Tim Burgess

Councilmember Tim Burgess has been sworn in as the Mayor of Seattle. Visit the Clerk's site for more information.

Welcome. Thank you for your interest in City government.

I have had many jobs in my life - radio journalist, Seattle police officer and detective, global anti-poverty worker, small business owner - but serving as a city councilmember for my lifelong home is by far the most fulfilling. At a time when we witness dysfunctional politics at the state and federal levels, local governments can lead the way with a collaborative approach, smart policies and evidence-based solutions.

My staff and I are here to serve you, answer your questions or help you navigate the City's bureaucracy. Please let us know how we can help you.
