Mayor Bruce Harrell Leads Decisively and Compassionately

Rotarian and co-founder of Vibrant Cities (, James Wong,  introduced his friend, Mayor Bruce Harrell, for the day’s featured program. As a passionate leader who aspired to be Mayor of Seattle as an 18-year-old valedictorian at Garfield High School, Harrell snubbed ivy league schools to attend UW where he was an All-American football player.  After serving on the Seattle City Council for 12 years, he retired only to return in a victorious run for Mayor of Seattle. 
Mayor Harrell was interviewed by past club president, Mark Wright, who asked the mayor why he came out of retirement to run for Mayor.  “The rhetoric was intolerable as was the attitude about business and public safety,” he said. “I wanted to get back in the game with a top-tier executive team of people who love the city and who will fight through the noise.”
