It has been an honor representing you on the city council following my appointment earlier this year. My husband Frank and I are fortunate to raise our sons in this beautiful community. My family is a primary reason I want to serve our city. As the only current councilmember with young children, I offer a needed perspective shared by so many of you.


Our community is a special place. We enjoy safe neighborhoods and beautiful views. My goals continue to be preserving public safety (particularly considering new housing regulations), ensuring a balanced budget, and supporting a transparent and responsive city government. I will also champion maintaining our city infrastructure, including roads, sidewalks, utilities, and parks.



As your city councilmember, I am committed to being open and accessible to residents. I ask for your support and vote. Let’s keep our city a great place to live and raise a family.

I am a lifelong resident of Clyde Hill raising my boys here.  My agenda is: Air Quality, Privacy, and Fiscal Responsibility.  Our laws currently deem hundreds of hedges and green walls illegal. These natural beauties reduce car pollution and provide privacy.  We can keep them and still protect our views.  


My first career was in public interest law fighting for the people.  My second has been running a successful business.  I will bring much needed legal and business experience to the council.



I know that pushing for change means a lot of work.  I won’t just sit back and watch. I will be an active member of the counsel and always have an open door.  Call, write, or text, I want to hear from you.  I will always tell you where I stand.  Clean air and privacy.  Vote for Spencer Hamlin- Clyde Hill City Counsel Seat 2.

Occupation: Vice Chair and Senior Partner at Deloitte & Touche

I’m running to serve the residents of Clyde Hill because my skills and experience are likely beneficial to our current needs. Such needs include eliminating the level of unnecessary drama at City Hall, focusing on establishing financial discipline to avoid deficits, holding consultants more accountable, and preserving our values, particularly as we see more land use regulation from Olympia.

During my long career at Deloitte (39 years), my primary roles included managing large & complex projects which involve ensuring all stakeholders are respected and have a voice in outcomes, establishing clear and repeatable processes, managing revenues and expenses, and having clear lines of responsibility and accountability.

As my career at Deloitte ends this summer, it would be a privilege to work on behalf of each of you, and to collaborate in an effective, productive manner with the new Mayor, City Council and City Administration.
