Ed Murray for Mayor 2017
We are the official 2017 re-election campaign for Mayor Ed Murray.
About the Mayor: Bold, progressive policy has defined Murray’s first term in office, as well as his 18-year history as a Washington State legislator representing Seattle’s 43rd Legislative District. Under his tenure, Seattle became the first large U.S. city to adopt a $15 minimum wage; we passed secure scheduling for hourly and low wage workers; we’ve made record investments in transit, affordable housing, and parks; we have implemented and expanded an affordable preschool program that will open doors to opportunity for our young people; we have a landmark Housing and Livability agenda that will protect neighborhoods and help our city grow responsibly and sustainably.
Driven by his commitment to social justice and social equity throughout his career, Murray was well known in the Legislature for reaching across party lines to bring meaningful protections and resources to vulnerable populations. Murray was prime sponsor of Washington state’s historic marriage equality law.
