Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my campaign website. We have a real opportunity for positive change in Edmonds.

My wife and I have lived in Edmonds for almost two decades because we love its natural beauty and small-town feel. We have thriving businesses, arts and cultural events that draw visitors from around the region.  People look out for each other and have a strong sense of civic pride.  My goal is to protect this natural beauty, while strengthening our economic core and ensuring that no one is left out and everyone has a voice.

Please browse the site to learn more about this campaign and my vision for Edmonds. Together we can retain our community feel while simultaneously accommodating responsible growth. I don’t believe in an ‘all or nothing’ approach to government.  Let’s hear from everyone, take the best ideas out there, and keep Edmonds a great place to live, work, and play.

Feel free to use the contact form to ask any questions you might have. I’ll also be out and about in our neighborhoods during the campaign, so don’t be surprised if I knock on your door to ask for your input personally.

This is our city. Let’s work together to make it even better.


Thank you to the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility for your endorsement. I support your work to end gun violence in our communities & to promote a culture of gun ownership that balances rights with responsibilities, using evidence-based solutions. ...

Today I met Pat Schere, who found a shady spot for her wheelchair under a small tree. She waved me over and gave me a big welcome. During the Depression, Pat had been abandoned in the streets of Tacoma at 3 years old. The only word she knew was "Mama". When no family could be found, the Waldo's took her in and raised her as their own. Her new older brother said "She don't know nothing but I sure love her." He took it upon himself to show her how to be a kid. Her new family was good to her even though she quickly learned to say "No!" and stomp her feet. Her dad was a railman, who built their Tacoma house and then built himself a ship. She asked if I had seen the great big boat anchored in front of Edmonds. She told me how her father had built his, how all the neighbors helped get it to the waterfront and how it didn't take on any water. "It's either gonna float or sink," he'd said, but it didn't leak one drop. She was so proud of her father. He even let little Pat name and christen the ship. She named it after a song that was popular at the time (the Hutsut?) and cracked the bottle against the hull. During the war, she got to go on citizen patrols with her father. They spotted a two-man sub and radioed it in to the Coast Guard. Pat worries about the people in Houston who lost everything to that flooding. Some of them had nothing to begin with, she said. She liked to come out and sit in the shade and think about how she could help people like that. "I don't know what I can do," she said, "but I know the Big Man Up There doesn't want us to give up trying. Don't ever give up." ...
