I extend my sincere thanks to the following individuals and organizations for their endorsement of my campaign for city council!


  • As someone who believes that the changes necessary to deliver for the working class will most certainly take place at the local level, I was absolutely thrilled to learn that Chelsea Rustad had chosen to run for Tumwater City Council. Running as a socialist is a move that is both inspiring and courageous, and I can tell you that Chelsea’s declaration of intent to run is already a victory of sorts. She is confronting Cold War-era stigmas, challenging narratives, and raising awareness about what might be possible when people choose to step into their power. As a friend, I can tell you that Chelsea’s commitment is unwavering, and her integrity sets an enviable standard. Tumwater City residents would do well to learn about Chelsea. She is the future.” – Mimi Soltysik, Socialist Party USA 2016 presidential candidate
