Growing To Greatness Asking for your vote to keep Covington moving forward with clear purpose and vision. Covington is #1 in SE King County. We have a new hospital, Costco, Covington Community Park, future Town Center property. We will have a vibrant destination downtown. Being fiscally conservative, we refinanced a road project that saved you a million $. Police officers added past two budget cycles, committed to add more. Streets/right of ways are maintained. We have the lowest allowed sales tax in King County.


I build regional relationships to benefit Covington. I serve on South King Housing and Homelessness Partnership Exec Board, co-chair WRIA 9 (Green/Duwamish) Ecosystem Forum for endangered Chinook salmon recovery, WRIA 9 Management Committee, King County Flood Control District Advisory Council.


Endorsements: Kent, Auburn, Maple Valley, Fed Way, Covington Mayors. KC Exec Dow Constantine. 2011: Firefighters, Labor/Teacher Unions, conservation organizations and Woman's Political Caucus

I love Covington. 13 years ago we made the decision to raise our young boys here. However, the challenges facing Covington today are different than when the incumbent took office over a decade ago. I’m running because the city council needs to focus on Covington’s new challenges. 

As a mom, what I see happening downtown concerns me, especially after riding along with our police after dark. Without action, crime is spreading to our neighborhoods. Cities that aren’t safe aren’t beautiful. Parks full of paraphernalia aren’t safe. We cannot ignore this.

Together we must focus on Covington’s new concerns, including traffic congestion. Developers have made commitments to pay for congestion-relief; they must honor these commitments. 13 years ago, Covington was a place for families, but today we face new risks that require new focus, and new leadership. If you agree, I’d be honored to receive your vote. My cell is 206-227-1856
