After years of reporting and opining about Cascadia, I've decided to take a big step: I'm running for Seattle City Council.
I'm a Seattle native and I believe the city is being left behind because of poor leadership. We’re hindered by poor decision-making and political infighting, while posturing at the city council costs taxpayers and threatens our economic future. Becoming a parent made me realize than I could either hope for better or take on the challenge myself.
My goal is to create modern urban neighborhoods where people want to live and work, where growth and density are incentivized with infrastructure, fast internet, vibrant businesses and transit connections so residents don't need a car for their daily routines.
Anyone who reads this blog knows that I don't have all the answers. Yet I am interested in good ideas and finding ways to work together to bring them to life. Please follow my campaign website and share your thoughts.
