It's Official, We Have a Race

In case you missed the news, last week I filed to run for re-election to the County Council. It’s been an honor to serve you and I work hard every day to earn he trust shown to me by voters.

I want to take this opportunity to thank my opponent, David Olson, for stepping up to run. I exchanged messages with him last week wishing him well on the campaign. Having run against incumbents twice in the past I know it’s not an easy task.

I believe that campaigns move policy. Without an opponent, we wouldn’t get the chance to put our message to the test with voters. If we win, we get to move those ideas forward. That’s how we were able make behavioral health a top priority for the Council and pass bills protecting Puget Sound.
