Seattle, tomorrow is the last day to mail in your ballot! I’m thrilled to be supporting these amazing progressives running up and down the ballot ⬇️

I’m voting @MLorenaGonzalez for Seattle Mayor because I’ve seen firsthand the results of her public service, inspirational drive, and nonstop dedication to delivering for ALL of our communities in Seattle.

I endorsed @TeresaCMosqueda for City Council, Position 8 because she knows how to get big things done—from passing progressive revenue to the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, hazard pay for grocery workers, and much more. She'll fight for the equitable recovery we need.

I support @NikkitaOliver for City Council Position 9 because they have a strong track record as a community organizer, with creative solutions to bring us closer to achieving racial, social, and economic justice.

.@hamdiforport is a proven leader and problem solver, who I've worked alongside for over 10 years. We need her voice on the Port now more than ever, as we try to move toward an equitable COVID-19 recovery. I know she'll listen to and address our community's needs.

.@HasegawaForPort understands the role that the Port of Seattle plays in tackling the crises we face. She always prioritizes everyday people and centers the communities affected most by policy. We're in a fight for our future, and with Toshiko leading the way, we can win it.

As climate change devastates vulnerable communities, we need more environmental justice champions like @ryancalkinsSEA everywhere. I'm endorsing his re-election because he listens to community needs and knows exactly how to accelerate the Port's response to the climate crisis.

Be sure to drop off your ballot by 8 PM tomorrow or get it postmarked by tomorrow!

Last push for votes from Seattle mayoral candidates

SEATTLE – A last-minute push for votes heading into Election Day on Tuesday had both Seattle mayoral candidates out speaking with the public on Sunday. Public safety and homelessness are some of the most important issues heading into the election and both are connected to the city’s parks, which is why both candidates probably spent some time at public parks.

Thank you to the more than 900 community members who spoke out against this false and vile attack. Your voices made the difference – racism has no place in our city’s politics. The truth is that this ad never should have run in the first place. Full stop.

BREAKING: @MLorenaGonzalez is pulling her controversial TV ad against @bruceforseattle after complaints it was racist. Says campaign “is not renewing” ad for final week of campaign. #waelex Background:

Black leaders call on Seattle mayoral candidate M. Lorena González to pull ‘racist’ ad saying Bruce Harrell sided with sex abusers

With a little over a week remaining before votes are counted, Seattle’s mayoral race exploded into vitriol Saturday as rivals Bruce Harrell and M. Lorena González traded accusations of racism and enabling sexual abusers.

In video message, Gonzalez apologizes for putting white rape survivor in ad “I am sorry we did not work harder to center the voice of a sexual assault survivor from our community of color who was also willing to tell their story” story”

Says she will continue to fight for victims of sexual violence and says Harrell’s record remains troubling.

Originally tweeted by Jim Brunner 👹 (@Jim_Brunner) on October 26, 2021.

The intense community outpouring this false and racist commercial sparked speaks to the pain it brought not just to the Black community, but to our entire city. The damage done by these ads and mailers cannot be erased, but neither can the strength and resolve of our city.

We can, we must, and we will reject hate and divisive politics. Seattle is calling out for unity. That’s why I’m running: To bring our city together so we can truly make progress on the challenges we face.
