WHY I'M RUNNING
"I am running for City Council because I believe that local government can be effective in making change. I feel that my decades of work advocating for and helping guide change are what Bellevue needs at this moment. We are no longer a sleepy suburb; we are an incredibly diverse and resource-rich metropolis. The solutions we implement must be at the scale of the problems we face.
I see a very different Bellevue from the one I moved to in the early 1980’s, but one that still draws newcomers looking for the same things that my family wanted decades ago. Bellevue’s best years are ahead of it, if we all make it happen together."
