Endorsements roll in for Jenny Durkan

On Thursday, October 26, former U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan received the endorsements of The Seattle Medium, Northwest Asian Weekly, and Northwest Vietnamese News, which follows the endorsement of Seattle Gay News.

Take a look.....

Northwest Asian Weekly
Two crucial races


'The Northwest Asian Weekly is endorsing Jenny Durkan because she is a strong candidate, experienced, and has a good track record of getting things done. Eric H. Holder Jr., the U.S. attorney general from 2009 to 2015, said it best in a statement endorsing Durkan. 'Jenny doesn't just discuss the problems -she takes urgent action.' And action is what we need in Seattle. A doer, not a talker. From solving homelessness, finding affordable housing solutions, and more, Durkan is familiar with the pulse of the Asian community, and its issues and needs. She also has the support of many prominent Asian community leaders, such as Dolores Sibonga -first woman of color to serve on the Seattle City Council. Sibonga told the Northwest Asian Weekly that Durkan has worked with community leaders of people of color for a long time, including Ruthann Kurose, Martha Choe, Gary Locke, and Nate Miles. In fact, Locke endorsed Durkan in the mayoral race -a big deal coming from the nation's first Chinese American governor, the first Chinese American U.S. ambassador to China, the first Chinese American commerce secretary, and King County Executive -and Seattle City Council President Bruce Harrell. Even the city's interim mayor, Tim Burgess, said, 'Jenny is a leader who will get good things done for our city.' Cary Moon, in our opinion, is too concerned with gathering too much input, hampering the ability to make quick decisions necessary for challenging problems. Durkan was one of President Obama's first appointments. She's been on the front lines fighting for civil rights and making real systemic reforms for decades. We hope you join us in standing with her.'

Northwest Vietnamese News
Progressive values should be inclusive and so should our next mayor


'In examining both candidates' backgrounds, Durkan is better qualified to execute on a vision of a more inclusive, not divided, Seattle [...] While Moon has a long history of advocating for change as an urban planner and community volunteer, Durkan has actually made change happen over and over again as a U.S. Attorney who pushed for police reform, created a Civil Rights Unit, and developed the drug courts. Durkan's expertise in cybersecurity is a huge asset as well [...] On the issues, Durkan has proposed free community college tuition to Seattle high school grads, which will also function to provide a trained workforce for local businesses. This is a win-win solution for our local businesses, and for the graduates of our Seattle Public School system who will have a better opportunity to compete for the well-paid jobs in our region [...] I have been asked many times over the years to publicly endorse candidates. This is the first time I have ever felt compelled to do so because the narrative of division in this year's election is distracting. The real difference between Moon and Durkan is their track record, not their values. My vote is to have a mayor who has the vision and experience to lead a Seattle that includes all voices.'
