Why we are thankful
November 23, 2022
With Thanksgiving this week it’s a good opportunity to take time to discuss what we at Change Washington are thankful for.
Our heartfelt thanks go to those who financially support Change Washington. Your contributions allow us to continue tracking and monitoring public policies in Seattle and King County that affect you and others throughout our region.
We’re thankful to everyone who follows our work and reads our weekly articles/action alerts, shares them with others, and takes the time out of your busy day to contact elected officials on matters important to the city and region. Each individual effort may seem small but as we’ve heard many times from those contacted, the collective voice of many has an impact.
We’re grateful for the important victories we’ve secured this year. As polling continues to show, more and more people believe it’s time to change the trajectory of the city and county regarding public safety and homelessness. We’re also thankful for the elected officials fighting to make our area a better place to live; they face incredible challenges and strong opposition from entrenched, vocal fringe activists, yet they press onward. It’s vital they know their work is appreciated.
There is no quick, easy fix to these problems, and getting a handle on them will take time. But, we’re making progress in areas that matter, and for that we should be thankful.
Lastly, let us be thankful for the privilege of participating in a movement that will put us back on the right track to where Seattle and King County are seen as ideal places to live, work, raise a family, and run a business. We will have the pride of saying we all did our part when it mattered.
From all of us at Change Washington, we wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
