Urban Politics #64: The New City Hall / Civic Campus

The hardest question any candidate has to answer is, “Where are you going to cut the budget to pay for the things that you say you want to do for us?”


Urban Politics #63: Announcing UP Index On The Web

May 13th, 1999

For those of you who want to track issues that I have been writing about in Urban Politics, we now have a UP subject index posted on the web. There’s a link to it here. All of the past issues of UP are listed with the exception of UP #1, which probably less than 200 people received. This was my first attempt (in September 1996) at communicating with citizens through the internet and it may not even labeled as UP Issue #1. It dealt the City’s transfer of the Freeway Park Garage to the Washington State Convention Center. If anyone has a copy of it, please let me know. I’d like to add it to our index. Thank you.


Urban Politics #62: Fall Levy Renewal Ballot

May 3rd, 1999

The Mayor has proposed renewing a 1991 Levy this fall to provide funding for both the Seattle Center and neighborhood community centers. The 1991 levy expires this year; a renewal of it would not result in an increase in current property taxes. If approved by 50% of the voters, the new eight-year levy rate would be 15 cents per $1,000 of assessed value, the same as the current levy.
