I’m a pragmatic, results-oriented person, and my mission is to Save Seattle;
to restore and enhance safety and prosperity for all
Seattle taxpayers. I believe our city’s culture is under threat, and that the path forward must be based on all citizens having and voicing their visions of our shared future. Seattle cannot move forward unless the influence of powerful special interests is reduced, and its leaders renounce corrosive identity politics. Seattle government must restore faith in its ability to efficiently match finite resources with clearly-defined, prioritized programs. Seattle was known for its beauty, the quality of life enjoyed by all of its residents and the flourishing of its commercial enterprises be they corporate, family or individually-owned.
Today, that is no longer the case. But it can be again. I have the vision, discipline, and unmatched experience needed to lead Seattle into the future built on its unique attributes: our superb natural environment, our history of inclusiveness and innovation and the talent and spirit of our citizens.
I look forward to leading this city to a new and better future.
