50 years ago, in 1971, the Tukwila Pool opened.

The vision of the Tukwila Pool is to contribute to the quality of life for our community, and for future generations, through welcoming, fun, safe and positive aquatic experiences.

During my first term, along with my fellow commissioners and the Tukwila Pool Operations team, we started our "3rd Saturday Events" to encourage families and community to engage with the Pool. Over the past 6 years we've hosted such themes as, "Pumpkin Plunge,” “April Pools Day," and "Cardboard Boat Races." Quality instructed swim lessons and other programs meet the needs of our diverse community. Financial viability is crucial to our pool's continued success. Our debt will soon be paid off, and we are starting discussions on how we can best serve our community for the next 50 years. I again ask for your vote as your voice for transparency, efficiency, and responsiveness.
