yet as that information was just announced - I want to say yesterday, if not day before. With that, to your point, it is - some people are under the mistaken impression that this is a sexually transmitted infection. It is not. It can spread by just skin-to-skin contact. If two people are wearing shorts and at a concert, or have short-sleeve shirts and are rubbing against each other, it can be spread just by touching especially infected lesions, by surfaces if there's a high enough amount on a surface. It is pretty hardy - lasts a long time on a number of surfaces or clothes or different things like that. Certainly a lot of concern with kids going back into school, kids in daycare that we may see an increase particularly among children - just because they are around each other and touching each other and playing as they do and that is how this virus can spread. So certainly getting as many people, starting with the highest risk people, vaccinated is important. We are short - there are just no two ways about that and running behind. Testing capacity has also been a challenge. So hopefully with these emergency declarations that we've seen locally and nationally that we fast forward the response to that and get prepared pretty quickly, but we will say that. Also this week, most COVID emergency orders have been ended. What happened here? [00:26:08] Melissa Santos: Some of them are still getting phased out, but the governor just very recently announced in our state that he's going to be - he's ending 12 COVID emergency orders. And so I went - wait, how many are left then, 'cause I don't think we have that many. And the governor's office - there's only 10 - once these mostly healthcare, procedure-related orders are phased out, will only be 10 COVID emergency orders left. And honestly, some of those have even been scaled back from what they were. They're - one of the orders relates to practicing some safe distancing measures or certain precautions in schools - that's really a step back from having schools be completely closed, like we had at one point. So even those 10 aren't necessarily as stringent as the orders we were seeing earlier in the pandemic. What does that really signify? I think that the governor has said - because we have good treatment options available, it doesn't mean that COVID is no longer a threat, but we have better ways of dealing with it essentially. It's not like early in the pandemic when nobody was vaccinated. We have a fairly high vaccination rate in our state compared to some others. And we have some treatment options that are better. And at least right now - well, I say this - our hospitals aren't pushed completely beyond capacity. Although, however - this week Harborview actually is over capacity, so that's still a potential problem going forward. But we just have better ways of dealing with the virus than we did. It doesn't mean it's not a threat, it doesn't mean that people aren't still getting hospitalized and even dying - because they are. But we're moving to a different stage of this pandemic where we're just not going to have as many restrictions and we're going to approach the virus in a different way. [00:27:51] Crystal Fincher: Yeah. Yeah, that pretty much covers it there. [00:27:56] Melissa Santos: The thing - I do think for public - I've asked the governor a couple times - what is your standard for lifting the underlying emergency order? 'Cause we still are in a state of emergency over COVID and that does give the governor, if something comes up, quick power to ban some activity or something. And if there's a public health risk, he could order, for instance, indoor mask wearing again if he wanted. He has not indicated he plans to, but it gives him a little more power. Republicans are still mad about that, but in effect, there aren't that many orders actually in place anymore. We're just not living under as many restrictions as we once were. [00:28:34] Crystal Fincher: Yeah. So the protections are going away - there are lots of people who are very concerned about this. This does not seem tethered to - earlier in the pandemic - in some situations when cases were spreading at a lower amount than they were in some areas then than they are today - they tied it to certain metrics and to hospital capacity and different things. So there seemed like there was an underlying data-based justification that would dictate what the appropriate health response was. This seems untethered from all of that. And I think a lot of people's criticisms of this are - the actions that are taken, or realistically the actions that are no longer being taken, the justification behind that seems to be driven by convenience or by a desire just to get back to normal or fatigue. And instead of what health precautions dictate would be wise. I think at the very minimum we would be a lot better off if - we were very late in, from the CDCs perspective, in acknowledging that this is an airborne virus. And so air quality, air purification, air turnover in indoor spaces is extremely important, especially given how helpful that is for wildfire air mitigation. We're having a higher, more low-quality air days than we have before. Focusing on indoor air purification - I wish there were more of a push for that, more awareness for that, more assistance for that. Because it just seems like - given this and monkeypox, which has evidence that it is spread also via airborne - [00:30:37] Melissa Santos: Or at least droplets in close - yeah, at least like close breathy, breathing-ey stuff. [00:30:44] Crystal Fincher: Yes - that air purification is important. And so I wish we would make a greater push because still - that's not really aggressively talked about by most of our public health entities. And there's just not an awareness because of that, by a lot of people who are not necessarily being, saying - no, I don't want to do that - but just don't understand the importance of that. And many businesses that could take steps, but just don't know that that's what they should be doing. Sometimes it's still here - well, we're sanitizing all of these surfaces, which is going to come in handy for monkeypox certainly, but is not really an effective mitigation for COVID when - hey, let's talk about air purification instead of you wiping down surfaces. Just interesting and this may ramp up again, depending on what happens with MPV infections and spread. So we'll see how that continues. [00:31:47] Melissa Santos: But this time we have a vaccine at least - there is a vaccine that exists. Remember the beginning of COVID - of course, everyone remembers - there was no vaccine. So this feels like - theoretically, we should be able to address it faster because we have a vaccine, but there's just a shortage nationwide of the vaccine. So that's, I think, an extra frustrating layer of the monkeypox problem - is that we have a tool, but we just don't have enough of it. In COVID, we just were all completely in the dark for months and months and months and months - and anyway. [00:32:17] Crystal Fincher: Yeah, and unfortunately the effect on the ground of not having enough is the same as not having any. [00:32:23] Melissa Santos: Right. Yeah. [00:32:24] Crystal Fincher: And so people are left with greater exposure to the virus and to spreading the virus than there would be otherwise, because we don't have the adequate supply of it. Which they say they're working on, but of course those things - unless you are prepared beforehand and making an effort to be prepared beforehand, it takes a while to get that ramped up. I think they're saying the earliest we could anticipate additional supply would be in the September timeframe, and oftentimes that's when it starts to trickle. And so it could be October before we see a meaningful amount of additional supply or longer. Just stay on top of information, be aware out there, and we will see. Very important thing happening within the City of Seattle - is Seattle City Council district redistricting, and what's happening. There have been some good articles written recently - both in The Seattle Times, especially in The Stranger by Hannah Krieg - about racial equity advocates actually being happy about the newly proposed political boundaries for council districts. But some residents of Magnolia, the expensive and exclusive Magnolia community, who have been known to advocate against any type of growth, or development, or any change to their community, other people getting greater access to their community and the political power that comes with who they've been and their ability to have an outsized voice, realistically, in local politics. They're not that happy. What's happening here? [00:34:16] Melissa Santos: The proposal that at least is moving forward at this point would split Magnolia, right? So this is something that communities of color have argued as being - Hey, in other areas, our communities are split and that dilutes our voice. And now it's interesting that Magnolia, which is not historically an area where - that has been predominantly people of color - every district in Seattle is changing - safe to say that it's been a whiter area. They're saying - Hey, wait, whoa, whoa, whoa - wait, we're gonna get split, that's gonna dilute our voice. So it's an interesting dynamic there. And what's also interesting - and it makes sense because the same organizations have been working on city redistricting and state redistricting, to some degree - we're seeing this movement to really unite and ensure communities in South Seattle are not divided. So in this - this was something that they really were trying to do with congressional districts - is make sure that South Seattle communities of color have a coalition and aren't split. And especially having the - well, let's see, and at least in state redistricting - making sure the International District is connected in some way to other parts of South Seattle and Beacon Hill. That was a priority in one of the congressional district redistricting for some of these groups that are now working on Seattle redistricting. One of the things that it would do is put South Park and Georgetown in the same district, which is interesting because I think those two communities work together on a lot of issues that affect the Duwamish and affect - again, a lot of people of color that live in those districts - there are issues that really would affect both of them. And so putting them in the same district, I could see why that would make sense. And you also have - I want to make sure I have this right, but I think - making sure Beacon Hill and it is connected to South Seattle as well. I'm gonna check here - is it also the International District here we're talking as well? Oh, Yesler Terrace - that's right. [00:36:12] Crystal Fincher: Yeah, so CID and Yesler Terrace will be in District 2 - kept them both in District 2 - that those were some really, really important considerations. And large percentages of those communities have talked about how important that is. You just talked about Georgetown and South Park being in that district. Looking at Lake City, Northgate, and Broadview in District 5. Also keeping growing renter populations together in South Lake Union and Downtown together there has been making a difference. Both communities of color and, as we talk in the larger redistricting conversation, communities of interest - and now with more than half of the City being renters - renters have been largely overlooked in terms of redistricting and City policy until now. And really what a number of these organizations are saying is - we've been overlooked, we have not been absent, but we've been ignored in this and communities and voices from places like Magnolia have been overrepresented and have been catered to this time. And there's a saying - when you're used to privilege, equity looks like oppression. And so Magnolia is saying - we're losing our voice - and kind of collectively, interests from the rest of the City are saying - no, what you're doing is losing the ability to speak over our voices. But now that we're all at the table and all have a voice, it's time for us to also be recognized as valid and important and worthy of preservation and continuity and representation and not have it broken up in favor of predominantly wealthy homeowners who are saying - well, we're a historically important community. Well, are you historically important and the change that the rest of the City has seen hasn't come to your district because you have fought so vehemently against it. And then turn around and say - and that's why you should cater to us and keep us together because we continue to fight against any kind of change. And realistically saying - hey, other districts have changed and boundaries need to change in those other areas to accommodate that. And so this does - certainly not all that advocates have asked for, but some meaningful progress and some promising boundaries, I think, for a lot of people in the City, for a lot of people who are not wealthy, for people who are renters no matter what the income is - because of the challenges that just the rental population is facing. And to your point, neighborhoods who have worked together and who share interests, who now have the opportunity to have that represented politically within the City? I think that's very helpful and I definitely hope people stay engaged. In this redistricting process. And as the voices from some of those communities who have had greater access to an ability to participate in these redistricting and City processes, and who've had the inside track and who have been listened to to a greater degree than others, that you add your voice to the conversation to make sure that it isn't drowned out by anyone else. Looking at a recent announcement - and kind of announcement is a better word than a new policy or a plan - because it is just announced and announced the intention to take action, but we have yet to see. There was a press conference yesterday about emergency walk-in centers for behavioral health cases, addressing our regional behavioral health crisis here. What was announced and what is the deal? [00:40:32] Melissa Santos: What exactly is going to happen remains a little bit unclear to me exactly, but basically King County Executive Dow Constantine announced a plan to just expand services for people who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis. And it's going to be part of his 2023 budget proposal, which isn't coming out 'til next month. So the idea is having more short- and long-term treatment - so more walk-in treatment that's available and more places to send people who have acute mental health needs. He was talking about how the County's lost a third of its residential behavioral healthcare beds - Erica Barnett at PubliCola reported on this pretty extensively - and there's just a concern there just won't be enough. I was surprised by the stat that there's only one crisis stabilization unit in the County that's 16 beds - that's not very much, especially when we know people suffer mental health crises more frequently than that small number of beds might indicate. So what's interesting is we want to put more money in somewhere so people aren't getting treated in jails, that they have a better place to go, but we're not quite - we don't know exactly the scope of this, or how much money exactly we're talking about to put toward more beds. I guess there's some plans to do so - is what I got from the executive. [00:42:06] Crystal Fincher: Certainly from a regional perspective, we saw representation from the mayor's office for the City of Seattle, county executive certainly, county council, regional leaders in behavioral health treatment and homelessness - all saying that - Hey, we intend to take action to address this. Like you said, Dow said that he will be speaking more substantively to this in terms of details with his budget announcement and what he plans to do with that. Universal acknowledgement that this is a crisis, that they lack funding and resources in this area, and say that they intend to do better with a focus, like you said, on walk-in treatment and the ability to provide that. But we just don't know the details yet. We'll be excited to see that. And you covered this week, just the tall task ahead of them, because we've spoken about before and lots of people have talked about even in this press conference, a problem that we almost require that people - the only access that people can get to treatment sometimes is if they've been arrested, which is just a wildly inefficient way to address this, especially when it plays a role in creating some of the problems with crime and other things. But even with the newly rolled-out intervention system with an attempt to - if someone who previously would've called 911 now can call a dedicated kind of other crisis line to try and get an alternative response - but even that is severely underfunded. What's happening with that? [00:44:00] Melissa Santos: So with 988 - this is the three-digit number people can call when they have a mental health crisis and they'll be connected to a counselor who can help talk them through it. The idea is ultimately for that system to also be able to send trained crisis responders - largely instead of police in many, many cases - meet people in-person, not just talk to them on the phone. But we just don't have enough of these mobile crisis response teams. There's money in the state budget to add more over the next couple of years, especially in rural areas that just don't have the coverage right now. They just don't have enough teams to be able to get to people when they need it. That's something they want to expand so there's more of a response than - that isn't a police officer showing up at your door. So that's the ultimate vision for this new line you call - 988 - but it's not fully implemented right now. You still will get some support. And if you call, I'm not trying to say people should not call the line, but they don't necessarily have all the resources they want to be able to efficiently deploy people - I shouldn't say deploy, it sounds very military - but deploy civilian trained helpers to people who are experiencing a crisis. So that's where they want it to go and The Seattle Times had an article just about how some of those designated crisis responders right now are just stretched so thin and that's just not gonna change immediately, even with some new state money coming in to add more people to do those sorts of things. And designated crisis responders have other duties - they deal with actually to getting people to treatment - some involuntarily in certain cases. Again, it's different than a police response and right now there's just not enough of those folks. [00:45:55] Crystal Fincher: Which jeopardizes the willingness of people to continue to call. Certainly the possibility that a police response can ultimately happen from someone who was requesting a behavioral health or another type of intervention response. And that is still a possibility which some people find challenging or - hey, they expected to avoid that or have something different if they call this and that might not always be the case. But it's certainly a challenge and I think one of the things that was talked about yesterday, which kind of wraps this under a whole umbrella, is there needs to be a lot more done in terms of infrastructure and capacity from - with there being someone to call, someone appropriate to call for whatever the challenge is, an appropriate response. If that is a behavioral health trained person, a crisis intervener, someone like that - and places to take people. Someone does respond and then can connect that person to services that exist. We have problems in a number of areas saying - yeah, we offered services or services are available and they aren't, or they aren't appropriate for the crisis that's there. They don't meet the needs of the person and their situation. So certainly a lot to build out. I think it is a positive step that we're hearing acknowledgement of this and a unified plan to take action, but still need to see what actually results 'cause sometimes we hear big fanfare to start and don't get much substantive on the back end. Certainly I hope with a number of the people involved in this that we do get some substantive progress and I hope to see that, I would expect to see that - but I'm looking forward to it.

What options do pilots have if they intend to fly in clear airspace near a designated DJI red zone? Today's question is from John, who is working on a project to conduct flight missions around a prison that is no longer functional yet is classified as a red zone by DJI. John would like to know if Pilots have options to fly in such clear airspace and what they would need to know prior to flying. Today's episode is brought to you by Drone U mapping events and classes. We talk about some of the new changes we have made to our mapping classes and course curriculum to stay updated with some of the recent trends in the mapping industry such as going over new products for geo-referencing, geo-tagging, GPS and more. Visit our Drone U events page for more details on classes and courses. We start off today's show by discussing 3 options that pilots have to effectively fly over red zone while also discussing the approximate times it would take to seek permission. Our option 1 is to apply to FAA to void a red zone and the steps required to seek clearance while flying over such areas. Drone U members have exclusive access to our step-by-step instruction video on applying to the FAA to void a red zone. Option 2 is to apply for a QEP (Qualified Entities Program). The Qualified Entities Program (QEP) allows Government and Public Safety entities to have their DJI drone's altitude and geo-fencing limitations unlocked and as a certified Part 107 pilot you could seek clearance under the program for conducting flights in red zones. Option 3 is to visit drone-hacks website and navigate through the process of negating geofencing abilities on your drone. Drone-hacks can assist pilots with differing firmware to ensure removal of geofencing abilities. We also discuss an additional option of using drones other than DJI that do not possess geofencing abilities and would allow flights irrespective of DJI's red zone. In summary we discuss the quick and easy steps available for pilots along with the timeline for each option that pilots can pursue to seek permission / unlock the DJI red zone.

The Cincinnati Reds bullpen has blown multiple games, recently, which makes everyone question David Bell's managing of the group. The answer is not defined roles, though, as Jeff and Steve point out, it is in having multiple trustworthy relief pitchers who can get the Reds out of jams at any point in the game. Tommy Pham may be causing a rift in the clubhouse with comments about pitching like the ones he made after Sunday's win, even if they may be true for Reds pitchers.
