Statement: Growing up in Snohomish County, with my Mom working for Boeing, I know what unemployment feels like. When many people run for office, they give you promises. I ask for your vote based on my record as Bothell councilmember and my understanding of the issues. I cut taxes, paid down loans, improved city's bond rating, established 20% rainy day fund, and revitalized our downtown - creating new jobs and future revenue.
To repair our economy, we need to lower taxes, invest in education, and promote economic development. Let's build our economy and get people back to work.
