Seattle only creates 14 of 2,000 promised jobs with federal grant 

Seattle won a $20 million federal grant in 2010 for weatherization of local homes. The grant was won primarily because Mayor Mike McGinn promised to create 2,000 new jobs in Seattle by fixing 2,000 houses. One year later, only three homes have been weatherized and only 14 jobs have been created. Maybe the feds should save our tax money for a rainy day.
