  • Hanan Amer is running for Auburn City Council, Position 7, seeking to replace retiring Council member Bob Baggett. With a background as a chemist at Boeing, Amer has demonstrated a strong commitment to community service by volunteering at various local organizations such as the food bank, libraries, and Girl Scouts of Western Washington. Amer's involvement also extends to assisting with tax preparation through United Way of King County.

    Endorsed by progressive former state senator Mona Das and the 47th Legislative District Democrats, Amer is dedicated to empowering and engaging community members. Her progressive platform centers around key issues such as reducing homelessness, addressing climate change, and tackling the drug epidemic.

    Amer advocates for the creation of more affordable housing in Auburn to provide safe and permanent shelter for the over 300 people experiencing homelessness in the area. She also supports increased access to mental health services to meet the needs of the community. In her efforts to combat climate change, Amer emphasizes investing in expanded public transportation to reduce carbon emissions and pollution.

    Taking a comprehensive approach to the drug epidemic, Amer proposes the establishment of a safe injection site, offering a medically supervised environment for individuals struggling with addiction to seek help. Additionally, she aims to increase assistance for those suffering from opioid addiction, aiming to reduce overdose deaths.

    Amer faces two opponents in this race: Brian Lott and Ofa Langi. Lott is running on a conservative platform, with a main priority of prioritizing law enforcement and conducting sweeps of homeless encampments - an expensive and harmful policy that doesn't address the root causes of homelessness. We know what keeps us safe: living in communities where people of every color and background have fair wages, great schools, and affordable healthcare. Instead, Lott wants to label everyone without a home a criminal by making homelessness itself a crime, and telling them that they are "no longer welcome in Auburn" if they don't accept services - all without strengthening the social safety net, addressing affordable housing, or any of the long term efforts that are actually needed to prevent or solve the issue.

    The third candidate in this race is Ofa Langi, who recently moved to Auburn in 2020 and serves as a pastor at the local Adventist Church. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Langi played a role in organizing COVID testing and food distribution efforts from the church parking lot. 

    As of early July, Langi's campaign appears to be inactive. He does not have a campaign website, a presence on social media platforms, an official King County voters guide statement, or any reported funds raised.

    Hanan Amer brings a progressive vision and a strong record of community service, she is the best choice for Auburn City Council, Position 7.

Dependiendo de donde viva, usted podría tener una de las siguientes medidas sometidas a votación en su boleta.

  • 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.

Otros Candidatos

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.

  • Robyn Mulenga is running for re-election to Auburn City Council, Position 5. Before her election to the council, she was the District 2 director of the Auburn School Board for four years. During her time on the school board, Mulenga helped increased funding for two new elementary schools and six replacement schools. She also helped introduce racial equity policies to close the opportunity gap and ensure all students can thrive. 

    Mulenga’s city council platform is focusing on reducing homelessness and its impacts. During her first term in office, Mulenga voted against an ordinance that would have criminalized homelessness by subjecting people experiencing homelessness to a citation instead of a fine. This would have resulted in people getting up to 90 days in jail rather than the commonsense solutions of mental health services and affordable housing that Auburn needs. By voting to raise revenues through the business and occupation tax (B&O), Mulenga worked to ensure Auburn will have extra resources to tackle these underlying causes of homelessness. Finally, Mulenga sought to lower permit and development fees for lower-income households to improve housing affordability in Auburn. 

    Mulenga faces two opponents: Adeeb Altallal and Clinton Taylor. Altallal is a real estate agent with a bachelor's degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering. He also holds a position as a utilities engineer in the city of Tukwila. He states he is running for council to advocate for change and to make sure everyone’s voice is heard.

    Altallal’s campaign priorities are prioritizing small businesses downtown instead of residential units, increasing the size of the city’s pool, and funding the construction of a new community center. Altallal’s platform still lacks detail on how he is going to accomplish any of his priorities, or what his solutions would be to any other issues facing Auburn.

    Clinton Taylor is the third candidate running for Auburn City Council, Position 5. Taylor is the CEO and founder of Your Money Matters, a financial mentorship program. He is also a board member of the Auburn Public School Foundation. As of early July, Taylor is not running an active campaign. Taylor has no campaign website, raised no funds, and his campaign has no social media presence.

    Mulenga is the best choice in this race because of her progressive record in the city council and her public service and experience.
