REALTOR®-Supported Candidate Appointed to Seattle City Council

April 17, 2024

Tanya Woo, whom Seattle King County REALTORS® supported in her unsuccessful bid to win a city council seat in November 2023, was appointed to an open seat on the council in January. Woo filled a council vacancy created when Councilmember Teresa Mosqueda won her election to the King County Council.

Woo was selected from a pool of 72 applicants. She is a co-owner of the historic Louisa Hotel on King Street in the Chinatown International District (CID), which she and her family converted into apartments. She has also participated with a group doing volunteer outreach to people experiencing homelessness, seeking to connect them with services and improve community safety and quality.

Woo’s platform aligns well with the goals of the new council majority to improve public safety, reduce homelessness, and guard against increased taxes. Woo will stand for reelection during the upcoming 2024 election cycle and has begun accepting Seattle Democracy Vouchers, mailed to Seattle voters in March.
