Paul Schell | Former Seattle mayor, 76
Mr. Schell served one term as mayor from 1998 to 2002 before losing a reelection bid to Greg Nickels.
Murray said Mr. Schell left a mark on Seattle as one of the city's "builders." Under Mr. Schell, Seattle approved funding to build the renowned downtown library branch. He also led efforts for the first parks levy and played a key role in constructing the Olympic Sculpture Park and City Hall.
The protests paralyzed downtown Seattle. The city's response was heavily criticized and led to the resignation of the police chief.
