Beaverton City Council Candidate: Strong like Mom

Hello Beaverton friends!

Great things are afoot! My wonderful family is supporting me in my bid for Beaverton City Council, seat number 2 (Betty Bode is retiring) and now, I need your support!

As many of you know, I have been a volunteer in Beaverton for a long time – 10 years with Beaverton School District, Cubmaster for Cub Scout Pack 673, as an Ambassador for the Chamber of Commerce, the Police Activities League and more.  Now that my kids are getting a bit older (we have one each in elementary, middle and high school!), I feel the need to reach further and do more.  With the protections and rights of our most vulnerable citizens under national assault, we all must do more.

Beaverton is a wonderful community and we have the same potential and problems that all cities face.

Amongst our homeless population, Beaverton has too many homeless and at-risk teenagers and students that are underserved. Helping those children get better connected to services and programs is a priority for me.

We are also on the verge of having completed funding for the Beaverton Arts Center.  It is my hope to help get the BAC built and assist in bringing world class entertainment, arts and education to our doorstep. These are exciting times!

Of course there is always more – more to learn and more to do.

All my best,
