Jenny Durkan took the helm of the country’s 18th largest city Tuesday. And with Seattle’s top job comes tough policy choices for the new mayor, including decisions regarding the city’s affordable-housing crunch, neighborhoods concerned with upzones and density, and a growing homeless crisis.
The former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington, appointed by President Barack Obama, and the first female mayor in Seattle in nearly a century, Durkan already has a number of policy proposals pitched during the primary, including free community-college tuition to public high-school graduates and a transportation future that has less cars. She joins the Times for Facebook Live Q&A: #seattle #jennydurkan

Mayor Jenny Durkan was sworn in at the @winglukemuseum on Tuesday. She makes history as Seattle's first lesbian mayor and the first woman mayor in almost 100 years. At the swearing-in ceremony, Durkan said the Donnie Chin murder case will be one of the first briefings she will receive as mayor. “We will keep you informed. We know that that was the loss not just of a person, but of a part of this community, and I will keep it in the forefront.” #seaelex #JennyDurkan #SeattleMayor #Justice4Donnie

@JennyDurkan just became the second woman to be sworn in as the Mayor of Seattle in over 90 years. Bertha Ethel Knight Landes was the first female mayor of a major American city, serving as mayor of Seattle, Washington from 1926 to 1928.

The historic win of Jenny Durkan as Seattle's second female mayor comes with tackling an epic housing crisis. The city grapples with housing affordability and diversified home options due to its tech boom bringing in high-earning workers who drove up the cost of living and housing.

Record homelessness displaces longtime residents and working class, along with developments of one bedroom apartments and condos that attract singles and couples, but thwarts family growth create serious challenges for the city's leadership. #Seattle #techboom #housing #HUD #housingcrisis #jennydurkan

My wonderful wife Pamela and I joined the celebration at the Westin on #electionday to hear the election results and congratulate #JennyDurkan on her historic election as #Seattle’s new mayor. #tlingit
Jenny Durkan, the newly elected mayor of Seattle, will face many challenges. Seattle is experiencing rapid growth, a homelessness crisis, and an opioid epidemic. We look forward to see how she tackles these issues and hope she is able to find adequate solutions. #jennydurkan #seattlepolitics #seattle #seattlemayor #wastatepolitics #washingtonpolitics #libertarian #libertarianparty #liberty #homelessness #opioid
“Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputations can never effect a reform.” - Susan B. Anthony
Now that I’ve had time to meditate on the incredible election outcomes, I can only hope and pray that we will continue to rise up and be our truest selves.
Love yourselves, Darlings. Love yourselves so much that you are willing to fight for your lives.

I imagine a day where we forgive each other, unite, and figure out this whole coexistence thing that many places in the world are already enjoying. Because there are already enough assholes living safely in fear.
It’s in that order: love yourselves, love each other, and love your lives. #somossy #missmossystone #theliteratedragqueen #thediaryofmossystone #autumn #dragqueen #rupaulsdragrace #danicaroem #jennydurkan #vilyles #notmypresident #libertarianparty #billweld #staindmagazine
