The Seattle City Council makes decisions that are highly impactful to your business. This year, every Seattle City Council seat is up for election. The general election is November 3 and each race will be very close so don’t forget to vote!

The Seattle Restaurant Alliance (SRA) – along with the Seattle Hotel Association (SHA) – support the candidates who, among other things, commit the time to understand and learn about the economic challenges facing the hospitality sector, willingly engage with the hospitality industry, and invest in the vitality of the hospitality industry and the local economy and community.

After an extensive candidate evaluation process, the SRA has endorsed the following 2015 Seattle City Council candidates for the general election:

District 1 (West Seattle): Shannon Braddock

District 2 (Southeast Seattle): Bruce Harrell

District 3 (Central Seattle & Capitol Hill): Pamela Banks

District 4 (University District): Rob Johnson

District 5 (North Seattle): Debora Juarez

District 6 (Ballard; Fremont; Green Lake; Crown Hill): Catherine Weatbrook

District 7 (Downtown; Magnolia; Queen Anne): Sally Bagshaw

At-Large, Pos. 8: Tim Burgess

Many of these candidates will need help with last minute election efforts such as door-belling, phone banking, and fundraising. We encourage you to engage in these efforts! They are great opportunities to meet and talk with the candidates about the issues important to you and your business. Candidate contact information can be found on their individual websites.
