Jamila Taylor’s choices reflect her core values

Jamila Taylor’s choices reflect her core values

Jamila chose to serve on the city Human Services Commission and make a difference within the community where she chose to live: our community.

Upon graduating from one of the top law schools, Jamila Taylor could have chosen a lucrative position in a corporate law firm. Instead, Jamila chose a nonprofit organization where she serves the underserved.

With her impressive credentials, she has had opportunities to serve on high profile boards in Seattle, King County and Olympia. Jamila chose to serve on the city of Federal Way Human Services Commission and make a difference within the community where she and her family have chosen to live: our community. On many days when many of us are sleeping, Jamila is up before 6 a.m. to assist with the medical needs of her twin brother and her mom. Jamila cares.

After reading numerous articles and listening to residents about the city of Federal Way and the Weyerhaeuser property, about light rail coming to Federal Way in 2024, and about youth violence prevention, Jamila realized the need to have fresh ideas and the need to have input from the broadest set of perspectives on issues, so she decided to run for City Council Position 5.

Her commitment to community service, her commitment to open government and transparency, her ability to analyze complex situations and come up with common sense solutions make Jamila uniquely qualified to serve our community.

With numerous options, Jamila chose Federal Way and now it is our time to show our appreciation and choose her.
