I grew up in Kenmore and returned to raise my children in my hometown. My priorities are environmental stewardship, sustainable development, community, and equity. 


Your vote matters. Democracy is about choices and the decisions we make together. I will listen to you and promote equitable decision-making on the Council. Engagement at the local level is critical toward building a fair and just society. I’m running to open the door and to inspire higher levels of participation and inclusion in our community. Together, we can address challenging issues and make Kenmore a model for the region as we grow and transition into a clean, green economic future. Serving you would be an honor. I hope to have your support. 


My endorsements: 46th District Democrats, U.S. Congresswoman Suzan DelBene, State Senator David Frockt, State Representatives Gerry Pollet and Javier Valdez, Kenmore Deputy Mayor Nigel Herbig, and many more.

Experience + Commitment = Safe, Affordable, Vibrant Kenmore


Our Citizens want a safe, affordable, family-friendly City that manages growth & traffic, improves our waterfront, and develops a vibrant walkable downtown. I have heard residents’ goals and dreams and will work for a Kenmore that is welcoming, environmentally responsible and fiscally focused.


As a business owner and former AT&T Executive, I have demonstrated skills in leadership, management, planning, budgeting, teamwork, and innovation. I have the drive and experience to achieve our goals and get things done. Proof of my commitment to Kenmore: Kenmore Planning Commission - Commissioner, Northshore Fire Commission – Chairman, Northshore Senior Center - Board VP, Kenmore Heritage Society – Board VP, Kenmore Business Alliance & Chamber - Ambassador, Mary’s Place - Volunteer. If elected, I will continue to listen to you and work tirelessly to turn your vision for Kenmore’s future into reality. I ask for your vote.
