Lake City Community Center

$16 Million for a New Lake City Community Center

Lake City deserves a gathering place that fits its vibrant character and diversity. I secured $16 million dollars of funding to replace the current building with a landmark facility that will serve Lake City for generations to come.

Public Safety

Public safety is a priority for District 5. We need more police officers in the North Precinct, so I voted to add 40 new officers in the budget and for the appointment of new police chief Carmen Best (pictured here). A federal judge recently applauded the city for its work to ensure professionalism, accountability, and community oversight. Our city is taking police reform seriously.

Northgate's Future

Northgate: Seattle’s Future - Now

A keystone light rail station. An NHL team headquarters and hockey facility with three community ice rinks. A pedestrian bridge connecting both sides of I-5. Hundreds of units of affordable housing. I have been hard at work making sure these improvements deliver maximum benefits for new and longtime residents of the Northgate neighborhood.

12 new sidewalk projects are coming to north Seattle

12 New Sidewalk Projects

North Seattle needs safe, accessible sidewalks on every important arterial and neighborhood street. As a parent and neighbor, I understand the importance of walkable routes for our kids and seniors. I advocated for funding to bring 12 sidewalk projects to our district. Check out this map of pedestrian improvements coming soon to District 5:
