As your councilmember, I have collaborated to ensure Tukwila’s future by creating opportunities citywide, supporting our schools, and providing an environment where employers can create family wage jobs to support existing workers and our next generation.


In my tenure, I have focused on: crafting policies to keep our city safe; making investments in police, firefighters, code enforcement, transportation, and education; supporting and improving our neighborhoods; and representing all residents, no matter language, culture, or how long they’ve called Tukwila home.


Every day, whether meeting with neighbors, visiting small businesses or volunteering, I use our shared values as a bridge to a better, rising Tukwila. My focus is on uniting our community.


I am your councilmember, neighbor, a husband, and father who, like you, wants Tukwila to thrive. Now I am asking for your vote.


Endorsed by: Congressman Adam Smith, Councilmembers; Joe Duffie, Verna Seal, Kathy Hougardy, Kate Kruller, Thomas McLeod.

Politicians are just not listening. Our current career politicians believe they're entitled to exclusive expense-paid retreats and trips. They're out of touch with the people of Tukwila. In this non-partisan race, I'm running to be an independent voice and to restore ethics and accountability to the Tukwila City Council.


Tukwila's schools rank 168th out of 203 districts. For the sake of our children, we need major improvements in our schools.


Tukwila's crime rate is almost five times the statewide average: we must fully support our police. When elected, I will assist in providing keen oversight of our new Justice Center and renovation of our fire stations: we must fully support our firefighters.


Single-family housing is a cornerstone of Tukwila families and should be a priority as we continue to grow into a prosperous future.


Endorsements: Sharon Mann, Louise Strander, Sandi Mills, Merilyn Wetzler, Kevin Gaw, Gabby Maceda, Ray Phillips.
