First, thanks to everyone who voted for me the last election.  I won’t waste time; Tukwila crime is worse than 99% of Washington State. Tukwila needs change. Now!  I'm serving on the Tukwila Police Advisory Board, but they need support from our elected leaders.  I'll prioritize funding to ensure Tukwila is safe so people and businesses can prosper.

Career politicians work together to retain power and prevent change. Don't believe endorsements by those supporting the status quo. Change is needed. I’ll succeed in retaining our small community feel, while bringing more businesses and opportunity to Tukwila.

For the past 25 years, I've been in multiple leadership and governance roles for international organizations--leading teams in finance, marketing, and strategy. I want to focus those skills to help Tukwila thrive. I have the experience and motivation to move Tukwila in a positive direction. Vote Jay Stark so I can serve you.

For 13 years I’ve worked to make Tukwila regionally competitive, with a strong and diversified economic foundation.  I have walked through our neighborhoods, speaking and listening to neighbors, community leaders, and businesses.  I have a passion for putting people first.  Public service is community service. 


I believe that today, Tukwila is more vibrant, welcoming, and innovative than ever.  But there’s still work to do. I will work to further opportunities where everyone cares for their community, their neighborhoods and each other, and ensure safety for all. Let us stand together for progress working for the common good!  Tukwila is a place for all.


17 years ago, my wife and I moved our family here, drawn by the diverse neighborhoods and thriving economic base. We remain here because of our deep commitment to the city, and we’re proud to call it home. I ask for your vote to continue serving you.
