Happy New Year! Today, I officially enter office with optimism and excitement. Even in these challenging times, I am energized by what we can achieve for Seattle and each other by working together and leading with our shared values.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas from the entire Harrell family! Here’s to a joyful day filled with love, friends, family, and celebration of one another and the holiday spirit that brings us all together. 🎄
I’m deeply saddened to hear of Seattle Fire Fighter Matt Runte’s passing. Matt was the kind of fire fighter we need in Seattle – a leader personally and professionally committed to his crew, city, and community. I am holding his family in my prayers. He will be greatly missed.
We lost a trailblazer and warrior in our loss of George Fleming. As he rose from Husky football stardom, worked in telecommunications, and served as a successful politician, he forged a trail of success that I followed. He never hesitated to help me, advise me, and inspire me. I was proud to be his... friend and a beneficiary of his life of service.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones! This holiday, let’s come together, celebrate with gratitude, and commit to showing kindness, love, understanding, and care toward family and neighbors – today and every day.
This #VeteransDay, let’s thank and celebrate service members and military families—past and present—who served and sacrificed for our country. It’s up to us to give back with the support and opportunity Seattle veterans need to thrive.
I will always be grateful for veterans like my... father, who served as an Air Force Airman First Class.
