“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. We’re proud to stand with her because she’s the best candidate for the working-class in District 4.”
