Economy - Casey Sixkiller

  • Reliable Income Supporting Equity (R.I.S.E.) program will build on lessons learned from supporting families throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to pilot the largest guaranteed basic income program in the nation.
  • We need to do more to help small businesses so they can move beyond surviving to thriving. This includes small business stabilization grants, B&O tax relief, and other supports to help get businesses reopened and hiring.
  • Will expand the number of city-funded childcare centers and limit co-pays to seven percent of household income so working families can continue to invest in their family’s future.
  • Need to lean into the green economy and build pipelines, in partnership with labor, to bring the next generation of our workforce into good paying jobs that literally are fueling Seattle’s transition to carbon neutral buildings and infrastructure.
