“Sara, with her years of experience as a neighborhood small business owner and her level-headed approach will make the Council’s voice stronger for the all people in our community.”
— Greg Nickles, former Mayor of Seattle

“I’m backing Sara for City Council because she understands the struggles of small business and as sustainability lead at Fremont Brewing, she has a long history of supporting the local food movement and organic restaurants.”
— Maria Hines, Owner of Tilth Restaurant in Wallingford

“Fremont Brewing is a leader in sustainability and their Cowiche Canyon Fresh Hop Ale was the first beer in Washington to get Salmon Safe certification. That’s why I’m supporting Sara Nelson for City Council.”
— David Burger, the Executive Director of Stewardship Partners

“Sara has years of experience working on land use policy and protecting our environment. She understands how to wisely steward Seattle’s growth to reduce climate change while preserving the region’s natural beauty for everyone to enjoy. Her leadership is crucial to ensure the resiliance of our water, forests, and other natural resources. She knows that this land is our land.”
— Joanna Grist, former Director of Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition, Futurewise Board Member, and PSRC GMA Committee
