Rebecca Saldana

Sen. Rebecca Saldaña

“Lorena Gonzalez stands up for workers — from helping victims of wage theft and employment discrimination as a civil rights attorney to strengthened protections for workers on the City Council. We need a mayor who will keep the rights of workers front and center — someone who will prioritize a diverse economy and living wages. I’m endorsing Lorena as the next Mayor of Seattle.”

Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon

“I am proud to endorse Lorena for Mayor of Seattle because of her bold plans to fight climate change. The impacts of climate change fall disproportionately on communities of color and on low-income communities, and Lorena’s plans to fight climate change at a local level, like reforming exclusionary zoning laws and improving access to sustainable transportation, both reduce inequities and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. She has the vision, experience, and the relationships necessary to implement a strong climate agenda.”

Lillian Ortiz Self

Rep. Lillian Ortiz-Self

“Lorena has always had big dreams – whether that’s to expand access to childcare, improve wages and protections for workers, or to re-invest in small businesses who have struggled during the pandemic. But she also has the tools and the work ethic to deliver on that vision. I am so proud to support my friend in her campaign for Mayor of Seattle!”

Teresa Mosqueda

Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda

“We have a lot we need to get done as a city: addressing our affordability issues, making our communities safer, and ensuring nobody gets left behind as our economy recovers from the pandemic. Lorena Gonzalez has the values, the vision, and the right approach to lead our city.”

Tammy Morales

Councilmember Tammy Morales

“Lorena Gonzalez is someone who shares my values of protecting our city’s most vulnerable. That’s why I’m proud to endorse Lorena to be Seattle’s next Mayor. She’s a champion for working families and keeps the vibrancy of our neighborhoods at the center of her work. Lorena is committed to building a Seattle that will work for everyone.”

Lisa Herbold

Councilmember Lisa Herbold

“Lorena started her career as a civil rights attorney focused on holding police accountable. She is the mayor our city needs during this incredible opportunity to reimagine what public safety looks like in Seattle.”  

Andrew Lewis

Councilmember Andrew Lewis

“As we head into recovery, Lorena is the right leader to build on the hard work ahead of us. We need to implement a regional social and workforce housing strategy, provide support for our small business districts, and create a bold new system of public safety. During her time on the Council Lorena has proven she is the person best positioned to deliver.”

“Having served with Lorena, I have seen up close how strong her values are and how she doesn’t back down from any challenge. Lorena approaches problems with tenacity and knows how to bring people together to make a real difference for the people of Seattle. Above all, I trust Lorena on the issues most important to me, including addressing climate change and combating the disproportionate impacts of environmental racism. I’m proud to endorse her in this race for Mayor.”

Jim Street

Former Councilmember Jim Street

“I endorse Lorena because she has the unique ability to bring collaboration between Mayor and Council where it has been lacking for a long time. She knows the Council; she has led it. She is supported by current council members who look forward to working with her.  All candidates can cite a list of what they will do. Lorena knows how to do it. She will collaborate to address social justice in Seattle and the existential climate crisis.”

“I met Lorena when she was a relatively new attorney and rising star in the legal community. I was struck by her passion for equal justice, vision, drive and leadership.  No surprise that she was drawn to civil rights litigation and then to public service. Lorena will bring these considerable abilities, experience and commitment to social justice to the mayor’s office.”
