Seattle Money Measures Breakdown

August 5, 2016
A major money housing levy and a proposed park on the Alaskan Way Viaduct were before Seattle voters on primary election night. KCTS 9’s Enrique Cerna and political analyst Joni Balter explain why voters gave a big thumbs up to the housing levy and an even bigger thumbs down to the Viaduct proposal. Plus, a look at a monster of a money measure that will be put before the voters in November.
