I’ve been privileged to serve you over the past eight years. As the district implements its first strategic plan in more than two decades, I’ll ensure that we listen to students and families and partner with teachers so that every student can reach their highest potential. To do that, we’ll need to communicate transparently and emphasize financial accountability as we discuss funding to complete our newest high school to address the continued overcrowding at Issaquah and Skyline high schools.


Over the next four years, I’ll continue to advocate for increased early learning and dual language opportunities, special education funding, and social-emotional and mental health supports. I want to focus our district’s work to reimagine pathways to college and career for every student. For those who don’t want to pursue four-year college, we need to partner with industry and provide opportunities to graduate with certifications and experience in skilled trades to directly enter the workforce.


I ask for your vote so that our district continues to invest in the success of each student and maximizes every tax dollar to create safe learning environments for students and staff.
