    Getting onto the ballot is as easy as writing a $1200 check, and all of my fellow District 1 candidates are choosing that path. I am choosing another way. I am getting onto the Seattle City Council ballot by gathering signatures of registered D1 voters.
    I believe in being part of the solution and taking action. While candidates in this campaign are trying to obtain donors, I am out there focused on voters. Because when it comes down to it, money doesn’t fill out that bubble on the ballot, you do.
    Instead of fundraising, my energy is being spent on engaging and working with people in West Seattle and South Park. I am the co-chair of the Westwood/Roxhill/Arbor Heights Community Council, the co-chair of the West Seattle Transportation Coalition, the Delridge Rep to the City Neighborhood Council and the City Neighborhood Council Budget Committee Chair.
    With historically low voter turnout, you would think that the people I am meeting are apathetic and skeptical by this approach – and you would be right. But when I ask people to sign their name so I can get onto the ballot, it awakens something inside of them. They ask me about the process, my goals, my experience, and of course “what are you going to do” when I get to City Council. They start to engage and remember what it’s like to actually care about the discourse of change.
    It’s amazing. It’s inspiring. It’s winning.
    I will be in the Alaska Junction today, from 10:30 – 2:00 collecting signatures. It’s not a vote or an endorsement, and I don’t use your information for campaign purposes. Come sign! Grassroots democracy is good for everyone.
