The Neighborhood Candidate endorsed by The Seattle Times who Listens & Takes Action!
(Seattle, WA) In front of a gymnasium full of neighbors, parents, and even some very tall former SuperSonics players, local school activist, teacher, and attorney ANN DAVISON SATTLER announced she will be running for Seattle City Council and challenging Debora Juarez to represent Seattle’s 5th District.
“Our motto is ‘Neighbors in Action.’ I’m asking for our neighbors to step up and take action,” said Ann. “Like a team—represented here by former Sonics and my youth soccer team—each one has to make sure they provide their contribution to the whole as best they can because otherwise the team can’t win. Right now, we are not doing enough to bring our diverse communities together. They all must be a part of the team to shape our city. Each person’s contribution matters and is necessary.”
“I’m running because the city council is not solving the problems facing our neighborhoods such as homelessness, substance abuse, and public safety. It’s time to put new players on the court. This campaign isn’t about me. I’m just the vehicle for some of those new ideas, which will come from all of us. Because otherwise, Seattle won’t succeed.”
As councilmember, Ann’s priority will be to put neighborhoods first. She will work on addressing the root causes of homelessness, especially mental health and substance abuse. She wants to see our parks and neighborhoods clean and open for all to use. Ann wants to see better care of our environment, tackle potholes, while making sure Seattle is livable for all.
“The Times recommends….. Ann Davison Sattler, [she] is the best choice to represent District 5, covering the city’s diverse and rapidly evolving North End.
…Sattler vows to be responsive to constituents and focus more on city issues — such as housing, homelessness and public safety — than national politics.
…for a City Council making a fresh start and needing to rebuild relationships with neighborhoods and constituents, Davison Sattler is the best candidate in District 5.”
David Baker – Current Mayor of Kenmore
“Ann reached out to talk with me after hearing my public comment about not being able to get a meeting with the current city councilmember in District 5. Regional relationships are important and I endorse Ann, who makes time for what’s important.”
George Liu – Former District 5 Candidate
“After much thought, I decided to withdraw my candidacy from the District 5 city council race to, instead, support Ann Davison Sattler for city council. I have lived in Seattle for over forty years, and I believe Ann is the leader and advocate our community needs. I fully support her and invite you to join me in voting for Ann in our upcoming city council election.”
Bill Olson – Aiken, St. Louis & Siljeg, P.S.
“I, as a 40 year member of the Seattle legal community, support Ann Sattler for Seattle City Council. She is committed, civic-minded, engaged and professional.”
