This November, Seattle voters will decide on the biggest levy in Seattle history - $930 million over nine years. The ambitious Move Seattle transportation measure, paid for through a property tax, replaces an existing transportation levy that expires at the end of 2015. Some critics say the proposal is a collection of disconnected projects and question where the levy dollars will go. Supporters say levy investments offer more choices to move people and goods around Seattle safely and affordably and will help the city keep pace with growth. Weigh in during the live, televised, interactive conversation!

Seattle Speaks: Privacy Politics

Seattle Speaks: Privacy Politics
4/22/20151:13:54

Privacy. It's an increasingly important topic in our digital world. But does releasing certain government-held data harm or help the public? While surveillance and information technologies have developed rapidly, privacy laws have not kept pace. City of Seattle leaders are pursuing a new privacy initiative that could impact everything from 911 calls to utility bills to recordings from police-worn body cameras. Host Brian Callanan moderates a live, televised community forum at Town Hall with privacy advocates, government, public-safety and technology leaders. Seattle Speaks is presented in partnership with Seattle CityClub and Town Hall.
