Education: Bachelor’s in Mathematics from MIT
Occupation: Principal & Consulting Actuary, Milliman. Incumbent City Councilmember

Four years ago, I promised to protect what we love about Mercer Island while capitalizing on opportunities for positive change. I brought experience, creativity, and an open mind to meeting city challenges.  While serving on the Council, I have demonstrated a commitment to responsible financial management, sustainability and environmental protection, parks improvements, reliable city infrastructure,  school and community mental health counselors, locally controlled fire and police services, and transparent communication. 


In the next four years, I will continue working to ensure that  Council actions consistently reflect Mercer Island values: sustainability, inclusivity, parks and open spaces, public health and safety, and a dynamic retail core. My 38-year business career, Council service, and Planning Commission experience prepared me well to lead Mercer Island into the future.  I ask for your support.


Endorsements: State Legislators Lisa Wellman, My-Linh Thai, and Tana Senn.  Councilmembers David Rosenbaum, Wendy Weiker, and Ted Weinberg. Many other Islanders.

I am running for Council because our community deserves a Councilmember who will fight for our parks, protect our public safety, advocate for efficient Island services and ensure fiscal responsibility. As your Planning Commissioner, I have heard and responded to what’s important to Island residents. In 2022, I led the Yes to MI Parks campaign to expand and protect our parks. 


Islanders, you showed up at 72% voter turnout and agreed with me, voting overwhelmingly to rebuild our playgrounds, expand accessibility and reforest our open spaces – Thank You! If elected, I will bring these same ideals to Council, applying them to public safety, climate resilience, transportation, emergency preparedness, and fiscal sustainability. 


I will continue working hard for you and humbly request your vote. Endorsed by: Mayor Salim Nice, Councilmembers Lisa Anderl, Jake Jacobson, Former School Board President Ralph Jorgenson, MIPD Officers (Ret.), Moms For Safe MI, and many more.
