I learn a lot seeing our city through the lens of children. Young Mikaal came with his mom Naureen Ali to a house party in Blue Ridge. After he listened to my pitch and the Q&A, I asked him what he thought. He beamed at me with a twinkle in his eyes and said, “I hope you win.” I wanted to know what he took away from my talk so I asked why he felt that way. He replied: “People need homes.” People do. And Seattle can’t solve homelessness in a silo. I’m committed to building more permanent supportive housing for people who are chronically homeless by working constructively with all stakeholders across our region and state. This will be a priority. We can do better. ... See MoreSee Less

**PLEASE READ**A few months ago, I was working a detail in Capital Hill where I met Linda Simpson. Linda and I hit it off from the get go due to her charismatic and friendly personality. After a few minutes, Linda began telling me that she was a retired police officer from Wyoming who started her career in the 70’s. In 1980, she became work partners with Jeri who was the first EVER female patrol officer in the State of Wyoming. Jeri and Linda went on to get married and in 1994, Linda underwent sex reassignment surgery in Montreal (Canada). Yes, a trans police officer, in the 90’s, and IN Wyoming! The police department and city were supportive of Linda and after an honorable 24 year career, she retired in 1996. Linda and Jeri are still happily married and have 3 children together. Linda still remains active with different police organizations and works with TCOPS, a non-profit organization that provides supportive services for trans police officers. AMAZING! This is why we live in the greatest city in the world! A true pioneer in the trans community. 🏳️‍🌈 #Pride #Transgender #Trans #Seattle #Prideseattle #Community Linda Simpson ... See MoreSee Less

We are talking about how good climate policy is good transit policy and good housing policy. Seattle is primed to lead on this issue. We just need an advocate on the council to carry it forward. I’m ready to be that advocate! ... See MoreSee Less
