My goal is to aid the citizens of Shoreline with my knowledge of city government and my commitment to all Shoreline citizens. I want to make Shoreline a viable place for businesses to create family-wage jobs that build strong communities. I will meet with all Shoreline citizens, community leaders, and business leaders to help build a viable coalition that will lead our community to strong, open government and a clear vision for the future.

I want to discuss the real community issues of family, jobs, safety and education. Shoreline must provide for the peoples’ needs first and take care of administrative tasks only after the real needs of the community are met.

Shoreline is a great place to live, love, and raise a family. I would be honored to serve you in this city, our city, the City of Shoreline.

For four years I have served as your champion on the City Council, taking steps to enhance and preserve our quality of life.

We successfully challenged the urban center designation made by Snohomish County at Point Wells. We took a strong stand opposing coal trains running through our community. We invested in our parks – from new playgrounds at Paramount School Park and Richmond Beach Saltwater Park to infrastructure work at Echo Lake Park and Kruckeberg Gardens. We built sidewalks near Briarcrest Elementary along Aurora, and we will soon build sidewalks near Einstein.

I am running for re-election because I believe I can continue to provide leadership on several issues that face our City. We must continue to plan for two light rail stations in Shoreline, advocate for Shoreline businesses, and continue to champion proposals that strengthen our neighborhoods. We must keep our budget balanced and sustainable. We must continue to increase access and transparency in our City government.

I am proud to be endorsed by the King County Democrats, Attorney General Bob Ferguson, Sen. Maralyn Chase, Reps. Ruth Kagi and Cindy Ryu, King County Sheriff John Urquhart, the Washington Conservation Voters, the County Labor Council and many Shoreline residents.
