In the Trump Era, a Seattle-Only Health Care Option?

One thing Seattle does have in common with San Francisco, Mosqueda notes, is a large system of community health-care providers that could form the backbone of a public provider network. San Francisco’s “medical homes” are mostly community clinics, along with a few private providers.

Mosqueda and Grant Lead for General Election

Teresa Mosqueda is solidly in the lead with 30.8 percent of the votes. There were some expectations from the primary that far-left candidates for Seattle City Council Position 8—labor leader Teresa Mosqueda and former Tenants Union director Jon Grant—would compete for votes. Turns out it would be Jon Grant and Fremont Brewing co-owner Sara Nelson gunning for the second seat, while labor leader Teresa Mosqueda took a very solid lead to make it to the November 7 general election... “I’m just blown away and incredibly humbled,” Mosqueda told PubliCola.
