Statement: For years, right-wing extremists in the state legislature have ignored Seattle’s priorities and values. It’s time to elect a leader with a proven record of building effective, progressive coalitions across a broad range of issues. That leader is Scott Forbes.

In the legislature, Scott will truly represent Seattle. He’ll fight for transportation funding and affordable housing. He’ll work not only to fully fund K12 education, but to reduce and ultimately eliminate in-state tuition at our public colleges and universities. Scott has the experience we need to ensure Seattle values triumph over extremism. Vote for Scott Forbes, Seattle's Representative!
