- Eric Richey, Whatcom County Prosecutor
“Dan has been a leader in providing alternatives to incarceration and finding treatment options for those that struggle with addiction. I support his efforts to address root causes to the problems we are seeing in our community. He has my vote.”
- Azizi Tookas, Owner Brandywine Restaurant
"Through serving together on City Council, I've seen how Dan has put the work in on the front-lines of helping to implement solutions for Bellingham's biggest challenges with housing, homelessness and behavioral health. He's not just been there for the vote, but in the rooms where ideas, planning, cooperation and communication happen. Dan has a true passion, and track record of success, for effectively addressing the issues our community cares most about."
- Hollie Huthman, Bellingham City Council Member
"In the wake of our national racial reckoning in 2020, Dan's leadership on City Council declaring racism a public health crisis, and his work in the early stages of devising the approach to creating a Racial Equity Commission have been critical. Dan is a true ally in our efforts to make our city more livable for all its residents."
-Damani Johnson, Civil Rights Activist
"Dan has been a consistent advocate for improving behavioral health response and treatment in our community."
-Michael Shepard, Port of Bellingham Commissioner
