Sally Clark kicks-off re-election campaign for City Council
Sally Clark kicks-off re-election campaign for City Council
150 people hear Clark unveil campaign theme of "healthy, safe and affordable neighborhoods"

Openly-Lesbian Seattle City Councilmember Sally Clark held her re-election campaign kick-off on Wednesday, April 11, at the FareStart Restaurant in downtown Seattle. FareStart trains homeless people to work in the restaurant industry.

About 150 people packed into the upper floor of the restaurant to hear Clark speak, including several King County Councilmembers and fellow City Councilmembers.

"I feel good about tonight. I think it is a great start to the campaign. I look forward to having more great events and the chance to talk to more people," Clark told the Seattle Gay News Wednesday. Clark is seeking her first full four year term on the city council. No one has filed to run against Clark, who was first appointed to her seat in January 2006. She was later elected to the position in a special election on November 7, 2006.

"You can't take anything for granted. There is a long time between now and the end of the filing period. Anything can happen," she said. "In recent history, we have had some surprise last minute entries. We have also had people move from seat to seat."

The focus of the campaign is "healthy, safe and affordable neighborhoods," according to Clark. "It may sound really broad, but those are the things people want," she said.
