As a nearly life-long resident of Des Moines, I have a history of bringing community and government together to solve challenging issues. Twice you have honored me with your vote to put those skills to good use.


As your City Council member and Mayor, I have helped lead the way to prioritizing key government services, particularly ensuring community safety. Under my leadership, we have worked hard to provide long-term financial stability to the City.


My focus remains on the city’s revitalization. When re-elected, I will continue to partner with citizens, community groups and businesses to understand and listen to concerns, providing your input during the decision making process. We must continue to move forward together, improving the city’s business climate, while being sensitive to the needs and desires of its citizens.


I again ask for the honor of your vote, so we can continue to revitalize our wonderful waterfront city.

Des Moines is a great city that I've been a proud resident of since I was 11. That being said, I believe strongly that with a fresh set of ideas and a forward-thinking approach, we can become even greater. This is why I'm running for city council; to help revitalize and improve our city.


As a father, I consider myself lucky to live in Des Moines, and to be able to raise my kids in such a wonderful community. However, we can do more to improve the lives of residents, making it both a safer and more enjoyable place to live: This includes increasing police funding, establishing a community center, expanding Parks, Recreations and Senior Services, enhancing the business climate, making Marina parking free for those who live in Des Moines, and raising the minimum wage.


I'm endorsed by the King County Labor Council, King County Democrats, and many others.
