Affordability for all

You shouldn’t have to be rich to live in Ferndale. As mayor, Brian will make it a priority to combat the rising cost of living and to maintain the affordability of housing in our community.

Cleaner, Greener city

Smarter Financial Management

Residents’ and workers’ rights deserve to be defended. Under Brian’s economic plan, your tax dollars will go further to benefit you and your neighbors, not just developers.


Brian’s Vision

Brian Stawowy is running as an open Democratic Socialist to serve Ferndale’s working class residents—not the real estate lobby and luxury developers. His radical, transformative platform includes fighting for truly affordable housing, creating a local Green New Deal, and ensuring Ferndale is a sanctuary city for all, including the poor, immigrants, people of color, and the LGBTQIA community.
