“As a Port Commissioner and former small business owner, I know how important thriving local businesses are to our local economies. Renton City Councilmember Kim-Khanh Van shares that vision.

Her advocacy for small businesses on the City Council, ability to remove barriers, and commitment to creating opportunity are exactly what our region needs on the King County Council.

She will be a champion for healthy and inclusive neighborhoods and the infrastructure and small businesses that support them.” – Seattle Port Commissioner Sam Cho

“I’m excited to support Kim-Khanh Van for King County Council because of her passion for consensus-building and partnership to address the needs of people across the district.

That includes the diverse needs of our region’s suburban and rural communities, as well as the people who make them great. She is a tireless community leader and advocate and I am excited to have her leadership serving even more people.” – Black Diamond Councilmember Kristiana de Leon

“Kim-Khanh Van is a natural leader. As a Renton City Councilmember she has helped community members fashion solutions to a wide range of issues including housing, schools, employment, social services and immigrant and refugee advocacy.

Her quick grasp of neighborhood needs and her ability to bring people together has been a superb gift. She will be a great advocate for every King County neighbor.” – Former King County Councilmember Larry Gossett
