"Grant has the bold policy ideas this city needs, like increasing taxes on corporations to fund low-income housing, rolling back sweeps of homeless encampments, and reducing maximum sentences for misdemeanors to help prevent the deportation of people who get caught up in low-level criminal proceedings. His platforms were crafted with input from the people actually affected by these policies. His proposals offer a clear-eyed analysis of the ways the free market fails to meet the needs of our city's most vulnerable."
"Seattle needs fresh leadership willing to question and challenge insiders and policies that aren’t working and are making Seattle less affordable for renters and homeowners paying the tab."
"Everywhere we go, it seems, Jon Grant is there. Whether at a march for black lives or for fossil-fuel divestment, a HALA meeting or a No New Youth Jail protest, a rally for Charleena Lyles or a homeless-encampment sweep, Grant has proven himself both ubiquitous and consistent, painstakingly growing a grassroots campaign that relies on a hell of a lot of real conversations with Seattleites."
