IM to MajorityReport 16-092316-Kshama Sawant 1000 houses

Seattle mayor Ed Murray has blocked a $160M police precinct “bunker” project to which city councilwoman Kshama Sawant recommended using to build 1,000 new houses for low income city residents. The mayor responded that it would violate funding laws to which the Legislative Department’s Central Staff published a memo which explains, at length, how this funding could be used by the City to fund the development of affordable housing. Sam, your able production staff should feel invited to seek the councilwoman to explain her position because she “encourage[s] all concerned to read the memo, and then reach out to my office at kshama.sawant@seattle.gov or 206-684-8016 to discuss how we can continue to build our movement to use this funding to build 1,000 affordable homes in Seattle.”
