Voter pamphlet

I’m running for Sammamish City Council because I want to protect what makes Sammamish special: our trees, parks, and natural beauty. I remember when my kids walked through woods to get to school. In the 29 years I’ve lived and volunteered in our town, Sammamish has experienced significant changes.

I will fight to ensure our future is well-planned and sustainable. Using my regional partnering experience, I will make data-driven assessments to champion transit, safe roads, and neighborhoods. As a former tech CEO with more than twenty years of senior management experience, I know how to manage multimillion-dollar budgets with transparency, and how to collaborate to find solutions. I look forward to bringing those values to City Council.

I will be a tireless advocate for our community’s best interests, and I ask for your vote. Endorsed by: Washington Conservation Voters; NWPC; King County Democrats; 45th, 41st, 5th LD Democrats; and more

Education: BA, Whitman College, Walla Walla, WA
