As a mother, a Girl Scout Leader, an attorney representing cities and your City Councilmember, my highest priorities are protecting our quality of life and creating a bright future for everyone who calls Bellevue “home.” I’ve used my experience to deliver on these priorities by protecting neighborhoods from unmitigated growth and funding neighborhood improvement projects focused on transportation and safety.


I’m proud that our Council has lead Bellevue through unprecedented economic growth. Our city finances have never been healthier, giving us the opportunity to make Bellevue even better, including: spending more money for public safety, smarter transportation investments, caring for our most vulnerable, increasing our commitment to affordable housing, expanding our parks system, developing a new regional aquatics center, and implementing environmentally-sensitive practices for a healthy, sustainable future. These achievements demonstrate my willingness to work hard, find common ground with fellow leaders, and move us successfully through complex issues.


I’m honored by the trust the community has placed in me to be your Councilmember these past 10 years. I humbly ask for your vote to continue as Your Voice on the Bellevue City Council.

As a lifelong Washingtonian and a Bellevue resident of 30 years I care about many of the same things you do. The environment, social justice, a strong economy. I want my children, and my neighbor’s children to grow up here and take care of Bellevue after us.


We have serious issues to resolve to keep this a city worth living in. Traffic is terrible, housing is unaffordable. Too many of our citizens fall into homelessness and have a hard time climbing back out. I believe we can do better, and want to serve to make it so. A few changes can and will make a world of difference:

An increase in the minimum wage starting at $15/hr; An increase in bus service designed to penetrate the neighborhoods and provide realistic options for driving. Replace the current policy of inducing affordable housing with tax reductions. It’s not working. Open consideration of a Public Utility District. Puget Sound Energy has been less than responsive on new projects (see 300 trees and Energize Eastside) and engages in foot-dragging on replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy.

Occupation: Attorney and small business owner

I am dedicated to helping Bellevue to be the best city it can possibly be. In 1985, when my mother was looking for the best place to raise her child, she found Bellevue.  I now have a six year old child of my own. He attends a Bellevue Public School and I recognize that his future and the future of his classmates will be linked to the direction that we choose for our great city.   


Bellevue has grown in size and diversity.  I believe that our diversity is our strength.  Together, we can bring innovative ideas that help us overcome whatever challenges we face.  We can successfully address our traffic woes, push for affordable housing, develop living wages for service workers and protect our green spaces.  In doing so, our future will look bright.


I firmly believe that elected officials should work hard to make sure that the government is both transparent and accountable to the people.  I have previously worked with organizations that are dedicated to protecting civil and human rights for all by working with local governments to achieve positive outcomes.
