I have known Heidi for more than 25 years, since our student government days at the UW. The Heidi I knew in college is the same Heidi I know now: a tireless visionary and advocate who looks for practical solutions to the problems we face and knows how to channel the right combination of resources to get things done.
Heidi and I have talked at length about the current challenges facing our community, including homelessness, transportation, development, the environment, crime, education, and how to grow and support small businesses and the local economy. She is solution-oriented and will bring a fresh, much-needed perspective to City Hall.
I believe Heidi’s role as a mother has made her an even stronger candidate – she sees how the actions we take today will impact the next generation and the legacy we will leave for them. I wholeheartedly support Heidi Wills for Seattle City Council.
