A new year arrives with ongoing challenges for the city of Seattle – among them the Covid-19 pandemic, intractable homelessness, widening wealth and housing gaps, and strain on business. A new mayor and a more moderate city council suggest a new approach, but longtime councilmember Kshama Sawant is emerging from her own election victory with a head of steam and solutions from a familiar socialist playbook. After narrowly defeating a widely watched recall attempt, Sawant called the result a progressive victory over big-business influence. But the recall effort also affirmed how much of a polarizing figure she remains. We sit down with the councilmember to find out how she plans to legislate after the recall attempt and what path she proposes for our city.
