About Damiana Merryweather

Damiana Merryweather was a first-time candidate for SeaTac City Council and ran as part of a progressive slate of four candidates. These four candidates attempted to unseat four conservative councilmembers who swept to power in a 2015 election, giving the City Council a strong conservative majority. In the 2019 election, two of the four progressive slate of candidates won their seats, unseating the conservative incumbents. Damiana was ultimately unsuccessful in her race. Learn more here.
