Seattle’s next generation needs you to choose a leader who has all of us in mind. A leader who understands what we’re doing right and what we’re doing wrong. A leader who can bring us the changes we need to get the future we deserve. I am that leader.
Disjointed incrementalism and single-issue governance are not working. We cannot continue to cater to the priorities of special interest groups at the expense of the rest of the City’s well being.
There is a path forward out of this problem: Unfollow the Money.
I am a grassroots candidate. In 2009 when I ran for Seattle School Board, I raised $5K in cash and got 70,000 votes. I learned from that experience that it is possible to go directly to you, the voter, for your vote. I am not owned by any groups so I can represent you, your family, your business, your neighbors and your community.
As mayor, I will take Seattle City Hall back from lobbyists and special interests. I will get the big picture and the details right, the first time.
My policies will favor safety, children, prevention, diversity, maintenance and responsibility.
I am for continuous improvement of systems, not expensive bandaids to treat symptoms.
The budget is the ultimate policy document. You’d be unhappy to know about all I’ve discovered while combing through it. I can identify and fix all of the structural budget problems and put our city on a solid foundation for the future.
I’m a fiscally responsible Democrat with 25 years of experience in planning, design and business. I have a strong skill set when it comes to analyzing problems, creating solutions and bringing people together to move forward.
I am the only candidate putting real ideas out there. For instance, let’s hold on to the spectacular view we have from the Viaduct. As mayor, I would preserve the upper deck, add seismic reinforcement and make it the world’s finest elevated park. From Pike Market to Pioneer Square, Seattle would have a successful elevated public park, just like NYC, Paris and Chicago.
I’ve been paying attention to the issues, our neighborhoods, Seattle Public Schools and the City of Seattle for 20 years.
