POLL: Do you plan to support the Families, Education, Preschool and Promise Levy?

In November, Seattle voters will decide whether to approve the biggest education measure in the city's history. Seattle Proposition 1, or the Families, Education, Preschool and Promise Levy, is a seven-year property tax that would replace two expiring levies and add two years of free college tuition for local high school students. Supporters say this investment is needed to close the opportunity gap, but opponents are pushing back on the $638 million price tag.
