Why I'm Running


Dear Neighbors,

I’m running for the Kent City Council because you deserve an active and engaged Councilmember who will show up and get to work on your behalf. Kent residents deserve a Councilmember who is committed to ensuring they always have a voice at the table and representation at City Hall. I’ve spent my career advocating for real people and solutions that benefit our community. Currently, I work in the King County Assessor’s office where I administer the senior citizen and veteran’s property tax exemption. I see firsthand the implication of rising property taxes on those most vulnerable in our community. Too often I see folks picking between their medications and their tax bills – a decision folks shouldn’t have to make.

I believe we must continue to live within our means while still providing the high quality services our residents have come to depend on. Everything we do hinges on having a safe community – it is why I pledge to continue to expand and improve our police department. Ensuring we drive down crime while meeting the needs and expectations of our residents is the paramount duty of local government. Additionally, I will advocate for continued investments in our vibrant parks system and human services programs.

I’m looking forward to meeting you over the course of our campaign and hearing your thoughts and ideas for how we make Kent an even better place to live.

I’d be honored to have your support and your vote.
