In 2019, I was honored to be elected to Issaquah City Council, filling out an unexpired two-year term. I am proud of the Council’s 2020 achievements in response to COVID19. We decisively slowed the city’s financial freefall, supplied unprecedented levels of support for suddenly unemployed residents and struggling small businesses, and confronted the twin challenges of racial inequities and police reform. Issaquah proved itself a strong and resilient community, as everyone worked together to keep neighbors safe and healthy.


I’m eager to continue working with you to resolve our challenges, including the affordable housing and homeless crisis, climate change, needed transportation alternatives to congested roadways and a strong network of human services accessible to every resident.
