The people of Auburn have a choice. Do we continue the same old tactics to solve our modern day issues, or do we fight for a new progressive direction for our city?




Income and Wealth Inequality, Women's Rights, Quality Public Education, Racial Justice, Affordable Housing, A Living Wage


Our middle class is in a decline. As Mayor I will fight for the rights of workers to collectively bargain for better wages and benefits. Women's Rights are being attacked we will take a stand and combat these attacks in solidarity with real policy of our own. I intend to stand by our school district against defunding that is possible in the near future. Many types of violence are waged against people of color and indigenous Americans. Many of Auburn residents are spending 50 percent or more on housing. As Mayor it will be my priority to address these injustices.

Occupation: Deputy Mayor of the City of Auburn

As I look around Auburn, I see a shabby downtown, rough roads, and extensive homelessness. As Mayor, I will make desperately needed decisions within existing funds to clean and make safe our neighborhoods, deal aggressively with homelessness, and improve the maintenance of our roads. Auburn's leadership needs to focus on projects that support our best interest, instead of funneling millions of dollars to regional projects such as ST3, a hospital in Tacoma, and Heroin Injection Sites that provide minimal benefits to our community.


I know I have the experience, collaborative leadership style, and the support of four of the six council members to take badly needed action. On my first day in office I will work with our businesses and community groups to re-create a thriving community.


I ask for your vote, to work with you, for you! Visit
