My name is Hannah King, and I'm proud to be running for the Ward 8 City Council seat. Before I speak about my time serving on the council this past year, I want to share my story—the same story I have shared with you all before. A story rooted in the very fabric of Ward 8—a testament to the values and struggles that have shaped my journey.
I'm the daughter of a single mother, a mom who has dedicated her life to serving as a healthcare worker and union steward. My father was a construction worker, someone who worked tirelessly while living with his own deep struggles. Things have not always been easy. Growing up with three siblings and one parent often created challenges—challenges that I'm sure many of you feel each and every day. The realities of my upbringing have instilled in me an unwavering commitment to advocacy and progressive policy-making. I intimately understand the challenges faced by our community because I've walked the same path.
Serving as your Ward 8 City Councilor has been nothing short of an honor and a responsibility that I hold dear. I've prioritized my constituents' views, especially in our toughest votes, because your concerns are at the forefront of my actions. Ward 8 deserves leadership that not only listens but remains steadfast—a councilor committed to being present, engaged, and dedicated to the betterment of our community.
In the face of challenges, I believe Ward 8 deserves consistent leadership—leadership that doesn't waver, leadership that works tirelessly for your interests. I am here to be that leader, to stand by you, and to continue working relentlessly for the betterment of Ward 8 and the entire city.
Thank you for your consideration and continued support.
This is going to be another tough fight, but I can promise I will continue showing up and doing the work, as I always have.
