It’s been an honor to serve as your Councilmember, and I’m running again so that, together, we can continue to build a future that includes all of us. I’ve got the experience to organize community-centered approaches and I secure the investments to match. I deliver on progressive values rather than simply profess them.


My office has a proven track record of taking action. I committed to investing in historically under-funded schools, so I funded mental health and leadership programs in Southend schools. I said I would prevent displacement, so we won tenant protections, monumental worker protections—like paid sick leave for gig workers—and rent control for small businesses. I secured permanent funding for community-driven development, and for the Green New Deal.


I envision housing abundance, affordability, and vibrant small businesses within reach of all generations who stay rooted in their community. Children with full stomachs and single mothers with full wallets. Community networks preventing violence rather than only reacting to it. I’ve only just begun building alternatives to punishment and incarceration—especially for our Black and brown neighbors, who suffer from the paradox of over-policing and under-policing.


We all deserve to feel safe in our neighborhoods. As a mom with two kids in Seattle Public Schools, it’s important that all our children feel safe, protected, and cared for. We’ve only begun that work by investing in the resources District 2 needs to improve our community health, joy, and safety.


Thank you for electing me to serve D2’s vibrant communities. I hope to earn your vote for re-election.


Proudly endorsed by The Stranger, MLK Labor, King County Dems, Progreso Latino, Rep. Jayapal, Sen. Saldaña, and over 40 more.

Occupation: Business Owner, Community Advocate

I grew up in Beacon Hill, work at my family business in the Chinatown International District and now live in Rainier Beach.  I’ve seen how South Seattle has changed, and I’ve seen what happens to neighborhoods who don’t have a voice. I want to change that.


As a community advocate and proven leader I have fought against continued discrimination from the city towards one of the most endangered neighborhoods in America, and I’ve seen that fighting for our voice and community based solutions is a fight we can win. I'll bring that same passion to fight for all of south Seattle.


We can have better public safety. Every week, my watch group works side by side with community and unhoused neighbors providing mutual aid and helping connect people to essential services. I have administered Narcan, CPR and fought for our most vulnerable, marginalized communities. We need a balanced approach that invests in community programs and works in collaboration with city agencies. 


We can have more affordable housing while fighting displacement and gentrification. My family renovated the historic Louisa Hotel into workforce housing which only charges residents a percentage of their income so nobody is charged rent they cannot afford. I have the experience to build more homes and social housing. 


Our community is tired of elected officials always responding with words and good intentions that yield no results. Things aren’t getting better, it’s time for a change. We need leaders who are not afraid of the streets of South Seattle, who will be there for our community when it’s hard, to listen and make a real difference. I promise to show up, listen, and always be there to fight for you.
