I’m honored to serve you and our welcoming, inclusive city. At gatherings like For the Love of Kirkland, neighborhood meetings, and community events, your involvement makes Kirkland better. During the last four years, I’ve listened, brought people together, and found creative solutions.
Mary Beth and I are raising three daughters who attend Lake Washington schools. To maintain what we love about Kirkland, I’ve worked to add new parks, strengthen neighborhoods, focus density in Totem Lake, and build the Cross Kirkland Corridor. I’ve championed climate and sustainability issues.
Kirkland is gaining more places to work, play, and meet our daily needs without leaving the city. If re-elected, I will pursue speeding up planned transportation projects, adding police and firefighters, and making housing more affordable.
I ask for your vote. Together we can keep Kirkland moving forward!
Endorsements: Washington Conservation Voters, Washington Bikes, state legislators, former Kirkland mayors, councilmembers, and neighborhood leaders.
