Update 11:23 p.m.:
Mayor Murray released the following statement as Donald Trump is declared the President Elect of the United States:
Regardless of tonight’s national results, tomorrow Seattle will remain a city guided by the values of equality, inclusion and openness.
Tomorrow we will continue to support women, we will welcome as neighbors our Muslim brothers and sisters, and tomorrow Black Lives will still matter. Our City will remain strong because of our diversity, not in spite of it.
In Seattle, our results show a city ready to lead in building a more equitable and progressive future.
As we look forward, we will challenge our people to live up to our values, to ensure we build on the foundation that was laid tonight and that we foster the equitable, inclusive world we envision.
