Vision for Tukwila
Tukwila is facing many challenges, one of which is how our elected officials on Tukwila City Council choose to spend our public money. Too many decisions regarding development and infrastructure investments have been pushed through council without sufficient public engagement or comment.
As your city councilmember, I will ensure there is meaningful public engagement and that all of Tukwila's diverse voices are represented in decision-making.
Our city is one of the few remaining places in King County where a family can afford a home. One of the reasons I moved to Tukwila with my family was because we are a proud city in which working people can live securely. But that version of Tukwila I moved to is being threatened by rising rents and soaring housing prices pushing south into town at a fast pace. All of our neighbors deserve to live secure, dignified lives in Tukwila without facing the threat of economic eviction.
I will fight for affordable housing of all kinds in every neighborhood. I will protect homeowners and renters so they can stay in their homes.
Tukwila has always faces challenges with public safety. We must continue to build relationships with our public servants who keep us safe.
I will invest in our first responders and increase community supports to improve public safety long before an incident occurs.
