As your councilwoman, I will work to keep our city a great place to raise families by promoting healthy communities, maintaining our parks, ensuring public safety, and improving our roads and sidewalks. I am committed to working with you to make Kent prosper.


I will implement tighter budget controls and ensure we are living within our means. My connections with work, Kent city government, local PTAs and faith communities, have given me experience in building partnerships and working with diverse groups in our community.


My volunteer service at the Severe Weather Shelter, on the Kent Drug Free Coalition, Kent Downtown Partnership Board, Civil Service Commission, and PTAs has taught me about balancing budgets and working together with colleagues to reach a common goal: continue making Kent a wonderful place to live. I am endorsed by Kent Fire Fighters, police officers, unions, council members, and community members.


I appreciate your vote!

The politics of politics simply isn’t working for our community. We need a community-driven government where everyone has a seat at the table and a voice in our city’s decisions.


As our community grows, we need to make sure everyone can afford to live and work here and make a living wage. For those experiencing homelessness, we need to have shelter and services available.  Our seniors deserve to feel safe in the homes and neighborhoods they’ve built and lived in for decades. Economic growth in our city by supporting local small businesses.


In addition, I will work to empower our youth and provide opportunities to transition from our high school system to quality jobs, apprenticeship programs, and colleges.


Endorsements: Mayor Cooke, Councilmembers  Budell and Fincher, King County Councilmember Gossett, Congressman Adam Smith, State Rep Gregerson, MLKCC Union, SEIU, Teamsters 117, former interim Police Chief Bailey, National Woman Political Caucus, more.
