We support Karen Stratton for re-election to City Council.

Karen is a thoughtful and compassionate person who listens to, engages with and advocates for all people to make Spokane a great place to live! — Duane Anest

Rarely have a met a more dedicated public servant than Karen Stratton. Her commitment to constituent services is second to none and I proudly endorse her for re-election. — Gene Brake

Karen is a powerful voice for our neighborhood. She knows how to get things done! — Rick Eichstaedt

Karen Stratton believes in the future and is committed and helping our community, that is why with enthusiasm, The Spokane Tribe supports Karen Stratton for Spokane City Council. — Carol Evans, Chairwoman Spokane Tribe of Indians

Since Karen Stratton was appointed to fill a District 3 council term in 2014, the value of my home in Emerson-Garfield has increased by 61% (Zillow estimates). At least some of this increase is certainly due to her tireless work to improve conditions in this once-deteriorating neighborhood. In particular, she helped drive the North Monroe Corridor project to a successful conclusion despite short-sighted local opposition, and it won the American Public Works "Project of the Year" award for Washington. — Jim McDonald

I became a member of the West Central Neighborhood Council in 2014 and have been active in neighborhood revitalization efforts since then. What I know about Karen is that she shows up and she follows through for residents in District 3. She attends neighborhood council meetings, not just in West Central but in all the neighborhoods in her district. She is always available to answer a question or hear a concern. Any time I've asked Karen for help with an issue, she's been there with needed assistance. Somehow she's found a way to get more than 24 hours into a day, because she comes through everywhere that she's needed, not just once or twice, but always. I don't know how West Central could do without her. — Jessie Norris

Having spent my adult life in retirement as a Volunteer Chef at Shalom, and House of Charity I find Ms Stratton's demeanor and approach to homelessness and Community of Other" to be heartening to me. ChefGusOlsen Spokane — John Olsen

I wholeheartedly endorse the reelection of Karen Stratton to the Spokane City Council. She's a principled leader who works hard for the city and its citizens. — Ed. Renouard

I supported Karen Stratton in the past election and will continue to support her this campaign. She has been a long time committed public servant to this city and I truly believe she does her best to do right by the citizens of Spokane. — Laurie Stewart

I come from a family of responsible gun owners.  I stand solidly with the Allegiance for Gun Responsibility and will stand up to the gun lobby and fight for solutions that will help keep gun violence in all its forms out of our communities.

In Washington state, someone is killed by a gun every 14 hours. Across our communities, families are experiencing the tragedy of gun violence every day. It does not have to be this way.
No community is exempt, the threat is real, and I commit to ensuring that our existing gun responsibility laws are effectively implemented.  Karen
