A Burien Daily interview was added to the Candidate News page on October 2, 2013.
June 2013: Somehow, I was left off the list of candidates on the front page of the June 2013 Burien City Newsletter that was mailed to all City residents. I've been getting a lot of calls, and I would like to let everyone know that Yes, I am still a candidate and still running for Position #3 for Burien City Council.
For the full text of my letter to the Editor of the B-Town Blog about this problem, please see our Candidate News page.

It's time to reform Burien city government, make it accountable, transparent and responsive. Citizens need to be heard. This isn't happening with the current council majority. Public safety needs to be a top priority along with jump starting our local economy. Burien's businesses need to be revitalized and new ones need to be recruited. Environmental protection and Town Square need to be an important part of Burien's planning. With years of experience in financial management and environmental issues, I have the knowledge and skills to guide Burien during these critical economic times.
My Husband and I are long time Burien residents - we chose to raise our family here because of the safe small town atmosphere. Our children attended Highline schools. We support local businesses and participate in our community. I intend to preserve, sustain and enhance Burien's assets. I would appreciate your vote and look forward to working with you in making Burien an even better place to live, work and play.
