Why I am asking
for your vote: 

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to shape our new county government and determine how it will operate in the years and likely decades ahead. 

The change to a district-only model is what has compelled me to seek this position. I have been unrelenting when it comes to representing my constituents, and without that kind of fighter in County government, our East Spokane community will be left out of important decision-making, such as policies that keep us safe and investments that make us stronger. We must ensure that our East Spokane community is in the most unabashed advocacy position possible.

When I was elected to the City Council, I said I would make public safety a top priority, I would fight for accountability, advocate for more housing options, and demand more transparency from our government. I have kept those promises and many others. I have also learned that without regional cooperation to address many of these regional issues, we will likely never get close to a resolution. 

I would truly appreciate your vote so that every day your voice isn't just heard, but you can be confident that someone is actually fighting for you.
