Voter pamphlet

I’m running for Sammamish City Council because I see the potential our community has to offer. We need leaders who are willing to listen. Sammamish has been my home for 39 years, and as a real estate broker, I help others find their home in Sammamish too.

We’ve seen the concerns of residents discounted too often. I promise to respect your voice and listen to our community’s concerns. Sammamish is a growing city with important decisions ahead of us. We need leaders who will represent us and manage Sammamish’s growth in positive ways. I’m excited to bring my business experience, leadership as Sammamish Chamber of Commerce President, and my years in this community to City Council. I would be honored to earn your vote.

Endorsements: Dow Constantine; Former Sammamish Mayor Don Gerend; Washington Conservation Voters; King County Democrats; 5th, 41st, and 45th LD Democrats; National Women’s Political Caucus of Washington

Education: B.S. Psychology, University of Puget Sound; Real Estate Managing Broker’s License

Occupation: Real Estate Managing Broker, small business owner
