I am very excited about my endorsers — an amazing mix of community activists, plus leading advocates for affordable housing, the environment, transportation, and social justice, and Seattle citizens from all realms of the political spectrum (from very liberal to conservative minded) that care about what is happening to our city.

My campaign is all about making sure Seattle’s growth works for all of us.  If that’s a value you share, I hope you’ll join our team.

“Did you know my friend Bill Bradburd is running for Seattle City Council? Might want to pay attention to him… he’s more radical (in a good way) than his opponent for the citywide open seat.”
