It is an honor to serve the people of Snohomish County. I am dedicated to strengthening our communities through economic development and improved public safety, and to working towards a shared vision for development, transportation, and preservation throughout the region. I believe strongly in the protection of our environment and natural resources.
In addition to serving as chair of the Community Safety and Justice Committee, which includes the Sheriff’s Office, Corrections, Courts, and Human Services Dept., I currently serve on the Community Transit Board, Aerospace Task Force, Puget Sound Regional Council Operations and Economic Development Committees, Housing Affordability Regional Task Force (HART,) Conservation Futures Board, and WRIA 8 Salmon Recovery Council.
Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I have lived in Edmonds since 2001, where I reside with my wife Maria, and our dog Lulu. I have been involved in our local community for many years, including supporting and volunteering for the Edmonds Center for the Arts, Chamber of Commerce Board, Edmonds College Boots to Books program, and the Edmonds Veteran’s Plaza. As a small business owner for 20 years, I saw firsthand the benefits a living wage and smart infrastructure investments can have for a community. Prior to my time on the County Council, I served six years on the Edmonds City Council and was elected as State Representative to the 21st District.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to my office at any time with questions or concerns you may have – we are here to serve you. Council District 3 includes Edmonds, Lynnwood, Woodway and unincorporated areas with Edmonds, Lynnwood, and some South Everett addresses.
