Delivering for Our Community in 2021

Hello Neighbors!

Looking back on 2021, I want to share some ways your District 2 team delivered for the CID and South Seattle. I remain committed to serving you so we can improve community safety, close the opportunity gaps for our young people, and stop the displacement of our Black and brown neighbors. It’s been a privilege to work alongside you. We look forward to continuing the work in 2022!
