Kshama Sawant (born October 17, 1972) is an American economist and politician of Indian descent, and Seattle City Council member. She is the first socialist to win a city-wide election in Seattle since Anna Louise Strong was elected to the School Board in 1916.

Quotes[edit]

  • We did this. Workers did this. Today's first major victory for 15 will inspire people all over the nation. We need to recognize what happened here in Seattle that led us to this point. 15 was not won at the bargaining table as the so-called "sensible compromise" between workers and business. It was not the result of the generosity of corporations or their Democratic Party representatives in government.
