Keeping it short and sweet, ACLU Burien People Power invited the six Burien City Council Candidates to share their top three priorities if elected.

We asked them to limit their responses to no more than 10 words total.

This is what they sent…

  • Sofia Aragon: Keep Burien affordable, Reduce homelessness, Create jobs
  • Lucy Krakowiak: Did not respond
  • Joel Manning: Public safety, Economic development, Transparent and partisanship-free government
  • Cydney Moore: Addressing poverty through livable wages, Affordable housing, Homeless shelter/resources
  • Kevin Schilling: Public Safety, Economic Development: public/private investments, Transit/road improvements
  • Debi Wagner: Public Safety-gang unit support, Budget, Environment/health, Quiet Skies

We hope this information helps you to make an informed decision to VOTE for the candidates whose values most match what you want for Burien.
