2019 Endorsements

The Washington Housing Alliance Action Fund supports candidates who champion public policy that prevents and ends homelessness and moves us toward a time when everyone in Washington has the opportunity to live in a safe, healthy, affordable home. 

In 2019, we have endorsed candidates for local offices and for special state legislative elections.


Endorsement process: All candidates seeking an endorsement are asked to complete a candidate questionnaire. For 2019, we developed questionnaires for and prioritized outreach to candidates for Seattle City Council, Tacoma City Council, and Spokane Mayor. We also developed a questionnaire for other candidates seeking our endorsement. After thorough review of responses, and input from local advocates, our endorsement committee recommended a slate of election endorsements to the Housing Alliance Action Fund board.
