Call the Council

After passing a Green New Deal for Seattle resolution last month, the Seattle City Council has an opportunity to follow up their words with actions.

Can you please call these four key swing votes and ask them to vote YES on ALL of the climate legislation before them this month?

District 1 Council Member Herbold: 206-684-8803
District 4 Council Member Pacheco: 206-684-8808
District 7 Council Member Bagshaw: 206-684-8801
Citywide Council Member Gonzalez: 206-684-8802

Suggested Call Script:

“Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am calling to ask that Council Member [NAME] support the Green New Deal Oversight Committee ordinance that will be voted on this Monday. Creating a Green New Deal Oversight Committee, made up of representatives of communities most impacted by economic and environmental injustice in our city, is a vital step toward realizing a just and equitable Green New Deal for our city. Please pass the strongest possible version of the Green New Deal Oversight Committee ordinance..”

Once you have made your calls, can you also please send an email to the Council Members as well? 

District 1 Council Member Herbold: lisa.herbold@seattle.gov
District 4 Council Member Pacheco: abel.pacheco@seattle.gov
District 7 Council Member Bagshaw: sally.bagshaw@seattle.gov
Citywide Council Member Gonzalez: lorena.gonzalez@seattle.gov

You do not need to live in a Council Member’s district to let them know that you support a policy.
