Here in SeaTac, we're facing the same struggle communities face across our state and nation; those who are already comfortable are rewarded with more comfort, while those who are going without, continue to get squeezed. Corporate contributors and far-away developers seem to get much of the attention from our council majority while ordinary citizens, struggling small businesses, and those who are without a home see little progress on the issues that matter most to them.
Local leaders shouldn't engage in partisan warfare or enact policy to spite their own constituents. What is important is whether citizens are provided with quality, affordable, and necessary services like; business licenses, inspection services, fire protection, transportation, and a robust safety net for those who temporarily need our collective assistance.
Our council has been in the news too many times for too many of the wrong reasons and I feel like I have what it takes to bring the change we need. I'm the father of a young daughter, which is what drives my motivation to see to it that we have clean, safe, and well-equipped parks, walkable neighborhoods, and the efficient use of limited resources.
SeaTac should be a place that respects, welcomes, and strives to equally serve one and all, no matter their race, religion, income, gender, or age. Our differences make us stronger.
I'll continue my work fighting for a better quality of life for all the working people of our city and state, and more specifically for those in the hospitality industry and if elected will continue to work with employers to find the best outcomes for their staff and business.
I'll be laser-focused on ways to improve the quality of life for all who live, work, visit, and run community-minded businesses in SeaTac.
I'm looking forward to sharing more of my qualifications and views as this campaign progresses and more importantly, listening to your ideas for SeaTac. You can reach me anytime at: 206-779-7719
