It is my honor and pleasure to support and endorse Gary Brose for Mayor of Seattle. I have known Gary since grade school and consider him a great friend. He has owned several successful businesses in Seattle over the last 40 years. As a business leader, he has demonstrated that he knows what takes to run a successful business, solve problems and be fiscally responsible. As a friend, I have always found him to act with integrity and thoughtfulness; traits that I feel would be very useful when dealing with city officials and business leaders during tough deliberations. It is time for Seattle to elect a no nonsense, practical and tough fiscal leader as the next Mayor. — Gary Engel

6/16/17:  Gary Brose has our endorsement for Mayor of Seattle.

— Mainstream Republicans

Friends, the position for Seattle Mayor is open this year and changes are needed . Seems we keep getting more of the same and the same is not improving the face of Seattle. What is needed is someone who truly cares for the city and the folks living in this dynamic community. We need to see a better accounting for and limitations to the taxes and fees paid. We need real improvements in our local transportation and law enforcement needs some visible support from the office of the mayor. The homeless are always being addressed but improvements in their situation just are not apparent. There are many issues that have done nothing but stagnate over the years. We need someone willing to make significant changes, someone interested in you and the city which is why I endorse Gary Brose for Mayor — Jim Brose

I have personally known Gary Brose for 40 years. He is a smart, hard-working entrepreneur and business owner who has what it takes to manage the City of Seattle. — Donna Stake

When I first met Gary professionally in the mid-80's, I was quickly impressed with his leadership skills and willingness to work hard to finish what he starts. He has a creative approach that combines the best of thinking out of the box, while being grounded in common sense and pragmatism. Since then, I have worked on many projects with Gary as well as spent time with him socially, and I can attest that he has a heart-felt concern for the well being of the people around him. I am certain that empathy will extend to the general citizenry of Seattle, and therefore, it is with real enthusiasm that I offer my endorsement of Gary Brose for Mayor of Seattle. Glen K. Byers — Glen Byers

I want to go on record as endorsing Gary Brose for the office of Mayor of Seattle. Since 2005, I have been fortunate enough to have been a part of his management team in the realm of airport operations, ground transportation and logistics. I find his work ethic and personality to be very refreshing in a high stress field. In my opinion, Gary brings excellent credentials, drive, sensibility and real-world expertise to this critical position. Throughout my experience there is a constant expectation of accountability and ownership to every decision that is made by either Gary himself or any other individual that is part of his selected team. Without question, Gary is a proven and effective leader on the business front through motivation and creative, critical thinking. He has always been readily prepared to contend with any challenge and I truly respect his ability to communicate with a broad range of individuals throughout the work force. — Scott Petersen

I have provided legal services to Gary for over 30 years and have great respect for his honesty, integrity, no-nonsense approach to problems, and his love for the City of Seattle.

I served on the Mayor's Small Business Task Force with Gary. He is a highly motivated small business owner who is always looking for continuous improvement in whatever he is involved in. He is an "idea person" and also a "doer". He is well organized, thoughtful and fair plus thorough. Gary is one who does what he commits to do. Gary would represent all people of Seattle respectfully and fairly as Mayor of Seattle. — Teresa Santerre

I've worked with Gary Brose for close to two years now on the Economics Visiting Committee, which is an alumni board for the U of W Economics department. While Gary was not an Econ major, he does so want to and enjoys helping the department and the students. Gary's enthusiasm, energy and desire to do good is outstanding. He went out of his way (and still does, in fact) to think of new ideas that could energize our alumni. Gary is the best combination I know of high energy with years of good common sense experience. — Olga Yang
