We must carefully select our representative for a seat on the Seattle City Council District 7. James Donaldson is a person who is aware of certain concerns the district has, not just general concerns, but specific concerns. I firmly endorse James Donaldson for Seattle City Council.”

Joe A. Kunzler

"James Donaldson is a good draft pick for Seattle City Council this year.  Donaldson will bring to the Council Chambers experience with basketball, business, and resilience making him as well rounded as a properly inflated NBA regulation basketball.  I am also confident Donaldson will also help his colleagues restore a sense of team in this region in tackling transit and transportation, homelessness, addiction and congestion to restore a sense of community." –

Joe A. Kunzler, Regional Transit Advocate
