Renton has reached a pivotal point and it is time for change.  Decisions must benefit and support the continued improvement of our beautiful city. Renton deserves to thrive and that starts with executing the right strategy with the right priorities. Renton voices must be heard, and I want to listen and partner with you, Renton, to bring about the change we need.

We must do better to address crime, homelessness, and drug use.  Strong education for our youth is key for Renton’s future. Also, fiscally responsible economic development that supports small business is essential to driving good growth. It’s time for innovative and fresh ideas. I am ready to take on the challenge and make positive transformations.

As a concerned mom, wife, and resident, I'm committed to driving for changes that improve prosperity for all.  No hidden agendas.  Time to bring community together and create positive change.

Renton is a great city. I was captivated by everything it has to offer, leading me to start a YouTube series highlighting landmarks and businesses in and around Renton. Through the series, I connected with individuals across the city, inspiring me to deepen my involvement with various Renton-focused non-profits and pursue this position.

As your council member, I will address crime, enhance public safety, promote transparent governance, and work to improve housing affordability. With a decade of experience working on large-scale engineering projects, I bring thoughtfulness and rigor to my approach.

I don’t believe in handouts, but I do believe in providing opportunities for those willing to put in the work. My great grandfather immigrated from the Philippines to Seattle, and now, almost 100 years later, I am thrilled to run for elected office in this region.

Occupation: Wastewater Treatment Operator

My name is Michael Westgaard, and I’m running for City Council because of my lived experience and my belief that a better world is possible.


I grew up in poverty. Coming from a union background, I saw the difference that union representation made in providing stability. We are at a crossroads on public safety. The war on drugs has failed. With the passage of Crisis Care Centers, Missing Middle Housing, the State Budget, and the IRA, we have the opportunity to take a different path. We can expand treatment options, build housing, and serve people in need by addressing issues with compassion. Through my volunteer work I’d run into electeds that would oppose progress because they feared it was not the right time. We need a council that will fight for progress.


I am endorsed by the 11th LD Democrats, Raise the Wage Renton, Councilmember Carmen Rivera, KC Young Dems.
