Jorge L. Barón

2212 QUEEN ANNE AVE N. #840


(206) 412-7110

Education: J.D., Yale Law School; Bachelor’s in Economics and History, Duke University
Occupation: Executive Director, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (2008-2023)

For the past 17 years, I have been at the forefront of the fight for immigrant rights and working to serve marginalized communities. From successfully halting deportations after Trump’s travel ban to serving on the State Taskforce on Use of Deadly Force in Policing, I have consistently made a tangible impact by working alongside diverse communities to develop solutions. Now, I aim to bring this same commitment to equity and justice to the King County Council.


My vision for King County is rooted in our shared values of integrity and service. I will invest in preventative and data-driven approaches to improve public safety; climate resilience initiatives; universally affordable childcare; expanded behavioral health services; and a robust transportation system. I am determined to develop affordable and dignified housing for all and lead on comprehensive strategies to support our unhoused neighbors.


The Seattle Times: “The challenges require bold, creative leadership from the Metropolitan King County Council. Barón has the experience, skills and passion needed to help craft policy for county government. … Barón’s experience with effecting change for marginalized communities gives him the edge in this race.”


The Stranger: “Jorge Barón’s nearly two decades of battle on behalf of immigrants, who compose nearly one quarter of King County’s population, stood out above his competition. … Vote Barón.


My wife and I have raised our three children in Queen Anne, and are proud public school parents. I would be honored to earn your vote.

Education: Law Degree and Master’s Degree in Public Administration, University of Washington; BA, Smith College
Occupation: Managing Assistant Attorney General, Washington State Attorney General’s Office

I’m an Assistant Attorney General who protects vulnerable communities, stands up to opioid manufacturers, and holds polluters accountable. I’ve spent my 20-year public service career building coalitions and delivering results. I’m a public school mom, union member, transit rider, and 25-year District 4 neighbor running for King County Council because we need bold and transformative action to urgently improve public safety, and make real progress on homelessness, affordable housing, transit, and climate justice. 


I’m the only candidate in this race committed to protecting our public safety budget and I'll improve staffing and upstream solutions that reduce crime and gun violence. I’ll deliver on a regional plan to reduce homelessness by increasing accountability and rapidly expanding affordable housing and emergency shelter. I'll build on my work as Chair of the County Women’s Advisory Board expanding services for survivors of gender-based violence, childcare, behavioral, and reproductive healthcare. I’ll champion reliable and safe transit, bold climate action, and protect forests and Puget Sound. As King County faces revenue shortfalls, I’ll seek progressive revenue solutions.  


“Sarah is a proven progressive leader and advocate who has stood up to powerful interests and protected our environment, working people…” – Attorney General Bob Ferguson


“Sarah’s track record advancing progressive policy and budget solutions, and work with communities across King County, make her the clear choice.” – County Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles


“Sarah will be a bold progressive leader on the Council who is unafraid to….do the real work of problem solving...” – Councilmember Girmay Zahilay
