When we moved to Everett in 1991, we immediately joined the Silver Lake Neighborhood Association and have been deeply involved ever since. I believe strongly in public service volunteering countless hours including as an Officer and Director for many years.

I’ve engaged with the City Council, Planning Commission, hearing examiners, and the Parks Board many times. I’ve provided input on zoning/comprehensive plan changes, road and wetland projects, commercial and residential developments.

 

I’ve worked with businesses and developers to help make projects better for neighbors, with local knowledge and community involvement.

I’m excited to take the next step in public service by bringing my energy, knowledge and demonstrated commitment to Everett and our neighborhoods to our City Council.

 

We have a lot of work to do together as a Council and a community, handling rapid growth without tearing up our neighborhoods, and creating good jobs and housing for our new neighbors and our children. We’ll do this against the headwinds of a structural budget deficit, homelessness and addiction.

 

My priority is to listen and then lead on these critical challenges. I’d be honored to earn your vote.
