Local Mother and Activist
Ann Davison Sattler to Seek Council Seat
“Race will center on Neighbors in 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.
