It’s been my honor and privilege to serve on the Kent City Council for the past sixteen years and I look forward to serving our citizens for another four. Kent has seen many changes over the years as it has grown from a village; to a town and now is Washington State’s sixth largest city.


I’m proud of Kent’s many recent accomplishments including the YMCA which is under construction; expansion of Green River College; high paying job opportunities with the growth of companies like Blue Origin; and new projects like “Meet me on Meeker”.


Challenges facing our Council include traffic congestion; homelessness; and budget constraints while lessening the tax burden for all citizens. With your help and your vote, I pledge to continue listen to and serving you, the citizens of Kent.

I'm proud to call Kent home, and I'm passionate about making Kent an even better place to live, work, and raise a family. 

With 23 years of professional experience in industries spanning manufacturing, logistics, sales and education, I volunteer my skills on the boards of KYFS, Kent YMCA, Kent Schools Foundation, Rotary Club, and Veterans, Seniors, and Human Services Levy Advisory Board. 


No matter what the challenge, I’m excited to apply my experience as a community leader to help make our city stronger for everyone. Kent needs to have good transportation infrastructure, be environmentally concerned, and continue efforts to reduce homelessness. Good fiscal management is a must, while continuing to invest in effective youth programs. Public safety is a high priority and using new technologies can improve services.
