Redmond deserves a city council that works together for all residents. I have raised three children in Redmond, built deep connections across our community, and consistently been an effective advocate for our schools, parks, and public spaces. I am passionate about engaging youth in policymaking and have led efforts to engage dozens of teens in local politics.   


I will be a voice of reason and cooperation on the council – ensuring members are accountable and responsive to community members. My professional experience has trained me to collaborate and drive measurable results. I will focus on better solutions for affordable housing, climate change, and public safety to build an even more vibrant city for all.   


Endorsed by: 45th LD Democrats, Senator Dhingra, Representatives Goodman and Springer, Redmond Mayor Birney, former Mayor Marchione, Councilmembers Kritzer, Padhye and Carson, LWSD Board member Bliesner, and Eastside Business Alliance. I ask for your vote.

As a construction engineer and social entrepreneur, I help build sustainable communities around the world. I bring integrity, an open mind, and practical experience to the Council. I care about smart growth, environmental protection, community health, and good governance. Last term, I helped bring clean energy to city operations. I worked collaboratively to ensure effective stewardship of tax dollars. At all levels of government, I served as your champion for access to reliable transportation, broadband, and clean water.


As we restore the economy, I will advocate for housing equity, small businesses, living wages, and innovative technology. I will promote programs that provide connection, healing, and happiness. Together, we will enhance public safety, create job opportunities, and develop a thriving city! Thank you for your vote!
