Thank you for taking time to check out my website. The fact that you are here says a lot about the importance you place in choosing someone to represent you on Federal Way’s city council. My website was written to address the issues I believe are important to our cities future and to be a forum for dialog with you.

Because of my focus on service I have actively looked for ways to make a difference in our city and community. As a supporter  of the Chamber of Commerce I have had the opportunity to hear first hand the concerns and challenges our local businesses face as well as understand what is working in our city. I am also a member of the Kiwanis which is a service group that has been a part of Federal Way for over 50 years and is focused enriching the lives of children. I also made the choice to serve in city government as a member of three city commissions; the Civil Service Commission, the Independent Salary Review Commission, and the Parks and Recreation Commission. As a result of my engagement in both city government and in the community I have come to appreciate the diversity of our our community the potential for greatness that exists.

Making the leap from being engaged in public causes to running for office is big leap, one most never consider. This is certainly understandable, as running for public office is a demanding endeavor. However, as long as these campaigns seem, they serve a valuable purpose because they show us who the candidates are. In the process of getting to know me better as a candidate I look forward to getting to know you as well and earn both your trust and vote.

We live in a world that is constantly changing. Some embrace the change while other resist it. Regardless, change is always going to be a part of our lives, so understanding who we are and what we value is essential. Being an active part of the change is something all of us can do regardless of our race, social status, or age. My hope is that you will join me in making a difference in Federal Way by being part of the solution.
