SECB Dissent: Vote For Teresa Mosqueda

The Seattle Times fears Teresa Mosqueda. And what is it they fear? That she will be more effective than Grant. Mosqueda has more political experience, is overwhelmingly supported by urbanists, and has deep roots in the labor movement. And most importantly, unlike Grant, Mosqueda is running on a solid record of accomplishments. She was on the state board that rolled out and oversees Obamacare. To the use the words of former County Executive Ron Sims, she is “a respected health-care policy advocate with the heart of a caregiver.” Mosqueda also chaired the Farmworker Coalition and the Anti Wage Theft Coalition, and she helped found the Racial Equity Team. Since 2015, she has been the Political and Strategic Campaign Director for the Washington State Labor Council, an organization that is "implementing last year's successful ballot measure to raise the minimum wage and require paid sick time across Washington." … Read More

Mosqueda’s Response Letter to Seattle Times Endorsement Has 300 Signatures

Signatures include dozens of high-profile names—both mayoral candidates Jenny Durkan and Cary Moon, three female city council members (Sally Bagshaw, Debora Juarez, and Lorena Gonzalez), special advisor to the mayor Sera Day, former deputy mayor Hyeok Kim, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, Gender Justice League director Danni Askini, and several state legislators... "Too often that type of language is what we hear in the work place every day,” Mosqueda said. adding that she thought Grant was telling editorial boards what they wanted to hear. “He can’t call himself a housing advocate and nod along with The Seattle Times when they say there’s enough affordable housing.”

Arcade Fire’s Will Butler Joined Nikkita Oliver and Teresa Mosqueda on Stage to Push for Stronger Police Accountability Laws

"In response to a question from Butler about whether Washington has seen any efforts like I-940 before, Mosqueda raised last year’s successful drive for increasing the statewide minimum wage to $13.50.

Guest Editorial: Who Defines Progress?

“Progressive” is not a t-shirt you get to put on one day. It is years of fighting, being in the streets, on the strike lines, being with and from communities pushing for change, living the experience of systems failing you, and knowing how to make change—not just make noise or be there for the cameras. For those who do not live under the protection of systemic privilege, we do not know what it is to have what we need without a fight. Fighting does not make us “liberal” or “progressive.” The urgency to fight to have our basic human needs and dignity honored is survival. Fighting, and ultimately winning, radical policy changes does not make us “establishment.” It makes us effective … Read More

At-large city council race tests Seattle’s progressive identity

During her master’s program at Evergreen State College, Mosqueda began tinkering with the machinery of state government. She worked at the state Department of Health tracking the humdrum legislation that forms the building blocks of a healthy society: nutritious food in schools, safe sidewalks, physical activity, public spaces for breast feeding. … Read More

Seattle candidates talk human services

"Mosqueda said more needs to be done through an “intersectional lens” to spread the word about the protection orders by working with community organizations and nonprofits.
