About The Issues

Public Service Over Politics

Public Safety

The continued rise in crime is hurting everyone, especially our most vulnerable.

While not every crisis needs an armed response, people still need to be held accountable when they victimize others.

Homelessness - Photo By Patrick Robinson


In 2005, a 10 year plan to end homelessness was announced.

Nearly 20 years and billions of taxpayer dollars later, the problem is worse than ever.

Fiscal Responsibility

In a city as wealthy as Seattle, we can not continue to throw away money on pet projects, failed programs, and endless planning that goes nowhere.

Community Action

Phil doesn't just talk about what is going on in the community...he is actively engaged. Whether he is helping to clean garbage from our local green spaces, delivering food and clean socks to the Union Gospel Mission, or reaching out to local communities to see how he can be of service... Phil is always looking for opportunities to make his district better
