Occupation: King County Councilmember

Thanks for the opportunity to serve as your King County Councilmember.  I take the job seriously and work hard to be a strong advocate for South King County-- a diverse community which is forward-thinking but squeezed economically.  I’ve seen a broken political system first hand, and refuse to bow to the political establishment, big donors, or party elites—but instead try to fearlessly question assumptions and be a voice for real people in a part of the county often left behind. With the mess at the federal level, the best thing I can do is simply do my job: balance the county budget, respond to community needs, treat people with respect, demonstrate common sense, honor our civic institutions like a free press and independent courts, and strive to be authentic and responsive to the people I represent. I love serving our community and would be honored to have your vote.
