  • Corina Pfeil is running for re-election to Kenmore City Council, Position 7. Pfeil was first elected to the council in 2019, and sits on the National League of Cities Human Development Committee and Eastside Pride PNW. 

    During her time on the council, Pfeil has consistently championed the rights of tenants. Being the sole renter among the council members, Pfeil possesses a deep understanding of the challenges faced by this expanding demographic amidst escalating homeownership costs. In March 2022, Pfeil voted in favor of various regulations aimed at safeguarding tenants' rights. 

    If re-elected, Pfeil's commitment remains focused on reducing and eliminating disparities affecting the LGBTQ+ community, seniors, and people with disabilities, as well as promoting diversity, equity, belonging, and inclusion practices. Pfeil strives to bridge opportunity gaps and ensure equal treatment for all individuals and groups within the community. However, she has only received the endorsement of one of her colleagues, which raises questions about her ability to work together to pass legislation. Pfeil is a good choice for voters looking for an unapologetic progressive voice on the council.

  • VOTO APPROVED

    Vote YES for Veterans and Seniors!

  • King County Proposition 1 would extend the Veterans, Seniors, and Human Services Levy. The levy provides funding for public programs in areas such as employment, behavioral health treatment, and housing, and helps connect those resources to seniors, veterans, service members, and military families who need them. 

    First passed in 2006, the original levy only addressed the needs of our community members who have served in the armed forces; however, in 2017, voters approved an updated levy to include our senior neighbors. In the last five years, the levy has helped reduce veteran homelessness by 40 percent, funded 39 senior centers across King County, built more than 200 units of affordable housing for veterans and their families, and launched a 24-hour, multilingual domestic violence hotline. If approved this year, the levy would ensure continued funding for the essential services it has already been delivering and allow the county to respond to the ongoing effects of the pandemic and economic downturn. 

    We all benefit when our local government cares for our neighbors. The Veterans, Seniors, and Human Services levy is a crucial part of our shared security net. Vote "Approved" on King County Proposition 1.

  • Incumbent Fred Felleman is an environmental consultant and marine biologist. He is running for re-election to the Seattle Port Commission, Position 5 as the senior member of the commission, having served since 2016. With his science background, Felleman has pledged to continue supporting environmentally friendly reforms at the port.

    In his time as commissioner, Felleman has focused on fighting climate change and increasing the port's green energy jobs. He has been a leader on the commission when it comes to protecting orcas, publicly opposing the dangerous Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline, and advocating for well-paying jobs. Elected commission president in 2021, he has recently supported more efficient and greener policies at the port to reduce pollution, including adding solar panels to Fishermen's Terminal's net shed and powering new docks so that ships don't have to idle and burn additional fuel.

    Felleman often supports social causes as well, including condemning Trump's Muslim ban and government agencies’ response at the airport, as well as welcoming Ukranian refugees, with Washington hosting 16,000 refugees, the third most of any state in the U.S.

    Felleman has earned your vote for Port of Seatle, Position #5.

Jesse Tam is the managing director for Mega Pacific Investments, a strategic development consulting firm. He is a former parks commissioner for the city of Newcastle, as well as past president and current board director for the Greater Seattle Chinese Chamber of Commerce, among other roles.

Tam states that he's running to use his business experience to source well-paying union jobs, negotiate business deals, and lead on climate change. While we agree with Tam's listed priorities, Felleman has been an excellent environmental advocate and scientific mind on the board, and we don't see a strong case for how Tam would bring progressive change to the port.

Aaron Todd is the CEO of Airsafe, a site that indexes information on airline safety and flight information for travelers. A former Boeing safety engineer and a U.S. Air Force veteran, Todd has not presented any policy reasons on why he should replace Felleman's deep expertise on the commission.

There are two other candidates in this race. David Baker, a local business owner, is running for re-election for Position 5 on the Kenmore City Council. He has served as a council member since 2003, and has also held the position of mayor during his 20-year tenure. Additionally, Baker sits on a number of local and regional committees, most notably the Sound Transit Board.

Baker is known for his support of transportation and transit development. He is recognized for his efforts in organizing and supporting enhancements to the bus rapid transport system along the 522 Route corridor in Kenmore. While Baker supports the idea of housing near transit sites, he has sometimes taken a more cautious approach when it comes to building more housing. It is crucial to build homes across the city, including increasing density, in order to ensure every resident can afford a roof over their head. Baker is a moderate voice on the council with a great deal of institutional knowledge about Kenmore.

Despite his previous run for council in 2013, where he aimed to address traffic congestion and business development, Mark Prince's current campaign for Position 5 lacks specific policies. A manufacturing supervisor and packing engineer, Prince brings limited community experience to the table and does not seem to be running a competitive campaign. His voter's pamphlet statement explicitly opposes increasing density, which is an essential step toward improving housing affordability in Kenmore. Mark Prince is not a progressive choice in this race.

  • Han Tran, an electrical engineer, is running for Northshore School Board, Director District 3 to replace David Cogan, who is not seeking re-election. Tran is an active community advocate, previously running for Bothell City Council in 2021 on a strong progressive platform, participating on the school district’s Ethnic Studies Work Team, and serving as a Washington Human Rights Commissioner.

    As an immigrant and a working mother to Northshore district students, Tran wants to champion equity and inclusion, empower educators, and bring a holistic and progressive approach to addressing the district’s needs. She wants to work to close opportunity gaps by implementing targeted academic support, culturally responsive teaching, and accountability metrics. The rest of her campaign priorities are equally detailed and community-centric, and she has received an impressive list of progressive endorsements in this race.

    Tran faces two challengers, Chris Cazares and Myriam Juritz, for the school district director seat. Chris Cazares is a member of the US Air Force and a lawyer who is running on a vague and thin platform based on the values of communication and representation. His campaign website lacks campaign information as of mid-July.

    Myriam Juritz is a substitute teacher in the Northshore school district and she serves on the board of the Northshore Schools Foundation. Juritz has shared a campaign platform that emphasizes improving academic excellence and student health, both mental and physical. She is an immigrant and credits her upbringing in political unrest as motivating her to run for local government to ensure that community needs are met. However, her platform is not as detailed nor as progressive Tran’s.
