EBA NEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Reagan Dunn

Councilmember Dunn has turned his focus on the dramatic rise in homicides, property and drug crimes in King County, as well as an increase in police response times. As a former federal prosecutor, he is well prepared to lead on these issues.

Stephanie Bowman

The Eastside Business Alliance is pleased to support Stephanie Bowman’s candidacy for Port of Seattle Commission.

Stephanie Bowman has been a strong and effective advocate for Eastside residents and businesses during her tenure on the Port of Seattle Commission. She has made fostering stronger ties with the Eastside a priority, personally serving on the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce Board and fulfilling her 2019 promise to create a new Port community representative for East King County.

Kathy Lambert

If anyone in local government deserves the nickname, “Hardest Working Elected Official,” it is King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert.

Jared Nieuwenhuis

The Eastside Business Alliance strongly endorses Bellevue Deputy Mayor Jared Nieuwenhuis in his bid for reelection.

During his first term on the Council, Jared Nieuwenhuis has established himself as a common sense, collaborative and effective leader. At the beginning of 2020, after only two years on the Council, he was selected by his colleagues to serve as Deputy Mayor.
