“Seattle voters want a City Council that gets back to basics,” said Markham McIntyre, executive director of CASE. “These candidates have the compassionate and results-driven approach we need to make progress on challenges like homelessness, transportation, and public safety.”
“Seattle needs elected leaders who are trustworthy and effective,” said Marilyn Strickland, president and CEO of the Seattle Metro Chamber. “As a former mayor, I know that serving in elected office requires engaging in constructive dialogue and making tough decisions. It’s not about ideological purity or echo-chamber politics. It’s about delivering effective results for the city and neighborhoods you serve.”
Recent polling shows 52 percent of Seattle voters disapprove of the job the Council is doing and 56 percent distrust the Council.
“This is a change election,” said McIntyre. “Our endorsed candidates offer a different path from the status quo policies and approach of the current Council.”
CASE is made up of businesses of all sizes and types across the region. CASE is focused on helping elect candidates who will restore trust with voters, deliver results on key issues, and represent their districts.
