“Cathy is a smart and dedicated advocate for a Seattle that works for all of us. She has the energy, commitment, and track record of accomplishment to effectively represent the people of her district, and the vision to see what must happen in order to solve our problems and create a sustainable future.”

-Richard Conlin, Seattle City Councilmember (retired)


“I’ve known Cathy for two decades. We met when our kids were in elementary school and our families have remained friends. 
Cathy is thoughtful, intelligent and one of the nicest people I know. She has a PhD in urban design and planning and has put her training to good use in her community service over the years. She’s pragmatic, a great listener, and a person of integrity who really wants to make a positive difference.”

-Jerry Large, Seattle Times reporter (retired)


“Cathy is someone sincere and someone who is committed to serving the people. You can’t beat that.”

-Greg Cummins, Real Change vendor



“I’ve known Cathy for 30 years. She has a track record of highly effective leadership and management on a range of important urban issues including parks and recreation, climate, and alternative transportation. Cathy is ‘Seattle to the core’ – she is what we need on the City Council.”

-Ed Lazowska, Seattle City community leader


Here’s an article in The Stranger about Cathy that I think touches on a lot of important things. I’ve known Cathy as a neighborhood activist (and the founder/leader of Sustainable Wallingford) and I’ve always been impressed by her ability to identify problems, research solutions, coalition build, and see things through. She’s a global-thinker and a problem-solver. Her two biggest priorities – the climate crisis and housing/homelessness – align with my immediate priorities for the city. And I know she is walking the walk on both, so she will come into the job with ideas and experience. She’s also even-keeled and pretty unflappable, which I think is so important for the city council.”

-Kimberly Christensen, Wallingford Community Member


“Cathy is the person in that race — and perhaps among all declared candidates citywide — whom I regard as most closely aligned with your values and possessing your capacity both to see the big picture and work hard to get the details right. I joined Cathy’s steering committee because she has impressed me as someone who sees the direct links from the steps we must take to avert and adapt to climate disaster to the strategies we must follow to become an even more livable city as we grow, while addressing the issues associated with income and social inequality. With deep roots in District 4, she is profoundly compassionate but hard-nosed in her use of data and best practices to find solutions. You well know her work in founding Seattle Neighborhood Greenways and making it a key player in shaping our transportation future. Beyond that, she has been engaged in planning and building a better, more equitable Seattle for decades, including riding herd over the neighborhood planning process in the 1990s. She’s an excellent communicator with a love for people and a great sense of humor — in other words, she has all the makings of a truly stellar Councilmember.”

-David Goldberg, Wallingford Community Member
