Opportunity for All Coalition Statement on Amazon HQ2

Statement from Matt McIlwain, Opportunity for All Coalition:
 

“We recognize there are many factors that went in to Amazon’s decision, but the Seattle City Council’s focus on dividing the pie of economic opportunity rather than growing the pie for the city and the region is undoubtedly among them. One only needs to look at the Amazon HQ2 RFP which states  “A stable & business-friendly environment & tax structure will be high-priority” to understand the alignment Amazon is looking for with the state and local government for their new headquarters.”
