  • King County Assessor John Wilson is running unopposed for re-election. He worked as the chief deputy assessor for four years before being elected by the public to lead the office in 2015. Wilson has also worked in the county’s Department of Information Technology and in public affairs consulting. 

    In office, Wilson has focused on housing affordability, making sure our tax code is balanced, and improving the efficiency of assessor services.

  • Incumbent Julie Wise is running for her third term serving as King County Director of Elections. Wise has worked in elections since 2000 and as the county’s director since 2015. During her two terms, she has brought innovative community services to the offices that have advanced civic education and voter participation.

    Wise has led progress in the county elections office, instituting the Voter Education Fund (a public-philanthropic partnership), providing prepaid postage on ballots, introducing new language options, and adding 65 new ballot drop-off locations. Her past term included successfully navigating the storm of election misinformation and conspiracy theories about the democratic process. Wise has won numerous awards for her leadership in the office.

    Wise’s campaign reflects her continued commitment to reducing barriers to voting, protecting elections from infringement, building community trust in the accuracy of election results, and making sure every vote is counted. Her biggest priorities for a third term are continuing progressive efforts to increase accessibility while investing in security to protect voters and elections offices from intimidation.

    Republican Doug Basler is challenging Wise in this race. Basler runs a digital video and marketing services company, and he has previously run for office. His campaign platform dangerously promotes far-right fictions of election fraud that fueled the 2020 criminal conspiracy to overthrow the will of the people. Basler has also previously questioned the integrity of county elections, and even participated in lawsuits aimed at overturning the function of our democratic institutions. 

    King County voters deserve an elections director who is focused on delivering quality and accurate services rather than someone who wants to overturn our votes and stoke chaos in order to elevate their position and that of their party. Julie Wise deserves re-election for another term as King County Director of Elections to continue bringing strong leadership to the office.

  • Sam Cho is running unopposed for re-election for Seattle Port Commissioner, Position 2. Before his election in 2019, he served on Gov. Jay Inslee’s Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs and previously worked on trade issues for a member of Congress. Aside from his work on the commission, Cho also serves on the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce and the Washington Council on International Trade.

    Cho has been a standout on the commission in his first term. When Cho became commission president in 2022, he was the first Asian American to serve in the role in port history. As the son of South Korean immigrants and a fluent Korean speaker, Cho has led several international trade efforts with Korea, including creating a green trade corridor with the Port of Busan and working with Hyundai and KIA to make the Port of Seattle the exclusive importer of their cars.

  • Incumbent Fred Felleman is an environmental consultant and marine biologist. He is running for re-election to the Seattle Port Commission, Position 5, as the senior member of the commission, having served since 2016. With his science background, Felleman has pledged to continue supporting environmentally friendly reforms at the port.

    As commissioner, Felleman has focused on fighting climate change and increasing the port's green energy jobs. He has been a leader on the commission when it comes to protecting orcas, publicly opposing the dangerous Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline, and advocating for well-paying jobs. Elected commission president in 2021, he has recently supported more efficient and greener policies at the port to reduce pollution, including adding solar panels to the Fishermen's Terminal's net shed and powering new docks so ships don't have to idle and burn additional fuel. Felleman often supports social causes as well, including condemning Trump's Muslim ban and government agencies’ response at the airport, as well as welcoming Ukrainian refugees, with Washington hosting 16,000 refugees, the third most among U.S. states.

    Challenging Felleman is Jesse Tam, the managing director for Mega Pacific Investments, a strategic development consulting firm. He is a former parks commissioner for the city of Newcastle, as well as past president and current board director for the Greater Seattle Chinese Chamber of Commerce, among other roles. 

    Tam states that he's running to use his business experience to source well-paying union jobs, negotiate business deals, and lead on climate change. While we agree with Tam's listed priorities, Felleman has been an excellent environmental advocate and scientific mind on the board, and we don't see a strong case for how Tam would bring progressive change to the port. 

    Felleman has earned your vote for re-election to the Port of Seattle, Position #5.

  • Roisin O’Farrell is running to retain Position 2 on the Sammamish City Council. O’Farrell was first appointed to the council in July 2022 to fill a vacancy left by Christie Malchow. She currently works as a neighborhood coordinator for the Sammamish Issaquah Food Project and is a board member for the Sammamish YMCA. Previously, O’Farrell served on the city’s planning commission.

    O’Farrell herself is an immigrant and she wants to continue making Sammamish an inclusive community where all residents can thrive. O’Farrell has a strong vision for environmental stewardship in the city, such as creating a Climate Action Plan by the end of 2023, establishing Sammamish as a Tree City, reviving the freshwater Kokanee salmon population, and preserving local greenery. She also wants to create a teen center in Sammamish and maintain the city's senior programming to provide ongoing mental health support in the community. Finally, she wants to develop a comprehensive transit plan to meet the needs of the rapidly growing city.

    The other candidate in this race is Uma Coimbature. Before taking an early retirement to focus on public service, Coimbature worked at Microsoft. Originally from India, she holds two business degrees with expertise in marketing and international business. Coimbature lacks a detailed campaign platform but lists empowering communities and preserving the environment as priorities.

    We recommend Roisin O’Farrell in this race because of her strong endorsements and clear, inclusive vision for Sammamish.

Gupta is a restoration and native plant steward with the Washington Native Plant Society. He has also served on both the city’s parks commission and on the Sammamish Friends board as president.

    Gupta is running on a sustainability platform with three major priorities: transportation, the environment, and public revenue.

If elected, he also wants to leverage his expertise in environmental stewardship to ensure a green future for the city, particularly through the Climate Action Plan.

Outside of public service, she works as a principal program manager at Microsoft and has been active in the community, including serving as the PTA president and on the board of the Eastlake Little League. 

    In her previous term, Stuart was a strong voice for sustainable development and environmental stewardship.

Additionally, she wants to foster more inclusion and belonging in the city and build greater trust between residents and the council.

If elected, Markert wants to restrict funding for our district while prioritizing the vague concept of safety. His campaign has some fear-mongering language and does not represent the needs of Lake Washington students, staff, or families.

    We recommend Eric Laliberte in this race because of his progressive track record and strong endorsements.

  • Apoyadas Por: King County Democrats
  • We believe Lindsey Yocum is the best choice for Lake Washington School Board Director from District 5 based on her impressive endorsements from our progressive partners and trusted community leaders. She currently works as the director of a non-profit sustainable farm and services as the PTA co-president for the Environmental and Adventure School. 

    She is a former teacher in the district who is passionate about providing opportunities for students with special needs. If elected, she would also work to improve communications and transparency between the board and parents and students. She also wants to find ways to involve students in identifying solutions to the challenges facing the district. 

    Yocum's opponent, Janel Schermerhorn, has also earned some endorsements from local Democrats and advocacy groups. However, Yocum's experience in the classroom and advocating for students with special needs would be a welcome addition to the Lake Washington School District Board of Directors. 

    We recommend Lindsey Yocum for District 5.
