The King County Elections Canvassing Board will meet at 1pm today to certify the recount in the District 1 race. I congratulate Lisa Herbold on her election win to represent District 1 on the Seattle City Council and wish her the best in her new role. This was a very hard fought campaign as demonstrated by the extremely close election results. I am immensely grateful to the campaign volunteers and supporters who have stood with me throughout this prolonged election. It has been a privilege to be a candidate to represent West Seattle and South Park and I will continue to be engaged in our community in my professional and personal life. I have always been proud to be a part of this community and I am all the more so after this campaign. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less

Today is the day! 8 months of campaigning for the privilege to represent District 1 ends and my team sprinted across the finish. Words really cannot express my gratitude for the volunteers and campaign team who supported me doorbelling, phone banking, hosting fundraisers and meet and greets, providing laughs and fun, sign waving, and generally just being fantastic! I am forever grateful to have shared this experience with all of you. To those who haven’t yet – VOTE! ... See MoreSee Less

We have a moral obligation as a community to step up and take legislative action to address our homelessness crisis. I applaud Mayor Murray and King County Executive Constantine for today's action proclaiming a state of emergency. All Home, shelter organizations and nonprofits work tirelessly to prevent homelessness and provide resources to our at-risk and homeless populations. But they can't do it alone. We must have a robust regional and collaborative approach.

As a city councilmember, I will work on effective ways to partner with other municipalities, the state and federal governments to address affordable housing, better financial support for mental health services, and providing shelter and housing for all of our residents.
