I have lived nearly my entire life in Medina, and my granddaughters are fifth-generation Medina residents when they are over for a visit. Medina has grown and changed gracefully, and I am committed to ensuring that it continues its quiet pace of evolution. Major changes are coming through new state legislation that requires cities to embrace “middle housing.” I plan to use my background in housing planning and economics in general, and middle housing specifically, to help Medina comply with new state requirements in ways that preserve what we love best about our city.


I also plan to continue the work of ensuring Medina’s long term fiscal stability. Washington’s tax code makes it challenging for cities to keep up with inflation and growing demands for services, and we need creative solutions.


It will be a pleasure to return to the council and join an excellent group of colleagues.
