UW Educator, Civil Engineer, and Planning Commissioner Announces Campaign for Bellevue City Council
A HEALTHY FUTURE FOR BELLEVUE
“Bellevue is a welcoming, safe, and diverse city that strives to balance the needs of our neighborhoods and communities with our role as a regional economic center.
With my background in engineering, education, and as a member of the Bellevue Planning Commission and Wellspring Family Services, I bring my expertise in technology, engineering, higher education, and community service to address the opportunities and challenges presented by our growing city.
I am running to bring that same experience, leadership, and passion to serve all communities as we chart a path for Bellevue's future. I hope to earn your support!”
