As you’ll hear Karl de Jong of the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle say at the start of our video – ballots will arrive in the mail next week. So it’s time to start checking out the lesser-discussed issues and races. The Kiwanis hosted a forum at their weekly lunch meeting to take a look at Initiative 1185 (full text here), which would change the requirements for tax/fee approval by legislators. Amber Carter from the Association of Washington Business spoke in favor of it, 36th District State Rep. Reuven Carlyle against it, in a compact half-hour-long discussion all captured on unedited video above. You can see all the statewide ballot measures for this election here.

  1. Horrible initiative, this same issue passed in California in the 1990s and is the #1 reason their state is broke. Great illustration of republican vs democrat in this debate, should tell you all you need to know.

  2. I agree this imitative is not needed Seattle schools are working on innovate programs like stem schools. this will basically suck money out of existing public schools. charter schools are snake oil and though some are great some are terrible
