Welcome! It’s an honor and a privilege to serve as your Seattle City Councilmember at-large. I’m proud to be the first Latina/o ever to hold this position. As one of your two city-wide representatives, I intend to uphold the progressive values I have spent my career fighting for and to be a voice for Seattle residents from all walks of life.
As a former civil rights attorney and community advocate, I have fought against special interests for the fair treatment of women, the elderly, low-wage workers and people of color. Through my service on community boards and non-profits around our region and nation, I have spent my life preparing to tackle the challenges facing our City today.
We need leaders willing to face the complex issues confronting our city. From affordability to transit to safety, we need leaders willing to doggedly ensure equitable solutions to these challenges. In my career spanning over a decade as a trial lawyer, police-reform advocate and former mayoral adviser, I have honed my core values of hard work and justice. On the Council, I won’t back away from tough issues or seeking community-based solutions that build a stronger Seattle for shared prosperity.
I hope you’ll stay in touch. Please contact me online, by phone, via email, through social media or in person.
