I disavow the mailing from Respect Washington. I have also stated publicly that I knew nothing of the mailer in advance and was not consulted. I am also shocked at printing names and addresses of individuals in the community who may now be concerned about their safety.
I donated to Respect Washington for a victims fund they had advertised to help a 19 year old Burien resident who had been brutally attacked, was badly injured and in the hospital. At the time there had been no disclosure of another donor who was subsequently determined by the Southern Poverty Law Center to be a white nationalist.
The city of Burien has issued a statement to reassure the community and this can be accessed at Burienwa.gov. I want to move Burien forward, have been honored to serve and look forward to hearing from you. We have a lot to be proud of and I am excited about our future.

It has been an honor to serve you. My husband and I have raised our family in Burien, worked and volunteered in the schools, community and environment.
Public safety has been and will continue to be my top priority, adding police officers this summer. Vigorous application of existing laws to keep our library and neighborhoods safe for families is critical.
Accomplishments include joining with citizens to stop a new flight path, requiring high quality development, filling vacant town square store fronts, partnership with city and schools offering expanded programs for youth activities. I currently support and volunteer with great community partners who provide assistance, programs and training benefiting vulnerable populations and those wishing to transition out of homelessness.
I would appreciate your vote and look forward to working with you in making Burien an even better place to live, work and play.
