As a lifelong Federal Way resident and homeowner, I've witnessed our city change incredibly. From public safety and economic development to housing and schools, our city faces real challenges but also many opportunities. 


I will work to better manage growth with the infrastructure to support it. Future development must be mindful of impacts to schools, businesses, traffic patterns, and neighborhoods. 


Priorities include developing a strong local economy with living-wage jobs and support for small business; preserving family-friendly, inclusive neighborhoods; improving public safety and reducing crime; strengthening City/School District relations and increasing access to job training programs.


We need leaders that bring new energy, accountability and renewed dedication to the community from the city. Once elected, my work will focus on ensuring that families, youth and businesses are successful and thriving here in Federal Way.


Endorsements: Congressman Adam Smith, Our Local Firefighters, Representative Kristine Reeves, King County Labor Council, and more.
