Twelve years ago, like many of you, we chose LFP as our home because of its unique natural beauty and community commitment to protecting a healthy ecosystem.  I am seeking a second term to continue listening to and representing our community values and priorities on the city council and throughout the region.


I pledge to continue working diligently to keep LFP a wonderful, thriving, welcoming place with safer streets and highways, while also protecting our urban forest; enact measures to ensure right-sized, sensible and environmentally sensitive redevelopment of our Town Center; hold Sound Transit accountable to voters by being a fierce advocate for adequate and appropriate transit and commuter parking that benefits our residents; and, balance the urgent need for more affordable housing with our community character and essential environmental protections.


Endorsements: State Senator Frockt, State Representatives Pollet and Valdez, County Councilmembers Dembowski and Kohl-Wells, KC and 46th District Democrats.
