Kent is a wonderful city that has been good to me and my family. My goal, as a working City Council member, will be to make Kent an even better place … a community that we can all be proud of … a complete community that provides family-wage jobs and great places to live.


I’ve been an active volunteer with dozens of community organizations, including service as past president of the Kent Chamber of Commerce and a board member of the Kent Downtown Partnership. As a hands-on worker in the East Hill and downtown cleanup projects, I’ve met hundreds of other Kent people who share the goal of making our city great not only for today’s families, but for our kids and grandkids.


Working together I know we can achieve our vision of making Kent an even better place. If you agree, I’d appreciate your support and your vote. Thanks.

I believe we can do more to make Kent an attractive, safe and welcoming place to live and do business.


I've been working hard in our Capitol representing working families on issues ranging from education policy to economic development.


I’m the only candidate with a plan to establish stable funding for senior and veterans services and protecting the most vulnerable. I’ll act quickly to improve traffic, maintain our infrastructure and hire the additional police officers needed to keep our neighborhoods safe.


Others expect you to pay more taxes while watching state and federal funding slip by. I will leverage regional relationships to make sure we are getting our fair share while keeping our taxes low.


I’m endorsed by 40 elected officials, our former police chief, fire commissioners and school board members because of my experience and track record of delivering results.


I’d be honored to have your vote.

I am committed to public service.  Over 20 years I have taken an active role in Kent’s ongoing growth and the building of a safe and vibrate city.  During those years I have held many leadership roles within the city and the school district.  I was appointed by the mayor to serve on Kent’s Land Use and Planning Board and the Mayor’s Advisory Team which provides decision-making information concerning Kent and its residents.


I am committed to lasting improvement for Kent’s citizens and its diverse population, creating a safe and sustainable plan for economic growth and prosperity by addressing city finances and infrastructure. Helping my city excites me, which is why I am offering my talent, educational expertise and various volunteer experiences for the continued success of the city.  I would appreciate your support, vote for Barbara Phillips, to serve on the Kent’s City Council, Position #6.
