A new chapter begins

First, I would like to give a special “thank you!” to each and every one of you who have supported my campaign during these challenging and out-of-the-ordinary days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

While I did not prevail in this election, the most important thing that happened on Tuesday is that the citizens of Ferndale have had the opportunity to vote.  In doing that, our community members who voted have also expressed a larger commitment: to our freedom to interact with and participate in our government, to our ongoing freedom to choose, to our freedom to express our viewpoints, and to invest ourselves in the affairs of the community of which we are a part.

These freedoms also oblige us to inform ourselves, as we participate in the governing of our city, our county, our state, and our country. Factors and conditions may evolve, but It is our active and informed participation that strengthens our democratic form of government. Our way of life rests on the will and efforts of all in the community. In this spirit, I urge all of you to stay involved, in oversight and in service, in whatever way opens to you, and I pledge to do the same.

We have a shared history, built upon generations of people with the courage and commitment to seek and defend a better way of life. We honor the sacrifices of those who have gone before by realizing that we too must strive to make this a better world for all of us.

Today’s disappointments will best be overcome by our ongoing commitment to serving our city and and community members, and to making Ferndale the best city we can envision.

Count Down to November 2nd!


We have only a few days left to get ballots turned in!  Remind your friends and neighbors.  Local elections are important because they directly affect you and your community so don't miss this opportunity to make your voice heard.  

Use one of the official ballot drop boxes throughout the county to drop your completed ballot before 8:00 pm on Tuesday, November 2nd.  Or, you may drop it in the mail (no stamp required)-- but make sure it is picked up and postmarked by the close of business on Tuesday!

Ballots in the Mail!


Ballots should be arriving any minute at your mailbox. Take a few moments to fill them out and drop them off using the convenient ballot dropbox next to City Hall. If you have not received your ballot by mid-next week, check with the Whatcom County Auditor to get a replacement ballot

League of Women Voters Forum

On Oct. 7th, I sat down with my opponent and we discussed our contrasting views of Ferndale's future. Big thank you to the League of Women Voters of Bellingham and Whatcom County who hosted the forum.

Yard Signs!

 It's time to get those yard signs up!  If you still have one from a couple of years ago, it's time to dig it out, dust it off, and put it on display.  If you need one, let us know using this form and we will get one to you!  Thank you for your support!

Ready to Run!

I am delighted to announce that I am running to stay on the Ferndale City Council to continue the work I started in January when the Council appointed me to fill the Position 7 vacancy. Stepping into the role with my sleeves rolled up and ready to begin work, I immediately started identifying ways to make our local government work more efficiently and effectively for our community. And I'm just getting started!

I will continue to work on smart planning for our growing population and to tackle the backlog of problems that have been kicked down the road for too long.  I will continue to make evidence-based decisions with a focus on the immediate and long-term well-being of the City and our residents.  I will continue to plan for a future we can be proud of.
