    Just came from the forum. Wow! First time hearing the candidates (I chose early on one of the other candidates, so I didn’t check into Saka or Costa). Again I’ll say wow! Rob Saka is the real deal. His response to tech equity blew me away. From foster care and free school lunch (blue paper punch card! I had one too!), to serving in the military, receiving his law degree, and living the American dream… success without forgetting where he came from.  We need someone like this on the council. Thank you West Seattle Blog for hosting this, and to introducing us to someone like Rob Saka. Well done!

Sorry, comment time is over.
