Seattle is in the news. Everybody is talking about our city. We are one of the only major cities in the country to have a declared Socialist on the city council.

Kshama Sawant is our new Socialist city council member. She is the one who wants to convert the war machine that is Boeing and take all of their equipment at the plant that builds airplanes and tweak it so it can start producing buses and mass transit.
“This city has made glittering fortunes for the super wealthy and the major corporations that dominate Seattle’s landscape. At the same time, the lives of working people, the unemployed, and the poor grow more difficult by the day,” Sawant began.
