“This is my home City Council district and I know Maren Costa will serve our district well and stand up for poor and working people across Seattle, but that’s what she’s always done,” said Rep. Jayapal. “Before I ran for office, I was an organizer myself, just like Maren is today. She has an incredible track record of bringing people together, challenging corporate power, and delivering lasting results for our community. Maren has always been a partner for progress in Seattle and I’m proud to support her progressive campaign that rejects corporate PAC money and will defeat the big special interest money that's flooding city council races across the city.”

Costa is good on the issues. She supports the most progressive growth plan, she wants people to come in contact with cops as infrequently as possible, she would propose a local capital gains tax, and she plans to take money from the sweeps budget and put it toward affordable housing. Failing to put Costa in this seat means we’ll likely get none of that. 
"Costa is now running to bring her tenacity and experience in management to city hall.... Costa's experience managing million-dollar budgets and successfully advocating for corporate climate action makes her stand out as a progressive among the top candidates in the district.

Her values and clear support for equitable climate policy, labor rights, and public transportation provide her with a solid framework through which to evaluate decisions.... Her opponents do not come close to matching her qualifications or vision."

Endorse Maren

Thanks for submitting!

“Too many politicians are afraid to stand up to corporations, even when they know it’s the right thing to do. That’s not Maren Costa. She fought back against an unjust and illegal termination by the largest corporation in the world and she won.... We need more fighters like Maren in elected office.
