State Bytes - Season 3: Seattle


State Bytes is back with its third season – and second elections-focused season. Once again, we’ll be gaining insight from lobbyists in states holding elections this fall.

For our eighth episode, we welcomed Holly Chisa of HPC Advocacy to talk about the upcoming City Council elections in Seattle, Washington. That's right, local races are also on the ballot this cycle! Tune in below! (We're also on Apple Podcasts.)



Holly gives us an overview of the current political landscape in Seattle. We discuss the dynamics of the four open seat races as well as the races with incumbents' up for re-election. Holly briefs us on the "Head Tax" and how it is still affecting the city.
