On October 14, we will be hosting at our downtown Seattle office (1201 Third Ave., Ste. 2200) a debate on Initiative 1098, which would impose an income tax on Washington residents. The potential economic impacts of Initiative 1098 are hotly debated. If you are interested in reading the text of Initiative 1098, a copy of the initiative is embedded via Scribd below.
We are honored to host Bill Gates, Sr. who will be arguing the pro side, and Matt McIlwain, from Madrona Venture Partners, who will be arguing against the initiative.
We hope you can join us for what we think is going to be a very lively debate, including audience Q&A and reception.
Register for the event at the WTIA website and we look forward to seeing you.
