Alex Pedersen is running for Seattle City Council to bring your voice to City Hall and accountability to our city government.
Alex, the former legislative aide to Tim Burgess, is committed to providing the residents of District 4 with responsive and effective leadership that is accountable to all our communities: Bryant, Belvedere Terrace, Cowen Park, Eastlake, Hawthorne Hills, Inverness, Laurelhurst, Magnuson Park, Maple Leaf, Ravenna, Ravenna Springs, Roosevelt, Sand Point, the U District, University Park, View Ridge, Wallingford, Wedgwood, and Windermere.
Accountability means listening to constituents, crafting sensible and data-driven policies based on their input, being transparent about where tax dollars are invested, and delivering the basic services and positive results we deserve from our local government. No one-size-fits-all ideological agendas, no backroom deals, no spin, no money wasted. Alex will serve the people with transparency and deliver results.
When connecting with neighbors and small business owners throughout the district, Alex has listened carefully to their concerns: Although more and more money pours into City Hall, we still see tents and suffering. Children are crammed into overcrowded schools. Communities still lack sidewalks and crosswalks. Longtime residents and neighborhood businesses can no longer afford to stay. The taxes and budgets go up, but the results and livability go down.
It is time for our City Council to invest your tax dollars more effectively and strategically to produce better results for our communities. Accountability fosters affordability. Only a City Council producing fiscally responsible solutions can ensure that seniors, middle class families, and all our neighbors can afford to stay in the city we all love. Alex has the experience and credibility to deliver.
