OCTOBER 22, 2015 Is there something in the water in Seattle?! This week features Seattle City Councilmember Nick Licata, who documented his experiment of a progressive democrat joining the right-wing organization, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Licata has witnessed remarkable events in Seattle during his tenure in office beginning in 1997. Find out what's going on in Seattle, a city firmly planted in grassroots organizing, and about ALEC's latest stunt, the American City County Exchange (ACCE). Nick Licata is a Seattle City Council Member currently serving his 5th term; he was first elected in 1997. A former City Council President, Nick currently chairs the Council's Budget Committee, and the Finance and Culture Committee. In the past, he has chaired several committees overseeing public safety, parks, human services, and housing -- beginning them all with a local poet's reading or an excerpt from a local film. Nick has written and sponsored legislation establishing a lobbyist registration program, paid sick and safe leave, city-wide rental inspection program, and a capital improvement fund for cultural organizations. In 2012, he was named by The Nation Magazine as progressive municipal official of the year. He founded the National League of Cities' Large Cities Council and co-founded Local Progress, the national municipal policy network, for which he currently serves as board chair.
