Since being unanimously appointed last year, I've been hard at work for you. I've earned a reputation for asking tough questions, researching the issues, and stopping votes when I need more information. I make informed decisions and ensure residents have a watchdog at City Hall.

I've trudged through mud with Kent Police Officers to see homeless camps firsthand, met with employers and educators on workforce training needs, and regularly advocate for residents on individual issues.

My problem-solving approach has earned me two regional appointments that are important to Kent – the King County Aging and Disabilities Advisory Council and the newly formed King County Affordable Housing Committee. I'm also a working, commuting, mom and wife who brings this perspective to City Hall. Together, we can make Kent a better place for all of us. I'm endorsed by Mayor Dana Ralph, my fellow Councilmembers, City Employee Union, and local labor organizations.

I love the city of Kent! That said, Kent is growing, and growing fast. We need to focus on Safety, Stewardship (Fiscal & Environmental) and Service. As a member of the City of Kent Police Diversity Task Force, a Commissioner on the City of Kent Parks and Rec Commission, Deacon of my Kent-based church, and Director of my homeowner’s association, I am known as a problem solver, collaborator and common-sense thinker.


On the City Council, Safety, Stewardship (Fiscal & Environmental) and Service will be my compass. I will fight for public safety, parks, fair taxes, responsible community development, job creation and homelessness solutions.


Tanieka (my wife) and I are so proud of our 5 kids and have called East Hill home since 2012. I am deeply vested in the City of Kent will ensure we respect our past while maximizing our future. I would be proud to have your vote.

I have the great fortune of sharing this diverse and beautiful city with you. I am seeking the opportunity to serve as your advocate for positive change. As a parent of three school aged kids I am motivated to make Kent a better place for current and future residents. My personal history is a part of the rich history of Kent.  In my view, the lack of affordable housing and the rising crime rate are barriers for the success of the community.  My priority will be to lead the council towards business strategies which provide long-term sustainable funding solutions.

I have an inclusive leadership style strengthened by years of professional experience in behavioral health, affordable care enrollment, housing advocacy for families and helping children and families navigate the foster care system.  

Please support the fight to preserve the economic vitality of our city.
