Being Successful Together- As your Deputy Mayor and Budget Chair, I have brought meaningful reform to city government and collaboratively tackled the City’s tough issues. I will redouble these efforts as your Mayor.


Preserving the Character of LFP- I will continue to work with you to improve our code to protect the natural environment and character of LFP as we face increased density and Sound Transit expansion.


Pedestrian Safety- I will keep on advocating for reduced speeds, safer crossings and sidewalks to help mitigate the rising tide of traffic. Championing the Environment – I will persist in ensuring additional protections to our natural environment. With strong support from the community, I authored of one of Washington’s most comprehensive plastics ordinances and facilitated the acquisition of nine acres of parkland. I would be honored with your support. Endorsements: King County Democrats, First Legislative Democrats, Humane Voters of Washington, LFP Town Crier.

LFP looks a bit different than it did 8 years ago when I became your mayor. We’ve accomplished quite a bit: Added 3 new parks; Earned safest city ratings; Installed critical culverts; Navigated COVID with no layoffs and minimal service disruption; Stabilized finances; Created a new environmental task force; Brought back community-building events

But there’s still much to do: Complete more upstream culverts; Minimize the impact of Sound Transit; Develop the waterfront park property for everyone; Fund our police department and city safety; Address local environmental issues (trees, etc.)

Our city remains a destination for people and families seeking a safe and friendly place to live. My job is to keep it that way, and be there for all 13,500 of you. You should all feel safe when you go to sleep at night. Thank you for allowing me to serve. Let’s continue working together to move our city forward.
