Johnson would represent everyone on council | Letter

As a city resident with one graduate and three children in Federal Way Public Schools, I support and endorse Mr. Jesse Johnson as a candidate for City Council Position No. 2. Not only is he actively involved in our community and region, but Mr. Johnson possesses a profound knowledge of the current issues that affect us locally. Furthermore, as a dedicated, passionate youth and family advocate, he is committed to continue collaboration toward a safer, family-friendly, more-inclusive Federal Way.

As a professional, I have experienced Mr. Johnson’s devotion to assuring an equitable education for all students and strong commitment to community values. Jesse Johnson is a qualified and highly invested candidate who is committed to developing a vibrant and sustainable local economy. He is dedicated to safeguarding balance in our city’s growth, and he is inclusive and dedicated to working with all demographics — young, old, small-business owners, people of color, educators, immigrants and community organizers — to ensure a strong voice in serving all residents of Federal Way.

Jesse Johnson brings a unique and desirable educational lens to his candidacy. He ‘s a product of Federal Way and earned his M.A. in Education and his Program Administrator Certification through the University of Washington’s highly selective and rigorous Danforth Educational Leadership Program. Through his subsequent work as a family and community engagement specialist in South King County, Jesse became a visible and focal voice for students and families in our community by facilitating parent programs and alliances to mentor young males of color. As a role model in education, he now applies his expertise to improve student learning outcomes by collaborating with building administrators to recruit and retain staff to better support students emotionally, socially and academically.

I urge residents to strengthen community leadership now, and in the future, by selecting Jesse Johnson as a member of the Federal Way City Council.
