It truly is an honor to represent you on the City Council. I consider public service a privilege, and to say I love this City is an understatement.
Four years ago I stood before many of you and committed to build alliances. Alliances within neighborhoods, and within our downtown; with labor and businesses large and small; with other electeds in our region and within our state. We have done this and more.
Bringing people together for the common good is my North Star. Together, we are creating a new vision, a city where we can rebuild the economic security of our middle class and underscore that all are welcome here.
With that in mind, participation and civic engagement are my top priority, which is why my office has an open-door policy. I want to hear from you and I vow to work diligently on your behalf. I am committed to bringing people together and finding the common ground on the issues that face Seattle and our region. I'll strive to reach out and listen to the various sides of each issue.
The decisions we make today must be made not just for ourselves within the city borders, but for our region as a whole; and not just for today, but for generations to come. It is my sincere honor to serve as your councilmember.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and to learn more about me, my staff, and the issues we are working on. Together, we can make our great city even better.
