SEATTLE – Council President Tim Burgess released the following statement this evening after reviewing the election night results:
“Seattle voters took a strong step toward universal, high-quality, voluntary and affordable preschool for our kids.
“The evidence is clear. High-quality preschool changes lives, and I believe it will change our city.
