Monday, June 3, 2019
Seattle, WA — Cathy Tuttle, District 4 City Council candidate, collected the most vouchers from District 4 voters in the month of May, with 609 vouchers (as of May 30). Tuttle received these vouchers from the highest number of individual givers, with 171 distinct donors. Additionally, Cathy Tuttle received the 2nd most vouchers of any candidate for city council in the City of Seattle in the month of May, with 703 vouchers.
“Every day, I enjoy walking through the neighborhoods of District 4, hearing the concerns of my fellow Seattleites,” said Cathy Tuttle. “I’m honored to have knocked on thousands of doors and proud to have gained the support of so many voters. The connections I make at the door show that our community wants a councilmember who is experienced, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I’ve exemplified these traits by bringing together a wide range of parties to the table to negotiate solutions – like I did to build 40 parks and community centers at my time with the Seattle Parks Department.”
The Democracy Voucher program, the first of its kind in the nation, began in 2015 through a citizen-led initiative called “Honest Elections Seattle” in order to reform campaign financing for city elections. Funded through a property tax, residents can donate each of their four $25 vouchers to any participating candidate in city council races.
Information on the source of vouchers was obtained through a request to the Seattle Ethics and Elections Committee. To see the Excel file of full voucher data for May, click here.
