Tim Burgess: City Council #7, Seattle

Previously endorsed by Sierra Club in 2007, Council member Burgess has been an effective and outspoken leader on key environmental issues in Seattle. For example, Mr. Burgess played a crucial role in advancing the 2008 parks levy and has been a major proponent of the city’s Zero Waste campaign. With his data-driven approach to policy decisions and commitment to city programs that produce measurable results, we believe he will continue to lead as the city addresses difficult issues such as density and carbon neutrality.
