A Better Bellingham

I had always admired politics from the sidelines, never seeing myself as someone who would participate in the way I want to now. However, when a certain candidate ran last year, I took notice. When he spoke of students who couldn't afford school, rising inequality, and an economic system that was rigged against the little people, it was the first time a candidate inspired me since I heard about Harvey Milk winning on his fourth run.

I am a student who had to take a break from school. I want that break to allow me to make a difference. There are representatives in the legislature without a degree - and that's a valid perspective to bring to the council.

When has the voice of the ever growing student population not just been listened to, but truly represented?

With a growing student population, what we aren't talking about is that many of them are homeless, brought here by promise, and left behind by policy. I know we can't fix everything from the council, but I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and do the people's work - not the work of the corporate interests.

Thanks in advance for your support,

Zack Stallings
