Ready to Lead
I was inspired to run for Everett’s city council for a few reasons. I am a strong leader and I have something to say. Everett needs governance on some very complicated issues and problems, and I am ready to address those issues.
I want to focus on the budget deficit, covid recovery, and local/regional transit needs in Everett. I also want to increase representation on the council and serve as the first openly queer Everett City Councilmember.
The redistricting efforts underway in Everett is a prime time to expand representation of the council. We need more people of color, individuals with differing abilities, people from different classes, and queer people represented.
I care immensely about what happens in Everett, and in District 5.
I am running for office because I have the skills and abilities to do a good job on behalf of the people of Everett.
