Occupation: General Counsel and CCO, CRISTA Ministries

As a lifelong resident, Shorecrest graduate, and father of three in Echo Lake, I intimately know Shoreline’s greatest assets and challenges. As board president of Vision House, a large local nonprofit that helps hundreds of homeless families secure permanent housing, I know how to address the crisis of homelessness and housing affordability.  


I will prioritize bringing more diverse businesses to Shoreline. Growing up in my family’s restaurant, I know how to attract small businesses with increased access to early education and improved parks, lighting, sidewalks, parking, community gathering spaces, and transit options.


It’s time for new, working solutions to issues that continue to go unsolved in Shoreline. I will work for a more sustainable, affordable, and equitable future. I hope I can earn your vote. Select Endorsements: Shoreline Mayors Will Hall, Shari Winstead, Keith McGlashan; our Democratic state legislators Senator Jesse Salomon, Representatives Lauren Davis, Cindy Ryu, and Ruth Kagi.

Education: Bachelor of Science Psychology, WSU, Post Grad in Psychology at UW and WWU
Occupation: Shoreline City Councilmember, former Boeing employee and SPEEA union member

Legacy:  I have served Shoreline for decades: I received two Golden Acorns for my work: the Syre playground and the Council’s Teen Gift Drive.


Experience matters!  In 2008 I won my City Council seat by removing an incumbent. Since then, I have built hundreds of professional relationships throughout King County and beyond.  To serve is one of the greatest experiences of my life. 


As Deputy Mayor, I have put in hours to protect our neighborhoods, parks, and public facilities. From my business experience, I know what creates succeed. As President and Treasurer for numerous PTA organizations, I learned of the importance of budgets and the process of creating new programs. Experience and trusted leadership is critical to ensure Shoreline feels like the Shoreline you fell in love with as we look towards the future. You have put your faith in me three times; I believe I have earned a fourth.

Occupation: Retired; formerly sales for ValPak and our family-owned business

Our family moved to Shoreline in 1981 because of the great schools and involved community.  I have volunteered in my neighborhood for many years - from Syre PTA President, coaching Hillwood soccer, Richmond Little League softball and now serving on the Shoreline Lake Forest Park Senior Center Board.  I am running for City Council to protect and preserve this woonderful city we all enjoy.  Here's how I plan to do that.


Listen, Discuss, Research, Act and Report on constituent priorities: individual, family, business, and community issues;  Help to solve the petty crime issues and improve the city's customer service, transparency and fiscal responsibility; Strengthen local neighborhoods in order to grow our evolving city.  I will listen to what each and every neighborhood needs and champion community-driven development.  Shoreline's future should be determined by planning today.


I'd appreciate being your voice on Shoreline's City Council.
