Our neighborhood needs a voice in City Hall, a representative who will fight hard for East Yakima and for our special needs. I want to be that person. I want to be that voice.

I want to work with my friend Councilman Jason White — who represents Southeast Yakima and endorses my campaign — to make sure the eastside is treated like the rest of the city.

I will work hard to solve our parking and street light problems and to provide wholesome and fun activities for our children, including an eastside swimming pool and an expanded youth center in Miller Park.
