EL'ONA KEARNEY AND HUSBAND KONG INSPIRE STUDENTS AT SEATTLE COLLEGE WITH THEIR PERSONAL STORIES

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Seattle, WA – July 30, 2023 - On July 28, 2023, gubernatorial candidate EL'ona Kearney and her husband Kong delivered powerful speeches at Seattle College, sharing their personal experiences and offering hope to students facing similar challenges. EL'ona recounted her battle with suicide and depression during middle school, while Kong shared his journey of spending 24 years in prison. Their speeches resonated deeply with the students, providing a glimmer of hope that individuals who understand their struggles could potentially hold office and advocate for their needs.

Many students expressed that they had never voted before, believing that the political system was rigged with pre-selected candidates and gatekeeping organizations that hoarded resources while failing to address the needs of the community. EL'ona and Kong's speeches shed light on the lack of accountability for funds and the urgent need to ensure that taxpayer money is allocated efficiently, especially considering the housing crisis affecting many citizens.

EL'ona emphasized that her candidacy represents advocacy for the millions of citizens battling depression, while Kong's story serves as a testament to the possibility of redemption and rehabilitation. Together, they embody the spirit of unity and community, encapsulated in EL'ona's campaign slogan, "I’m not running. We are running for governor."
