Topics included municipal broadband, affordable housing, increased funding for the animal shelter, Seattle`s new Indigenous Peoples` Day, labor standards, waterfront development and more. The second half of the program focused on the mayor`s proposed 2015-2016 budget now before the City Council. The city`s budget director Ben Noble joined the mayor in fielding questions, which ranged from raising city employees` wages to adding police to the hopes of bringing an NBA team back to Seattle.
