Seattle voters will decide this August whether to double the housing levy to $290 million. Supporters say the measure will create and preserve affordable housing, help low-income first-time home buyers and prevent homelessness in the city. Why are some homeowners voicing concerns over renewing the seven-year measure? Does it need to be doubled? Hear from both sides before mailing in your ballot!
