Description

Nearly 50 years ago, Seattle voters faced ballot initiatives, packaged as Forward Thrust, responsible for shaping many characteristics of today's city: public parks, the aquarium, multi-purpose sports stadiums, and, famously, the absence of a subway system. In the first installment of a four-part series of public discourse, Seattle-based author and social historian Shaun Scott turns to the values and progressivism exemplified by Forward Thrust—and how many of those initiatives that were turned down, such as ones for low-income housing and mass transit, pertain to the city's present.
