Dear Council Member,

The City of Seattle has ambitious goals for reducing carbon emissions…but we can’t meet them if housing costs keep soaring, and force people to areas badly served by transit, where they have to drive. We need more affordable housing!

Last fall, you committed to a progressive tax on big businesses to pay for new affordable housing and homelessness emergency response. When the task force proposal comes in, we urge the council to raise $150 million per year through a progressive revenue package, including a tax on big business, to help make sure low-income people can still afford to live in Seattle, where they can also keep riding transit. Your constituents need this; it’s the right thing to do; and it will help make our city a more livable, sustainable place.

(If you write one, your personalized message will be added here.)

Thank you.
