A City That Fosters and Delivers Innovation

A safe, vibrant, affordable, interconnected city for all is the goal of my administration, and I hope to achieve these goals by harnessing the kind of innovation and creativity that has long-defined our great city.  

This means using data to drive the most efficient use of resources, make the best investments, and deliver the best outcomes for the residents of Seattle. It means replicating what has been successful elsewhere, discontinuing what is not producing the desired results, and having the energy, encouragement and initiative to generate new solutions to experiment with and see what's truly possible.

It means harnessing the great asset that is our region's high-tech community and applying information technology in efficient and exciting new ways. And it means engaging that community to foster new synergies, new partnerships and new ventures.
