Building Federal Way’s Future Together
Rebuilding Federal Way’s Downtown
Under Mayor Ferrell’s leadership, Federal Way’s downtown has been transformed from empty buildings and graffiti-covered walls into a burgeoning hub for jobs, opportunity, and arts and culture. The Mayor was one of our city’s strongest advocates for downtown Light Rail expansion and drove forward construction of the Town Center Steps, Town Square Park, and the Performing Arts & Event Center. His continued leadership is critical for renovating – and redefining – Federal Way’s downtown.
Effective, Equitable Pandemic Response
Leading the city’s pandemic response, Mayor Ferrell has led with science and public health, partnering with local health care and service providers to connect neighbors with masks, protective gear, care, and vaccines. Through his leadership, the city launched ShopLocalFedWay.com and Federal Way provided millions in direct assistance for small businesses and rental assistance with El Centro de la Raza, along with hazard pay for essential workers and dedicated support for the most vulnerable, including seniors and veterans.
Great Parks and a Healthy Environment
Mayor Ferrell knows how important access to parks and a healthy environment are for maintaining Federal Way’s quality of life. As Mayor, he’s worked to create world class parks; reduce pollution; preserve air quality, clean water, and tree canopy; and implement a new climate action plan, so that Federal Way does its part to prevent climate change.
A Thriving Local Economy
Economic opportunity is at the heart of Mayor Ferrell’s agenda. Through infrastructure investments and support for small businesses, he’s helped bring thousands of jobs to Federal Way. He’ll continue supporting economic development efforts attracting new businesses to Federal Way, creating family-wage jobs, and growing apprenticeships and career pathways.
