Why I'm Running

We, the people of South Seattle and the International District, want to lead a life of dignity. We want affordable childcare and public transportation so we can work. We need affordable housing and an end to displacement and gentrification so working families can live in their communities. We want equitable and quality education for our children. 

Unfortunately, Seattle has become a city ruled by lobbyists and the ultra-wealthy with easy access to power. The consequences of this are obvious. The gap between those with everything and the most vulnerable has only continued to widen despite our city’s tremendous growth. 

If I’m elected, I will serve District 2 by consistently centering communities of color, immigrant communities, religious minorities, the poor, and the working class in every decision at City Hall. I will be unwavering in my commitment to the people of my community, and I hope you’ll join me in this fight. Together we can declare our right to the city and build the future we all deserve. Vote for Tammy!
