It has been an honor to serve on this Seattle City Council as the first Latina elected citywide in 2015. Que siga la lucha! -Lorena /9
Over the next several weeks, I will focus on restoration and reflection with my closest friends and family as I explore the various options available for my next chapter of leadership and service! /8
my scheduler, Maria Beltran; and to my past staff, Orlando Cano, Genevieve Jones, Cori Simmons, and Roxana Gomez along with so many work study interns: THANK YOU! Your dedication to public service is the gold standard & I was an effective legislator b/c of your hard work. /7
To my staff - most w/me since my first term - for their tremendous efforts advancing budgets and legislation to meet the many challenges we have in our city: my chief of staff, Brianna Thomas; my deputy chief of staff, Cody Reiter; my senior policy advisor, Vy Nguyen; /6
All of this was doable because of our collaborative work every day to realize a more just and equitable Seattle for all. We centered racial justice in our work and have delivered innovative programs and funding to bolster the resilience of our community. /5
reframing the conversation and taking action on police reform and accountability, strengthening climate resiliency strategies, protecting tenants, workers, and small businesses during the pandemic, providing relief to thousands of people during this pandemic, and more. /4
Some of the policy wins from the last 6 years: paid family leave, expanding early learning & childcare, fighting for dignity of workers, funding legal aid for immigrants and DACA recipients, defending our democracy from foreign influence, passing progressive revenue, /3
and many public servants across local, state, and federal government over my more than six years of service at the City of Seattle. Over the last six years, we made meaningful progress for workers, children and immigrants across Seattle! /2
Tonight, at midnight, I will end my second term on the Seattle City Council as your Position 9, citywide councilmember. It has been a true honor and pleasure to have worked with so many advocates, neighbors, small business owners, non-profit leaders, impacted individuals, /1
