"Bruce Harrell will be a Mayor committed to unity, recovery, and building a strong, equitable future for all. I've known Bruce for decades as a passionate advocate for education and opportunity, for racial and economic justice, and as a voice for vulnerable and marginalized communities. He is the kind of compassionate, pragmatic progressive leader Seattle needs now, more than ever."
"At this time in our changing and divided City, we need Bruce Harrell to help us heal, and lead the way forward. Just as I worked to center our city policies around kids and the future, Bruce is uniquely positioned to build unity around shared values and help every child – and family – get the opportunity and future they deserve. We need his proven experience, deep commitment to healthy families, and steadfast voice for racial justice in the office of Seattle Mayor.”
Bruce Harrell is the leader Seattle needs to unite around immediate response to the homelessness crisis and take needed steps toward changing the culture at the Seattle Police Department. I look forward to partnering with Bruce to make sure Seattle gets needed resources and support for housing and transportation, transit and climate action. Please join me in support of Bruce Harrell for Mayor.
"We learned over the past several years that the best way to fight racism and stereotypes is to elect leaders who look like America, give young people role models and hope, and are in positions of leadership to fight back for all of us. Bruce Harrell is the mayor Seattle needs at this moment in our national reckoning with structural racism."
“Bruce will be an excellent mayor because he has the personal experience and proven record to protect our communities – and unite Seattle around shared values of inclusion and opportunity. I have known Bruce for years as a leader with passion, integrity, and a deep commitment to the AAPI and all marginalized communities.”
“Asian-owned businesses were particularly hard hit over the past year, once the former President began scapegoating and mocking the Asian community. I know Bruce will work overtime to build a dialogue of support, and work tirelessly to end the violence and intimidation in our communities.”
“Bruce Harrell is the mayor we need at this moment in our history, as we confront structural racism and push reforms that help build an equitable and just future for all. We trust Bruce to address the urgent need for police reform and accountability, expand housing and restorative programs for low income, homeless and vulnerable populations, and speak out against hate and discrimination in all forms.”
"Bruce has an unmatched record of support for Black and community of color owned businesses, and making sure we open the doors for contracting opportunities, training and mentorship, and support in tough times. As Seattle’s Mayor, Bruce will be a champion for shared priorities of equity, opportunity and prosperity across Seattle."
"Black owned small businesses were among the hardest hit in the pandemic, and Seattle is at risk of losing the next generation of Black entrepreneurs due to high startup costs and lack of capital and opportunity. I have known Bruce personally for more than three decades and believe that he will be a mayor we can count on to unite our city and build a stronger, more inclusive city where all can thrive."
