Transcript of “Very Jenny”
Governor Jay Inslee: Hi — I’m Jay Inslee, and I’m announcing today that I’m enthusiastically endorsing Jenny Durkan for the mayor’s position for the great city of Seattle. It is such a bastion of progressive values, of openness, and tolerance — always forward thinking and inventing the future.
And I’ll tell you something about Jenny Durkan — she has progressive values and she’s fought for them ever since she was a baggage handler and Teamster up in Alaska.
Having those values isn’t enough. You need someone that knows how bring people together. We need a mayor who combines progressive values with second – the ability to get things done.
Her Seattle Promise plan so that every high school graduate can get community college tuition—very farsighted, very appropriate, very Jenny.
She’s advanced some great ideas — micro-housing and building more housing for folks to deal with this housing crisis.
These are achievable real term goals. You’ve got a leader in Jenny Durkan who can get these things done. Seattle is a great city. It’ll be even greater with her. We need Jenny now.
