Historical NoteReturn to Top

The City Clerk maintains the City's legislative records, official filings, and the Seattle Municipal Archives; keeps the minutes of City Council meetings; and provides information services to City agencies and the public. Seattle's first City Charter allowed for a Clerk of the Common Council to be elected by the Council. In 1875 the position of City Clerk became elective and remained so until 1896 when the new Charter designated the Comptroller ex-officio City Clerk. The Comptroller served as City Clerk through 1992. A 1991 City Charter amendment transferred the Comptroller's function to the Department of Finance and the City Clerk's Office became a division of the Legislative Department effective in 1993.

The Mayor is the chief executive officer of the City with responsibilities for law enforcement, appointing department heads, administering City departments and programs, and preparing and executing the City budget. Seattle's original Charter (1869) created the position of Mayor who served as ex-officio President of the Common Council. The 1875 Charter gave the Mayor a vote on Council. That was amended in 1886 to provide for a tie-breaking vote only. The 1890 Charter completely separated the Executive and Legislative branches. Mayoral terms were set at 4 years by the 1946 City Charter.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Mayor’s Messages are a subset of the Comptroller Files or Clerk Files, known as CF Files, which consist of a wide variety of documents filed with the City Clerk’s Office. In 13 boxes, measuring 5.2 cubic feet, the Mayor’s Messages date from 1896 to 1989. The Messages are arranged chronologically by Mayor. Although a large percentage of Mayor’s Messages are represented in this collection, this collection is not a complete set of the Mayor’s Messages for these years. Additional Mayor’s Messages are added to the record group on an ongoing basis.

Consisting primarily of vetoes to Council Bills, the Mayor’s Messages also include annual messages to City Council, budget messages, executive orders, proclamations and various other communications. The Annual Messages are useful summaries of accomplishments for a specific year and also identify key issues for the following year from the Mayor's perspective. The vetoes are useful for identifying significant issues through the years. For example, liquor licenses are a frequent subject of vetoes through 1913, and railways and related issues can be traced through vetoes through the 1920s. Garbage collection is another issue that arises several times between 1903 and 1913. Of note is the quantity of vetoes submitted by Mayor Gill for the years 1910-1917.

While the Mayor’s Messages, in many cases, reflect the tone of the relationship the mayor had with Council, it should be noted that not all Council Bills were vetoed because of disagreement with the Council. Some Council Bills were vetoed for purely technical reasons. The abbreviation "CB" is used to denote "Council Bill" throughout the collection.
