The Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce released the results of its September poll of Seattle voters. Not surprisingly, the top concerns of Seattleites were homelessness (57%) and public safety (45%).

Seattle voters also expressed serious concerns about the state of downtown. Poll respondents reported making fewer non-work trips into downtown. Plus, 7 of 10 do not feel safe downtown at night (a slight improvement from the previous poll).

It’s important to note that Seattle voters expressed concern about businesses in the city. Indeed, 3 of the top 7 issues “to improve quality of life” were focused on helping businesses:

#3: Helping local businesses deal with public safety concerns

#6: Addressing organized retail theft

#7: Making Seattle a good place to do business

We appreciate the hard work of the Chamber to gather and communicate information about the attitudes and concerns of Seattle residents.
