Black Diamond is one of the few remaining small towns in our ever growing urban landscape. We are blessed to have such a rich history and abundance of natural resources within our city limits. Our local community is responsible for the stewardship of these resources to ensure they remain for future generations to enjoy. We must work within the framework of our local government to achieve the outcomes we desire.


The Black Diamond council should work with and for the residents of Black Diamond to provide a safe and vibrant city for residents to enjoy. It goes without saying that our diverse community is filled with a multitude of differing opinions on how to create, maintain and secure this corner of King County that we all call home. As your representative on the city council, I will work to ensure your voice is counted, each and every time we vote.

This is a challenging time for Black Diamond citizens. Reading, studying the issues, and meeting with city staff is my plan. I will be informed and involved in decisions about the ongoing development. I will bring civility, cooperation, and calm to our City Council, and keep my community interactions positive. We can pull together to address our current and future issues, fulfill our obligations, and ensure public safety. I will roll up my sleeves and get the work of the city done on time.


I was raised in Seattle and have fond memories of visiting my grandmother in Black Diamond. James, my husband of 38 years and I, have raised our children here since 1994. We are proud grandparents. We both earned degrees from local colleges and went into the field of nursing. James previously served in the US Coast Guard. We are active members in our church.

Corporate development interests are challenging our way of life in Black Diamond and pitting neighbor against neighbor.
Change is inevitable, but positive change is based on democratic principles.  Most residents know that a large fast growing Black Diamond is not positive change. 
Growth needs to be managed to ensure there are no negative effects on current residents, families and businesses.  Developers should not be subsidized by residents and taxpayers.
Spending and contracting need to be brought under control.  Taxes and fees need to be brought under control.  Rules that protect our environment need to be fairly enforced.  
Black Diamond is a unique and historic town.  We are like a big family, and families must be honest with each other.  Our differences will be resolved through mutual respect.  
I would be honored to represent you on the Council.  I appreciate your vote and respect your decision.  Thank you.
