The Seattle Restaurant Alliance is proud to endorse the Families, Education, Preschool and Promises Levy (Prop. 1), which will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot.
This levy seeks to bridge the opportunity gap for Seattle students, from preschool through college. The new levy will:
- Replace the expiring Preschool Levy, which subsidizes high-quality preschool
- Replace the expiring Families and Education Levy, which funds after- and out-of-school care to help high-risk students succeed in grades K-12
- Fund the Seattle Promise, which gives two years of free community college to every graduate of Seattle Public Schools
We believe that investing in the young people in our community today prepares the future workforce of tomorrow. The hospitality industry provides opportunities for those who work hard to climb the career ladder—prepared students can go on to excel in high-level positions. Leveling the playing field for Seattle students is the right thing to do, and we are proud to support our community through our endorsement of Prop. 1.
