What I want you to know…

I care deeply about Edmonds and am excited about the great things happening in our city.  I want to keep our projects moving forward while serving with others who know our best days are ahead.  We have challenges, and we have tremendous resources among the people who live here. I’m prepared to lead our city into the future while appreciating our past.
