Northwest Voices

Seattle Times letters to the editor

March 27, 2013 at 4:03 PM

Seattle’s job boom not a product of conservative thinking

Seattle is successful economically and culturally

Scott Santos believes that if only Seattle had lower taxes and was more Red State-like we’d do even better economically [“Upturn in spite of liberal politics,” Northwest Voices, March 27].

Well, Mr. Santos, beliefs are not facts, no matter how tightly you hold to them. The facts do say that for a large city, Seattle not only does well on the jobs front, but has among the highest literacy rates, best arts scenes and lowest crimes rates and in general is one of the most livable cities in the country.

I think I’ll stick with paying a bit more in taxes and living in a more liberal-thinking community, thank you.

–Paul Gutowski, Seattle
