“Perseverance, diversity, commitment, compassion and loyalty, these are just some of the characteristics that make a great leader. These are but a handful of the values that embrace Seattle Mayoral candidate, Bruce Harrell. It is these attributes and much more that has major law enforcement organizations and myself, supporting Bruce’s candidacy. His commitment to community, public safety and economic prosperity of the City of Seattle make him the only outstanding candidate for Mayor and puts him far ahead of the crowd. Please join me and the men and women of the King County Corrections Guild, in supporting Bruce Harrell as Seattle’s next mayor.”
“Bruce has the right priorities for Seattle. He has a clear vision for what we need to get done and the skill to make those priorities a reality. It is time to move our city forward and make sure we include all our citizens in our success.”
“We want Seattle to be a fair and equal city. Harrell is the candidate who will find and institute changes that need to be made. As a Seattle community volunteer, I prefer Harrell as Seattle’s next mayor in the fight for gender pay equality and social justice in this region.”
Have you heard the news in the Seattle Mayor’s race? Team Harrell has been gaining momentum and shattering fundraising goals. With your help, the campaign has had its most successful month yet! On Tuesday, you might have seen the media reports showing that our campaign reported raising more than any other candidate during the last reporting period: an eye-popping $56,510. And today, we’re filing our May reports, showing our campaign has raised more than $80,000 in the month of May alone. These donations came from more than 700 donors—people like you who are investing in change at City Hall and our message of One Seattle. With this growing broad support, it is evidence that our campaign is only getting stronger as we approach the August primary.CONTINUE READING →
Wow! What a remarkable 5 days. Bruce has been working hard to share his vision for Seattle and voters across the city are taking notice. These endorsements follow the initial mayoral forums in which major media accounts said Bruce “stood out from the pack” and that Bruce was at the “top of the candidates’ class.” Every day our list of supporters grows, and during the last 5 days we are proud to have been endorsed by:
Something amazing just happened. The mayoral public debates just begun and as one journalist from the Times wrote, my answers were “crisper, and less bland than those offered by rivals.” The same author gave the nod to me “for some quality moments.” The Seattle Met wrote about another one of my messages by saying, “there was no denying that City Councilmember Bruce Harrell, with his passion about social justice…(provided) the evening’s more disarming, on-point, and serious moment(s) saying, ‘I was astounded by the political cowardice that I saw from our elected leaders…when the woodcarver, John T. Williams, was tragically killed…’” The author went on to claim I “stood out from the pack last night.” The very next day at another televised public forum the headlines read, “Harrell top of candidates’ class in Garfield High Education forum.”
Below are links to the press reaction to my commitment to helping you and others achieve the pathway to success. I will continue spreading this campaign’s message about a “new beginning in Seattle” throughout the city. Please forward this post to one or two of your friends, co-workers or colleagues who you know to be registered Seattle voters.
Harrell’s applause line: takeaways from Monday mayoral debate – Seattle Times (April 30, 2013)
…But Harrell led with the response the audience craved when he declared: “The answer is simple: institutional practices!” And Harrell said he’d immediately reached out to the Seattle Women’s Commission to develop a plan to respond to the problem…Harrell also had other moments where his answers were crisper and less bland than those offered by rivals. He attacked “political cowardice” by some elected officials following the 2010 fatal shooting of woodcarver John T. Williams by a Seattle police officer. And he made the case he’d be able to represent a more diverse swath of the city, saying: “I am welcome in corporate boardrooms and churches and athletic fields and the roughest and toughest neighborhoods.”
Harrell Stands Out at First Mayoral Debate – Seattle Met (April 30, 2013)
… but there was no denying that City Council member Harrell, with his passion about social justice (he answered Douglas’ “what was the moment you decided to run?” question with perhaps the evening’s more disarming, on-point, and serious moment saying “I was astounded by the political cowardice that I saw from our elected leaders … when the woodcarver, John T. Williams, was tragically killed…”), stood out from the pack last night.
