The Stranger Endorses Rod

This week The Stranger Elections Control Board joined hundreds of community leaders, organizations, and editorial boards in endorsing Rod Dembowski in his race for King County Council District 1.

The Stranger highlighted that “Dembowski is a smart, aggressive "recovering lawyer" with a working-class background that informs his pro-transit, pro-environment, pro-social-service agenda.”

Citing Dembowski’s work to protect independence for public defenders in King County, The Stranger called Dembowski someone “willing to fight more moderate Democrats”.

“I’m honored to receive such a rousing endorsement from The Stranger,” Dembowski said, “and I am proud that they recognized the important work we are doing on the King County Council to protect independence for our public defenders.”
