Adaptability is key to successful growth for every functional system, and the City of Renton is no exception. We need to develop an adaptable workforce skilled to meet the demands of the ever-changing industries within our city limits and its neighboring cities.


I plan to introduce inclusive housing policies that will allow landlords to engage in safe, affordable housing practices, while also pushing for initiatives to construct affordable housing, avoid gentrification and keep our residents in their homes.


With the experience of living and working all over the world, I will bring a different perspective on how to foster a thriving diverse community. I intend to advocate for finance literacy, promote financial empowerment, including entrepreneurship trainings, especially of our marginalized population. A stable community makes a safe community. Let’s tackle the problems at their roots. I ask for your vote to be your advocate for change, empowerment and inclusion.
