Written Voters' Guide Statement

Mac McGregor wants to lower the barriers to success for everyone in our city. He believes raising up those in marginalized communities, and by doing so, we ALL benefit! He understands the struggles of Seattle residents and is along side you. As the first transgender candidate for city government, he has a unique and broad perspective that is desperately needed on our City Council.

Through years of service as an educator, activist, and City Commissioner, Mac is a proven bridge builder. As a former small business owner and college professor, he listens to the needs of the people and acts to create change. He is a genuine and will make honest and educated decisions for the people of this city. As part of a working class family trying to survive and thrive he understands life in Seattle. Mac McGregor is a movement toward change, integrity and civil rights for all people regardless of gender, sexuality, race, religion, national origin or creed. The time upon us is a critical one, where the need to change hearts and minds towards a more expansive and inclusive system is of grave importance.

Mac has decided to run as a non-binary candidate and not as a democrat. Seattle City Council is a non-partisan position and he refuses to allow a political label to restrict him or be a part of a system that is exclusionary or divisive in any way. He will be supported for the content of his character, his platforms on the issues, and his ability to make smart and productive decisions. He will always choose integrity. His loyalty lies with what is best for ALL people in our city. He does not believe that the binary political system is currently serving most of us, and is taking a stand against it through this campaign. He will create change in our city without obligation to any special interest groups or organizations. And he is not taking donations from big business or developers.

Mac McGregor is creating a movement—helping light a fire inside all of us to prioritize basic human rights and dignity across our country. He is empowering those who have felt like they’ve lived in the shadows. The first few people of color, women, gays, and lesbians who ran for office advanced the cause of freedom for all. This is the next step. Mac will bring awareness and distinction to Seattle.
