I was born into the silent sheltered shame of domestic violence. My lived-experience as both the survivor and aftermath of multisystemic failures to protect the vulnerable is a testimony on behalf of silent victims. My Life Purpose is to hold space for those who lack power or voice. We must remove the money from the power if we desire candidates whose waves will lift all boats, not just stakeholders’.


I support term limits and salary caps relative to area median incomes to keep our leaders’ accountable/relatable. I envision institutional reformation with participatory budgeting. We cannot marginalize the role the system has played in our generational traumas. We must aim towards reparative models with respect and humility. The violent crime cannot be curbed with human sweeps or pepperspray. We must treat the root cause: our mental health and addiction crisis. We warrant a new approach; candidates with different competencies.  I will push to expand the RADAR program and to create a King County Regional Treatment Facility so that drug-fueled crimes can have treatment-focused sentences. We need transitional, supportive and permanent affordable housing; reintegration instead of revolving doors.


I Believe that any person willing to contribute to the Public Good should not struggle to keep their lights on or pay rent. We need to grow our King County Conservation Corps towards more opportunity for stability, to rid our public streets, greenbelts and waterways of garbage, to weed-out invasives, plant native trees, protect pollinators, and to drastically expand local plastic recycling. In the face of a fragile global supply chain, we must invest in green industries like rain barrels to empower food sovereignty. We necessitate a county-wide tree ordinance.


We must let the sun set on the cycles of abuse and wanton refuse. The fate of tomorrow rests in the interventions of today.
