I fell in love with Bremerton when the Navy brought me here in 1996 and knew that this is where I wanted to stay. This community has given me great opportunities for volunteer civic engagement and developing leadership through my work in local nonprofits, healthcare, education and community groups. Running for City Council feels like the obvious next step in my commitment to Bremerton, and especially, my neighborhood. I hope that you will consider me for your next City Council representative for District 5.

It's General Election Season

With the Primary date behind us we are getting ready to launch into General Election Season. I recently participated in the Bremerton Chamber's Eggs and Issues debate. It was great to hear what people were concerned about and get a chance to answer questions.

We still have some fundraising to do. I am investing my time to further serve our community and the City of Bremerton. I would hope you would consider investing in me. Whether you live in District 5 or not - we want to ensure we have the right values leading our City Council. Please consider making a contribution to ensure the future we want for bremerton.

We have ordered yard signs which is another way to show your support. We plan to have them at General Election Launch event & fundraiser on 9/15.

Happy 4th of July

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Independence Day. Here's a little history from

The Declaration of Independence
We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.
But July 4, 1776 wasn't the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776).
It wasn’t the day we started the American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775).
And it wasn't the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to Great Britain (that didn't happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed (that was August 2, 1776).
So what did happen on July 4, 1776?
The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. They'd been working on it for a couple of days after the draft was submitted on July 2nd and finally agreed on all of the edits and changes.
July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the Declaration of Independence, and the fancy handwritten copy that was signed in August (the copy now displayed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) It’s also the date that was printed on the Dunlap Broadsides, the original printed copies of the Declaration that were circulated throughout the new nation. So when people thought of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 was the date they remembered.
