Sawant and Licata Debate in Favor of Rent Control in Seattle
With average rents in Seattle’s neighborhoods ranging from $1,063 to $1,871 per month and 47 percent of tenants feeling burdened by rent rates, rent control is the cause celebre for local lefties. Council members Kshama Sawant and Nick Licata will argue why Seattle needs rent control. Developer lobbyist Roger Valdez and Ellensburg Republican state representative Matt Manweller will try to challenge Seattle’s conventional lefty wisdom on this academic issue.
Debate: Rent Control in Seattle? Mon, July 20, 6pm, Town Hall Seattle, 1119 Eighth Ave, Free
