Do you know that an architect is running for mayor of Seattle, one of the major cities in the United States?
AIA Washington Council has endorsed Peter Steinbrueck, FAIA, for Mayor of Seattle.
Few architects have been elected mayor of any city. Here is a perfect opportunity to elect an architect with experience, skill and passion to lead Seattle.
Peter spent 10 years on the Seattle City Council, two years as president. He drafted Seattle’s downtown livability plan. He set the path for reconnecting the city to the waterfront. He was recognized nationally for his work to end homelessness. He is a lifelong environmentalist.
Peter didn't stop there.
As mayor, Peter will lead the Seattle to create complete neighborhoods, where services, parks, restaurants, schools and transit options are within a short walk of your home.
Peter also knows that to succeed, Seattle has to be part of a regional and statewide game plan. He served on the Puget Sound Regional Council Growth Management Policy Board, Regional Transit, and the Executive Board of the Association of Washington Cities.
He's looking at sustainable solutions holistically, understanding that we need to plan for the next fifty years, not merely the next five.
As mayor of Seattle, Peter will make architects proud. Please take time to donate today, the primary election is August 6. We are only asking that you contribute $25. If every one of us donates, he will be able to share his message with a larger number of Seattle voters.
