Mayor Murray featured as one of the Politico 50

Mayor Murray was honored today as one of Politico Magazine’s ‘50 thinkers, doers and dreamers who really matter in this age of gridlock and dysfunction.’

The Mayor, along with investor Nick Hanauer and SEIU International VP David Rolf, was recognized for his work in raising Seattle’s minimum wage to $15 an hour which, Politico wrote, is “not only a better deal for Seattle’s working poor but an unlikely national movement making the case that the best way to fix the economy might not be complicated poverty-fighting programs but actually putting more money in workers’ pockets.”
