Charter Amendment 19: The Debate Over Districting The Seattle City Council
This election, Seattle residents have the opportunity to change the way they are represented by the city government. Charter Amendment 19 on the ballot would change the look of the City Council – instead of all nine members being elected at large to represent the whole city, voters would elect seven of those members by the districts they live in. The two remaining seats would continue to be elected by a citywide vote.
The Record’s Marcie Sillman sat down with an advocate from each side of the issue: Marjorie Rhodes from Choices, Not Districts; and Eugene Wasserman from Seattle Districts Now.
