Seattle’s North End has been my home for more than 30 years and is where I raised my daughters. I have dedicated my career to fighting for fairness and economic opportunity. In my 33-year legal career, I have worked as: a public defender, advisor for two governors (Locke and Lowry), King County Superior Court Judge, and as legal counsel at a law firm.


I ran for city council because we needed a strong voice to advocate for our neighborhoods and local businesses. As City Councilmember and the first person to represent District 5, I have fought and delivered real results for North Seattle:


TRANSPORTATION – For too long, our community has been left behind in the transit-planning process. That’s why I successfully fought for the 130th street light rail station, built dozens of new sidewalks, and finished funding the pedestrian-bike bridge that will connect North Seattle College to light rail at Northgate.


HOUSING AND HOMELESSNESS – I’ve helped develop more than a thousand units of affordable housing in our district and voted to expand crucial programs that keep us safe, including the Navigation Team and Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD). I have also secured millions of dollars for small, local non-profits caring for our homeless neighbors.


ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY –  I’ve worked to improve infrastructure, attract new business to our district and develop a building and trades apprenticeship program at North Seattle College that will ensure our young people can secure good paying jobs in Seattle. I’m proud to have helped create thousands of new jobs in our city. I chaired the committee that secured a $1.6 billion renovation to KeyArena, at no cost to the taxpayers, to bring NHL and NBA teams back to Seattle.


I’m proud of these accomplishments, but there is still more to do. We’re facing real challenges and we need strong leaders with experience to find solutions that work. I’m a pragmatic, effective leader who will always put the needs and priorities of District 5 first. I am fiercely optimistic about what we can do next. I hope to earn your vote again to continue the work I have started and keep fighting for our community.


I’m endorsed by The Stranger; Civic Alliance for a Sound Economy; EMILY’s List; MLK Labor; National Women’s Political Caucus-WA; Laborers Local 242; Seattle Firefighters Local 27; Seattle Education Association; SEIU 775; Sierra Club; King County Democrats; the 32nd, 36th and 46th District Democrats.

Ann Davison Sattler: attorney, arbitrator, mom, teacher, community champion.  Ann has lived in Seattle for 23 years and began working with the Seattle SuperSonics in 1996.  After working with the Sonics, she became an attorney and now raises her two children in D5 as a small business owner.  She taught English in Thailand and now teaches international business law at the UW Continuum College. She also worked as a caseworker in the U.S. House of Representatives to resolve constituents’ problems.  


An advocate for those in need: From volunteering with individuals transitioning out of incarceration, leading local environmental clean-ups, working with the UN in a Cambodian refugee camp, tutoring at our local Central Area Youth Association, serving as VP of Recreational Development for the Seattle Youth Soccer Association, along with spearheading efforts raising $200,000 for Seattle Public Schools, Ann has proven her honest dedication to change communities.


Top 3 Priorities:  These public-spirited causes drove Ann to take civic action in Seattle, focusing on issues that have been neglected by our current council:

  • Homelessness & Housing
  • Public Safety
  • Addiction Prevention & Recovery


Good steward of tax dollars:  Ann will redirect city dollars towards effective measures, like increasing access to underfunded addiction treatment, shortening wait times for detox beds instead of funding drug injection sites, and focusing on emergency responses to homelessness.


Seattle needs to be a safe place to live and work:  Ann’s dedicated to rectifying Seattle’s criminal justice system. She’s seen city leadership idle during public outcry for safety improvements.  Ann will fulfill city leadership’s obligation to residents, ensuring victims are heard and respected, with appropriate action taken regarding safety.  


Change on the CouncilAnn listens and is prepared to be a voice for forgotten neighborhoods. She’s proactively met with leaders of neighboring cities to discuss regional responses to issues where there’s been none. It’s time for change on the Seattle City Council. For residents facing neglectful leadership in D5, Ann will bring responsiveness, addressing our urgent problems head-on.  Ann’s ready and passionate about making these changes together, for the city we know and love. 


Bringing people together to get things done. You may have seen Ann in your neighborhood in her Sonics gear, passed a sign on your block or met her at your front door. Ann’s out in the community. Ready to listen. Ready to do better for District 5.


A vote for Ann is a vote for change!
