Statement from Chamber President & CEO on Tax on Jobs Council Vote

Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Marilyn Strickland said, “Taxing jobs will not fix our region’s housing and homelessness problems. If the Seattle City Council is serious about addressing these challenges, I hope we can count on their leadership on two critical issues: the HALA upzones, which address our outdated zoning, and aligning our fragmented homelessness services system.”

She added, “We appreciate the leadership Mayor Durkan showed in a challenging, politicized environment.”
