Mayor Bruce Harrell

Master of Ceremonies

Bruce Harrell and his family have been committed to community service in this region for more than four decades. Bruce began his public service in 1979 working for the Seattle City Council under Council President Paul Kraabel. He attended Seattle Public Schools, graduating from Garfield High. He played football for the University of Washington (1978 Rose Bowl Champion, 1979 Sun Bowl Champion, 1st Team Academic All American and All Pac-10). He received the 2007 University of Washington distinguished Alumni Award in Political Science and 2008 Husky Legend award. Bruce was also elected to the UW Alumni Board of Trustees.

In 2007, Harrell was elected to the Seattle City Council. He was reelected in 2011 and 2015, choosing not to run in 2019. In 2016 he was chosen as President of the City Council and for a brief time in 2017, served as acting mayor. He was elected Mayor in his own right in 2021, becoming the second black mayor in the city and the first Asian American.

Harrell’s legacy is substantial, from leading the move requiring police officers to use body cameras, to barring employers from automatically excluding job candidates with criminal records. Bruce’s commitment to minority business in the region is impressive. He has served as the MC for the Tabor 100 Gala many times in the past, and we are pleased to have Mayor Bruce Harrell onstage for our 22nd Annual Gala.
