Should Seattle Elect City Councilmembers By District?

A group has formed to try and push for Seattle City Councilmembers to be elected by district. Currently, the nine members of the council are elected citywide. There's a proposal to form seven new districts in the city, with two at–large positions. Would this be good for Seattle? We take a closer look.


Eugene Wasserman is president of the North Seattle Industrial Association and is backing the proposed change to a district voting system in Seattle.

Peter Steinbrueck is an architect and he served on the Seattle City Council from 1997 to 2007. Norman B. Rice is president and CEO of The Seattle Foundation.
