Elected Officials

Hamdi is a proven leader and problem solver who has worked alongside me for over ten years. As my former Deputy District Director, Hamdi worked with our federal agencies to support small businesses and our community and families impacted by the aviation industry. Hamdi’s voice on the Port is needed now more than ever in a time that requires leaders who listen to and address their communities’ needs. Hamdi’s lived experience and expertise will ensure that our communities have an equitable plan for COVID-19 recovery. I am so proud to endorse Hamdi Mohamed for the Port of Seattle, Pos. 3. I cannot wait to see what her bold leadership in development, equity and accessibility can bring to our Port.

U.S. Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal

Hamdi Mohamed has worked in collaboration with my office over the last several years around protections for labor and small businesses. Hamdi is a passionate leader and possesses the skill set required to excel at the Port of Seattle Commission. Her personal and professional experiences will allow her to be a strong, effective voice on the Port Commission from her first day in office. During COVID-19, our working people have been hit the hardest. I know Hamdi will work tirelessly to support our aviation, maritime, and trades communities to address the inadequacies they have long faced, even before the COVID-19 pandemic. She will listen to the community’s needs and follow a robust implementation plan for recovery. I am confident that Hamdi will continue to fight for our working people and bring transparency, equity, and accessibility to our Port for years to come.”

 

– U.S. Congressman Adam Smith

Hamdi Mohamed’s extensive work experience and federal government background have been essential to protecting our workers, immigrants, and small business owners’ rights by advocating for their protections during our toughest times. Hamdi will be a regional leader to remedy some of the Port’s most pressing needs, such as human trafficking, trade issues, and labor protections. Hamdi will continue to advocate for our communities’ workforce protections while ensuring that our labor force has the resources necessary to recover from the pandemic effectively. Hamdi’s leadership will increase access to resources and direct collaboration with SeaTac Airport and our seaport to combat our long-time human trafficking crisis. She will prioritize maintaining positive international relations that affect our trade industry and undo the harm that has hit our workers hard. With her dedication to service, we will build back better and stronger. That is why I am proud to endorse Hamdi Mohamed for the Port of Seattle, Position 3.

Hilary Franz
As Commissioner of Public Lands, I know the importance of strong leadership in protecting our environment and creating economic opportunities that lead to good paying jobs. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us just how fragile our communities are. More than ever, we need a leader who can navigate us back to solid ground. Hamdi is well qualified to tackle the Port’s most pressing issues, help restore our native salmon populations, lead on climate change, and be the voice at the table our workers deserve. Hamdi will be a strong proponent of electrification of the Port, making the Port a pioneer in sustainable development. With Hamdi’s leadership, I am confident that the Port will play a pivotal role in our regional recovery efforts. That is why I am proud to endorse Hamdi Mohamed for the Port of Seattle Commission, Pos. 3.

The Port has a profound impact on people’s lives — especially in South King County. Hamdi gets this. She is a skilled policy leader from South King County, who will ensure all impacted communities are heard when the Port makes these critical policy decisions. I’m proud to support her!
