Thank you for visiting my campaign website! 


I’ve been working hard as your Kitsap County Commissioner since June of 2023, when I was appointed to fill the seat vacated by former Commissioner Rob Gelder. For me, this appointment has been an opportunity to return to the place where my public service career started, when I was an intern and young Planner for Kitsap County’s Department of Community Development. 


Although the County Commissioner position was like drinking out of the proverbial fire hose the first few months, I like it! So much so that I’ve decided to run to retain the position. 


It was my honor to serve the people of our county in the Washington State legislature for over 16 years. During that time my focus remained on improving and maintaining the quality of life for all the people in our local community. 


From securing transportation dollars for projects along Highway 305, Highway 104 in Kingston, Gorst, the Hood Canal and Warren Avenue bridges, to supporting our military families, increasing state funding for our public schools, modernizing our behavioral health care system, protecting animal welfare, and preserving and restoring Puget Sound and our local forests - as a legislative leader I worked in partnership with a diversity of members of our community to achieve every success, and I look forward to managing these successes at the local level.


As your newest Kitsap County Commissioner, I continue to provide that inclusive and transparent level of public service. I will always place community priorities over party labels and work to bring neighbors of differing views but common interests together. 


Over the coming year, even prior to the election, this work will be especially important as the residents of the county debate how we manage future population growth, how we protect sensitive environmental areas, how we prioritize parks, trails, and open spaces, and how we provide the affordable housing options and safe and healthy communities that people need.


Thank you for your interest and support as we build our 2024 campaign.


I am easily available to you - please feel free to email me and I will do my best to respond personally and promptly. If you have concerns about county matters, you can contact me through my Port Orchard office.

One of my favorite parts of my job is going out into the community. Putting faces to issues and getting to know the wonderful people who live in our beautiful county is why I get up in the morning. It's not always easy, and sometimes it's extememly hard, but working through issues together ensures outcomes that benefit all of us.
