We have an opportunity to come together, roll-up our sleeves, and build a stronger, more equitable Seattle. I’ve dedicated my career to building coalitions and getting results by bringing diverse perspectives to the table, and passing progressive policy to challenge the status quo.


In my first term, together we passed progresive policies to make Seattle more equitable and just. I led the broad coalition to pass JumpStart Progressive revenue creating over $214 million annually for housing, small businesses, equitable development, and Green New Deal investments. I passed wage & leave standards for ap-based drivers, workplace & healthcare protections for hotel workers, hazard pay for grocery workers, and the nationally acclaimed Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. I passed energy efficient standards for City buildings, and funding for more affordable housing in Seattle, to address carbon emissions and climate injustice. 


After earning 56% of the primary election vote, I hope to have your support again to return to help small businesses, workers, and our environment to improve the health & stability of Seattlites. I will fight for more affordable housing across our city, police accountability, upstream investments in homelessness prevention strategies, and for workers and small businesses simultaneously to create a more equitable Seattle.

It’s an honor to serve you in these challenging times. As a lifelong advocate for children and working people, the daughter of educators, wife, and new mom of a beautiful babé, I am committed to building a future Seattle where all can be housed, healthy & safe.

We all feel the Council is leading in the wrong direction.  Incumbent politicians have yet to find solutions for increasing homelessness, failed roads and infrastructure, and closed businesses.  Most lack training in understanding day-to-day operations required for a thriving city.  I am asking for your vote to bring plain speaking, common-sense solutions to replace current mismanagement.


I am a 28-year resident of Seattle, my wife and two daughters were born here.  I am a licensed bridge structural engineer (PE SE) owning a Seattle small business since 2005.  Current work includes the Northgate truss bridge over I-5 and pedestrian bridges over SR520 near Microsoft.  As your council member, I will lean heavily on my analytical, engineering, and infrastructure background to bring rational decision making and progress control follow up to Council actions.


Frustrated, I watched as downtown became lawless and boarded, 911 response times increased from lack of staffing, a good police chief was forced to resign, and West Seattle shut off from the rest of the city due to poor maintenance and continual mistakes in administration of valuable infrastructure.  Our homeless challenges became extreme and unaided, while parks and schools were made inaccessible as living space sanctuaries for addiction and mental problems.  With each new development we lost critical canopy/old trees along with affordable rental housing, replaced five-to-one by unaffordable homes stressing existing sewers.


Seattle needs a council member trained in infrastructure to ensure the city is improved, supported, and made better for everyone.  West Seattle cannot continue to have access blocked.  Homelessness must be addressed immediately.  Most importantly, all people must be dealt with compassionately but consistently in justice commensurate with the problem.

I am proud to live in Seattle.  I have the background needed to help bring back the city we love.  I would appreciate your vote!
