The Community Whip Count

Really really proud to have helped create and continue working on this amazing tool with David Coven! If you know me, you know how much I care about making things more simple for people to engage, and about naming names when it comes to the decisions of those in power.

More 43rd Graphics and Posts

Step up in The 43rd! There’s two Executive Board openings that our PCOs elect in our January meeting. There was some bittersweet updates in December. But together we reflected on the past legislative session and planned for the next. And we gained some PAC founders to help the candidates we endorsed.

Updating Our Page for Redistricting

2021 Redistricting Every 10 years, after the Census, all Districts go through what’s called “redistricting”—making new jurisdictions—due to both populations growing or shrinking and the ways in which that informs the count of elected officials. The 43rd, for example, grew by over 21,000 people. What’s at stake? Redistricting runs the risk of gerrymandering, or manufacturingContinue reading “Updating Our Page for Redistricting”

Public restrooms policy

Excerpts I wrote for mayoral candidate Andrew Grant Houston’s campaign policy proposal: …our unhoused neighbors don’t have that [“hopefully-I-make-it-home-before-I-have-to-go“] luxury, and because we don’t have publicly accessible bathrooms, we nearly incentivize further criminalizing homelessness because the City made it so people have nowhere to go. Across our whole city, we have six (6) public bathroomsContinue reading “Public restrooms policy”

Homeownership expansion policy

Excerpts I wrote for mayoral candidate Andrew Grant Houston: I am a renter, and I’ve been one my entire life. Though while Seattle is a majority-renter city, I recognize that homeownership is the fastest way to generational wealth. That history is drawn along racial lines. America, since its inception, has entrenched wealth in the abilityContinue reading “Homeownership expansion policy”
