About Lisa Herbold:
She is the Councilmember for District 1, representing the neighborhoods of West Seattle and South Park, and has worked on issues of access, fairness, and a commitment to a shared quality-of-life. She has helped to craft and pass public policy which includes Paid Sick Leave for the 190,000 Seattle workers who didn’t have it, a Rental Housing Inspection Program for 250,000 renter households, and an acclaimed criminal justice diversion program. Each of these examples of model public policy is being replicated in jurisdictions across the country, and those are a few samples of the work she has done to help Seattle residents. Councilmember Herbold has also been a resident of Highland Park for more than 15 years.
