Emily is a scientist and a champion of workers’ rights with experience fighting for climate justice, victims of harassment, and evidence-based policy. She also understands the clear need to protect the rights of immigrants and provide a clear racial equity lens in all her work.

I am endorsing Emily Myers for Seattle City Council in the 4th district because of her longstanding support for labor and her commitment to making early learning and affordable housing top priorities in the city council. Ms. Myers garnered the most support from the 43rd Democrats and has a strong record of support from many of our local unions, including the endorsements of SEIU775, the MLK Labor Council and many others. I believe she will be an effective and impactful leader on Seattle’s city council.

“As a working scientist at UW researching Parkinson’s disease and a rank-and-file member of her union, Emily will bring evidence-based progressive policy to the Seattle City Council. With science actively under attack from the far-right, it’s never been more important to elevate powerful voices like Emily’s.
