“Issues of importance to the hotel and restaurant industry include the need for effective, data-driven solutions to the region’s homelessness crisis; addressing public safety and civility issues; and accountability in city spending. Most of all, Seattle Hospitality for Progress wants what Seattle voters want; a city council which will focus on addressing the most pressing issues impacting residents in each of the seven districts and deliver results.” Seattle Hospitality for ProgressAnnouncement
“I am very excited to be endorsed by Seattle Hospitality for Progress. I have been hearing concerns from industry business owners in D1 and across Seattle that they do not feel supported, and often feel thwarted by current City Councilmembers. I will work to ensure that Seattle fosters a more business-friendly environment in which all businesses may thrive.” — Phil Tavel
