Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website. I was elected by working people in Seattle to be a voice for raising the minimum wage, on affordable housing, and on taxing the rich for public transportation and public education.
While big business posted record profits last year, working people in Seattle face unaffordable housing, low wages, slashed social services, and high taxes.
As a city councilmember, I will use my position to help build, unite, and give political voice to the struggles of low-paid workers, youth, people of color, and all those who are shut out by the political machine tailored to protect the interests of the big corporations and the wealthy elite.
Together, we can make 2014 the year of $15 an hour!
We live in one of the richest cities in the richest nation on earth. There is no shortage of resources. The current economic and political system has given working people recession, unemployment, underemployment, and homelessness. Another world is both possible and necessary, but working people and the 99% will need to organize to win it!
