The political climate in our nation’s capitol may be tumultuous, but in the other Washington we’re electing progressive women with fresh ideas. Join local activist blog Civic Ventures for a live recording of their podcast The Other Washington as they interview newly elected Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, Seattle City Councilmember-elect Teresa Mosqueda, and State Senator-elect Manka Dhingra (45th LD). Learn and ask about the issues that drive them and their experience as ringleaders of their campaigns.
Jenny Durkan is Seattle’s newly elected Mayor. She served under president Obama as the United States Attorney for the Western District of Washington, and in 2009 she became the first openly gay U.S. Attorney in our country’s history.
Manka Dhingra is a newly elected Washington State senator serving the 45th legislative district. She previously served as Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney with the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, and as an anti- domestic violence advocate and community leader.
Teresa Mosqueda served as the consumer advocate on the WA Affordable Care Act Exchange Board, and Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO. She is Seattle’s recently elected City Council Position-At-Large 8.
