I am honored to be your City Councilmember. Over the last 15 years, I’ve made a home in Snoqualmie with my family. My nearly two decades as a community volunteer and 20 years of business management experience has prepared me to be a thoughtful, experienced, and effective leader.


My mission is to preserve, protect, and enhance our Snoqualmie way of life. I support options to expand the community center with a pool without increasing taxes. I will continue to advocate for the dedicated I-90 on-ramp, improvements to manage congestion and safety at our exits, construction of I-90/SR18 interchange and funding for widening SR18. I support strengthening economic development by diversifying our tax base through tourism and affordable housing for our workforce and seniors.


I am proud of my endorsements from Representative Ramos, County Councilmember Lambert, Snoqualmie Firefighters Local 2878, Snoqualmie Mayor Larson, and six Snoqualmie Councilmembers.  Please vote for me.

In 2 years on council, the incumbent has approved development of 63 acres: over 600 hotel rooms/residences, $30M bond obligation and maximum property tax increases. Traffic studies consider only two blocks from developments, completely ignoring what hundreds more cars on Snoqualmie Parkway will do to traffic along its three miles. Cities are crucial in reducing green house gasses.


Why are city property taxes raised to the maximum? Why are water/sewer utility bills so high? I respect how hard you work for your money and your time! After a long hard commute, and running children to appointments you shouldn’t be stuck in traffic here at home. The incumbent acts like you have plenty of money to give to the city, and plenty of time and patience to put up with overcrowding.


You deserve better than this poor treatment. It’s time for thoughtful challenge, not rubber-stamping. I’ll work hard to support you!
