Voice your budget priorities

The City Council is reviewing the Mayor's proposed 2013-2014 budget and we need your help.

Please take our budget survey to help inform our budget decisions. It is 19 questions and should only take about 10 minutes to complete. The questions include:

  • What priorities do you believe local government should focus on?
  • How safe do you feel in your neighborhood?
  • How satisfied are you with the city government services you receive?
  • Do you believe city government is responsive to the needs of Seattle's most vulnerable?

A second way to share your opinions with Councilmembers is to come down to City Hall and voice your priorities to the Council face-to-face at one of our two public hearings on either Thursday, October 4 and Thursday, October 25. Both will take place in Council Chambers (600 Fourth Ave, Second Floor); sign-ups begin at 5 p.m. and testimony starts at 5:30 p.m.

If you would like more background information on the Council's budget process, you can visit the Council's budget Web site: You can also e-mail all nine councilmembers at once using the address

My colleagues and I value your opinions. Please take the budget survey today and, if you're able, attend one of the public hearings. Thank you.

How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character by Paul Tough
The author of Whatever it Takes, the story of Geoffrey Canada and the Harlem Children's Zone, provides insight into the early development of children. What's best, cognitive or non-cognitive learning? Tough's theory is that character is what really matters.

Through the lens

Watch as I deliver closing remarks before the City Council voted 6-2 to move forward with a memorandum of understanding for a new sports and entertainment arena.
