Excerpt:

Mayor Ed Murray will deliver his annual State of the City address next week at a North Seattle mosque, he announced Monday.

The city's mayors usually give their State of the City speeches in the City Council's chambers at City Hall. That's where Murray delivered his first three such addresses.

But sometimes mayors choose other locations. In 2007, Greg Nickels gave a State of the City speech at a Rotary Club meeting in the Washington State Convention Center.

Murray will speak on Feb. 21 at Idris Mosque at 1420 N.E. Northgate Way. The event will be open to the public. The doors will open at 8:30 a.m. and the address will begin at 9:30 a.m.
