Welcome. I chair the Government Performance and Finance Committee, which is responsible for policy and legislative oversight of the City departments that make the nuts and bolts of government run smoothly and transparently.
The Committee oversees financial management and policies for the City, the City budget process, the City Employees' Retirement System and administrative and personnel matters. Placing a strong focus on accountability, the Committee works closely with the City Auditor and the City's independent Ethics and Elections Commission staff. The Committee is also responsible for oversight of the Families and Education Levy and collaborates with the Seattle Public School District Board of Directors, its administrators and others in the community on joint projects to strengthen Seattle's public schools.
My staff and I are here to serve you, answer your questions or help you navigate the City's bureaucracy. You can schedule a meeting with me on most Friday mornings between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Please let us know how we can help you.
