Serving Houghton as your councilmember is an honor and privilege, allowing me to preserve Houghton’s charm and livability as well as our property rights.

As a councilmember, retired Marine Corps Reserve Colonel and former volunteer probation officer for Bellevue, I have a proven record as a leader. Houghton is a diverse neighborhood, welcoming to all. As a 30-year Houghton resident who has journeyed the world over for military and business travel, I realize more than most just how much of a gem Houghton is. The Houghton Council is empowered to ensure that Houghton’s residents have an inclusive voice in important land use decisions.  I listened when residents said that marijuana stores shouldn’t be allowed within 100 feet of preschools and when they said that zoning shouldn’t be changed to allow duplexes and triplexes throughout Houghton without due process.

Your vote will allow me to continue to stand up for Houghton.

With our parks, shops, and proximity to high-paying jobs, our neighborhoods represent the best of Kirkland. Unfortunately, the lack of transportation options and the housing crisis show how our planning policies fail to meet all of our needs. These issues continue because the council listens to those they agree with instead of the community as a whole.

If elected, I will work with community members and the city government to remove the policies that lower our quality of life. Allowing more people to live closer to work will reduce emissions and traffic congestion. Ensuring every street has sidewalks and street lights will improve safety and walkability. Letting homeowners build neighborhood stores will make our community more livable and generate extra income for homeowners. With your support, we can ensure everyone is safe, housed, and enjoys a high quality of life.

Endorsements: State Representatives Walen and Slatter, State Senator Kuderer
