When I came out 30 years ago, it was the midst of the AIDS crisis. Gay people like me were sometimes hated and almost always misunderstood and cast aside. Coming to Capitol Hill then, I found a place of refuge. There was safety in numbers. By coming out, I found a pathway to thriving, loving, a living a more authentic life, and I did it right here in District 3. For this, I owe a debt of gratitude and am repaying that debt by actively working to create a welcoming city for all who live here and for those yet to arrive here.

To those who haven’t come out, who want to be out, who can’t come out, who never got to come out, who are figuring it out — I see you, I love you, you’re beautiful, and I will always stand with you. #NationalComingOutDay

It was great meeting Jonathan, Lauren, and their dog Naomi while knocking doors near Miller Park! They really like that their neighborhood is becoming more dense by increased density in their single family zone. They have more neighbors in duplexes, DADUs, and with multiple roommates living in big houses. They love having new neighbors having access to affordable housing to achieve a vibrant mix of people in their neighborhood.

If elected to Seattle City Council, I will amend the Backyard Cottage Legislation to create separate tracks for short-term and long-term rentals so that the law is actually creating more long-term housing and not just more income for the wealthy with short-term rentals. We also need to make sure our homeowners most vulnerable to displacement can borrow against the value of their house, guaranteed by the city, so that they can create units for long-term rental and to keep vulnerable families from being displaced. #seattle #eganforseattle

So great to meet Melanie and her twin boys Collin and Will while doorbelling my neighborhood last night. She is worried too many families are being priced out of Seattle and of course is focused on education and climate change because of her three kids. We have to do much more on all three of these issues. Check out my website at www.eganforseattle.org to find out my plan. ...

Had a great time canvassing in the Central District today! While walking down the street I met Ray and Tara, and their boys Michael and Calvin. As young parents they’re concerned about the poor sidewalk infrastructure in their neighborhood. Tara’s mom recently hurt herself as a result of it and their oldest son Calvin is scared of big bumps when in his stroller.

While we have many big issues that we need to tackle as a city, hyperlocal issues such as this one should not be going by the wayside. Poor street infrastructure is not just a safety issue but one of accessibility. Everyone should be able to travel around our city safely!

Today, I joined these young climate change advocates in the fight for a better future. I am constantly inspired by our youth activists who are speaking out here in Seattle and around the world against our global inaction on the climate crisis. They are the backbone of this movement and we need to protect their future. #strikewithus #climatestrike #climateaction ...
