    Wait for it – Seattle is going to have to sell a nearly $1B worth of levies in Feb. 2013. Not that they don’t need the capital dollars – they do – but that’s a lot of money. Luckily, it comes early in the levy cycle of 14 levies in either Seattle or King County. Some entity is going to hit the wall that is voter fatigue.
