I was born and raised in Ballard and my parents, both social workers, raised me with a sense of community. Our neighbors were school teachers, welders, plumbers, electricians, and fishermen. As our city changes, we need to work together to build a Seattle which integrates inclusiveness and progressive values into the sense of community that makes our district special.
I have nearly a decade of legislative experience and I know how to make change happen. I’ve worked as a legislative aide and policy advisor at the City of Seattle, the Washington State Legislature, the Oregon State Legislature, and the Alliance for Gun Responsibility. I have coordinated with the state, county, city, and local groups to fund transportation projects, develop green building codes, and improve our parks. I know how to move power back to everyday people and how to make elected officials sit up and listen to their constituents. It’s that knowledge and community commitment that I intend to bring to City Hall as your Councilmember.
I will fight to make sure Seattle grows into a healthy city that works for everyone. I will work with you to build a Seattle we can be proud of by connecting our bus and bike lanes, supporting our small businesses, expanding affordable childcare programs, and ensuring that all Seattlites have a safe, affordable place to call home.
I want to hear from you, to build a platform that works for all of us. Please reach out and let me know what a healthy Seattle will look like for you. I look forward to serving you in City Hall!
