Civic Cocktail: Head Tax + Transportation

With a referendum looming, is Seattle's head tax in jeopardy? Seattle Chamber of Commerce CEO Marilyn Strickland thinks so. She says the business community shouldn't be viewed as "an ATM" to handle a regional issue. One of the sponsors of the controversial tax, Seattle City Councilmember M. Lorena González contends homelessness is a continuing crisis, and the city needs solutions now. On the transportation front, Seattle Deputy Mayor Shefali Ranganathan responds to headlines criticizing the city's ballooning price tag for bike lanes. She says there's much more to the story. With King County Metro's ridership through the roof, General Manager Rob Gannon outlines how the agency plans to improve service. And "Bus Chick" blogger Carla Saulter shares how her family of four has lived car-free in Seattle for 15 years! Host Joni Balter moderates the season-finale conversation.
