Lillian Ortiz-Self spoke. Large number of elected officials there."
In a news relese, Kphl-Welles said "We’re less than three months away from the general election, which means that now is the time to get involved in our campaign if you haven’t already. I’m spending lots of time talking with constituents who are telling me they share my priorities for our region.
Alleviating homelessness and investing in affordable housing, transit, public health and child care.
Protecting Puget Sound and our orcas from toxins and dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Addressing equity and social justice and public health issues, including domestic and gender violence, gun violence and the need for increased drug and mental health treatment."
