Phyllis Porter has seen purpose in representing her community since childhood.
“You are ultimately responsible for you and your own,” her mom always told her. “When you have a problem, seek solutions and share the results with your brothers and sister and all those that are affected by the answer.”
Porter is joining the city council race for District 2, which encompasses the Chinatown International District (CID) and much of southeast Seattle, including Beacon Hill, Georgetown, and further south to Rainier Valley.
The race to fill Council President Bruce Harrell’s South Seattle seat has a new candidate. Phyllis Porter, an educator and South Seattle community organizer, formally announced her candidacy this morning for District 2 of the City Council.
