Seattle Speaks: Move Seattle?
Seattle Speaks: Move Seattle?

Is the Move Seattle transportation levy a smart investment of property tax dollars? That was the question at Seattle Speaks, a live, community forum at Town Hall Seattle. Supporters say the proposal, which Seattle voters will decide on Nov. 3, offers solutions for the city's rapid growth. Critics maintain we can't afford the levy's high $930 million price tag. Proponents argue we can't afford to delay investments in safety, maintenance and congestion relief, while opponents contend the measure lacks facts and transparency and doesn't offer enough accountability. Is Move Seattle a building block for Seattle's future or a road block to progress?  Host Brian Callanan moderates the discussion.
