Sammamish is a beautiful, growing, and diverse community.  With growth comes the need to keep pace via capital and service enhancements to preserve our quality of life .  I will continue to listen to concerns and implementing tangible changes to complex issues.  I will continue to serve as your advocate at City Hall, and dutifully manage finances.  


I will continue elevating environmental concerns, work with regional partners, and advocate for all residents of Sammamish to ensure our future creates the best community possible.  I am committed to the highest level of communication and interaction with residents, thoughtful consideration of our community character, providing enhancements to meet our community’s needs, while listening and working collaboratively with stakeholders.


I’ll continue to work hard to make Sammamish the best place to live, work, and play.  Thank you for your vote. Endorsed by King County Police Officers Guild, Issaquah Mayor Pauly and many residents.

I'm running for Sammamish City Council because I see the potential our community has to offer. We need leaders who are willing to listen. Sammamish has been my home for 39 years, and as a real estate broker, I help others find their home in Sammamish too.


We've seen the concerns of residents discounted too often. I promise to respect your voice and listen to our community's concerns. Sammamish is a growing city with important decisions ahead of us. We need leaders who will represent us and manage Sammamish's growth in positive ways. I'm excited to bring my business experience, leadership as Sammamish Chamber of Commerce President, and my years in this community to City Council. I would be honored to earn your vote.
