INITIATIVE 2020-10

REET abused by Land Bank

In 2011 continued funding for the Real Estate Excise Tax or REET (which is distributed to the Land Bank) passed by just 2.8%. The votes were 4,168 yes to 3,726 no. On San Juan Island it failed 1,565 no to 1,440 yes. Using that tax, the Land Bank has purchased over SIXTY million dollars worth of real property and millions more in easements. The Land Bank has had a 30 year run that’s removed over SIXTY million dollars of property off the tax roles. We think that’s enough

This sends a strong bipartisan message from local elected & health officials that Sno Co is ready to safely move to Phase 2. It’s a blessing to be part of a team of local leaders who recognize the common-sense approach to prioritizing both public health and our local economy. 2/2

PHASE 2 VOTE APPROVED: This morning, the County Council and the Board of Health each voted unanimously in support of the effort to move @snocounty to Phase 2 of reopening. We were joined in support by our local health officer and mayors from cities throughout the county. 1/2

What Seattle needs is better leadership – @MayorJenny and the @SeattleCouncil’s far left policy experiment is a failure.
