Salim brought a valuable new perspective to the island, which helped us drive priorities within the City. He delivered tremendous value by adding an element of serious analysis to some of the most difficult issues we have faced in decades. I appreciate that Salim is willing to help the City navigate out of its tough financial position and into a brighter future.

Salim will look out for the well-being of our community, our schools, and our residents. Salim also attended Mercer Island schools. Decades later, Salim has a unique perspective and ability to see the island as a student, a son, an adult, and now as a husband and father. I trust Salim to make the best decision for the good of all Islanders. He cares about the island today, and he cares about our island tomorrow.
