Education: University of Washington School of Law, Order of Barristers; Arizona State University, Magna Cum Laude
Occupation: County Councilmember; Former Federal Prosecutor; National Coordinator, Project Safe Neighborhoods

I am troubled by the dramatic increase in crime and homelessness in King County, and I believe we can do better. I am one of the few voices fighting to give law enforcement the tools they need to do their jobs, pushing to fund the criminal justice system and keep it accountable, and working with communities to remove dangerous homeless encampments while connecting those who live in them with holistic services.


I am also the only member of the County Council with real crime fighting experience, having spent years working for the Department of Justice. I was appointed by a U.S. President and served as a Federal Prosecutor with Top Secret clearance. I also worked in the Terrorism and Violent Crime Unit of the U.S. Attorney’s office, and led the Justice Department’s national initiative to fight gun violence. This background is important as the County Council now has oversight of the Sheriff’s Office. King County needs a Councilmember who understands how to keep our neighborhoods safe.


I am honored that The Seattle Times, all eight mayors in our district, and our police and firefighters have endorsed me, because they know this experience is needed. “Dunn’s independence, effectiveness and experience will be even more valuable as the county redoubles its efforts to fight homelessness, and increase transparency and eliminate inequities in law enforcement and criminal justice…Dunn continues to be the best choice” (Seattle Times, July 16, 2021).


I promise to continue to work in a bipartisan manner to fight crime, reduce homelessness, protect the environment, recover from the pandemic, keep your taxes low, and continue to help those who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction.


I am honored to be your advocate on the King County Council, I work for you, and I appreciate your vote.

Education: BAs, Sociology and Law, Societies, & Justice, University of Washington; JD, University of Dayton
Occupation: Renton City Councilmember, Small Business Owner, and Attorney

As a refugee from Vietnam, my family came here seeking a better future. Working multiple jobs, and the first in my family to graduate college, I value hard work, the importance of opportunity, and strength of community. 


Our district deserves leadership committed to these same principles, a County Councilmember who addresses unique challenges facing our suburban, unincorporated, and rural communities. Unfortunately, after 16 years of the same, our district is missing representation in touch with local priorities and willing to embrace opportunities for regional progress.


I’m the only candidate for this position with a proven track record as an elected official and small business owner. I’ve expanded access to apprenticeships and career pathways on the Renton Technical College Foundation Board; advocated for seniors and Veterans through Sound Cities Senior, Aging and Disability Council. I volunteer as a military JAG and support Veterans through the VFW and Wounded Warrior Project. I’ve worked towards an inclusive region for all on the King County Coalition Against Hate and Bias. I’m also a mom and PTA President.


With your vote, I’ll build on my record of leadership on the Renton City Council to coordinate regional action on homelessness and affordable housing, make overdue transit and transportation improvements, ensure fiscal responsibility, stand up for struggling local businesses, and step up safeguards protecting our climate and quality of life. As we rebuild trust in our Sheriff’s Office, I will demand needed public safety improvements, support for victims, and hire officers who reflect our communities, as I have in Renton. Together, we can recover, grow, and move our region forward.


Endorsed: Washington Conservation Voters; Alliance for Gun Responsibility; SEIU 1199NW healthcare workers; Executive Constantine; Treasurer Pellicciotti; Senators Das, Wellman, and Kauffman (fmr.); Representatives Bergquist, Thai, Entenman, Santos, and Maxwell (fmr.); Councilmembers; School Board Members; more!
