Council President Clark Statement on the Race for Mayor of Seattle
SEATTLE -- Council President Sally J. Clark issued the following statement regarding the race for Mayor of Seattle:
"Following four years of service to our city, Mayor McGinn's legacy is that of a passionate advocate who worked hard to make Seattle more livable. From social justice to environmental sustainability, technology to transportation, Mike leaves behind an indelible mark on our town. I wish him well in his next endeavor, and thank him for his commitment to our community.
Moving forward, Senator Murray's arrival signals that Seattle wants a new style of leadership. Our City continues to struggle with issues of public safety and transit, parks and urban planning, economic resiliency and civil rights. I'm looking forward to working with an executive who will help us manage these issues, and this municipality, through the months ahead and years to come."
