Seattle Weekly

"Shridhar would bring the Port a new, vital perspective, backed up by her work in immigrant communities and as the Deputy Public Affairs Administrator for the City of Renton."

Bonnie Gail, Political Chair, Sierra Club Washington State

“Preeti's commitment to the environment is clear from her work on conservation and climate protection. Her resolve to bring aviation biofuels to Sea-Tac Airport and her support for clean energy show she is the best person to serve on the Port of Seattle Commission, Position 4.”   

Pramila Jayapal, Congressional Representative (7th District)

“I have known Preeti for many years, and I have no doubt that she is the most qualified candidate to serve on the Port of Seattle Commission. I will be voting for her in the November election because Preeti is committed to representing all in King County and her distinguished record of service shows she will ensure our Port works for everyone.”

The Stranger, Seattle newspaper

"The port commission is supposed to represent the citizens of King County, and Shridhar, with her list of endorsements from mayors of cities near the airport, gives voice to communities that the port has historically ignored. Shridhar, who helped create Seattle's Climate Protection Initiative, also has good ideas about using the port...to fight Trumpian immigration policies. We need someone to leverage the port's political power nationally—a power that has too long been used as a tool of huge port corporations to stifle worker rights and environmental protections. Vote Shridhar."  

Denis Law, Mayor of Renton

"Preeti is by far the best candidate to be a Port Commissioner. She is a highly capable leader who has dedicated her career to make a positive difference in our region. I admire her brilliance, compassion and her ability to inspire those around her. I highly endorse her and will be casting my vote for her." 

Nancy Backus, Mayor of Auburn

 "I am delighted to endorse Preeti for Port Commissioner. Preeti brings a sense of passion, commitment and unbounded energy to everything she does and is dedicated to work for the betterment of all of King County. I have no doubt that she will make a terrific, conscientious representative for our region, and work hard for the betterment of our community.  Please join me in supporting Preeti."
