Last year I had to move all my clients to a new platform, the old platform would no longer support my type of business.  I found a new platform but it cost the clients time and expense to move.  I filled out paper work ahead of time for them and tried to make it as easy as possible.

7. What methods will you employ to communicate with your constituency on a regular basis?

I would like to have an office in the district.  I would love to setup a way for citizens to comment on issues coming up for a vote, maybe on line.  I will have a newsletter people can sign up for and town hall meetings – maybe even educational events.

8. What other information would you like us to consider?

As an Investment Adviser I will bring a new and much needed perspective to the King County Council.  Having worked in the corporate world and as a small business owner I have a proven record for problem solving and helping others.

I declare under penalty of perjury the foregoing is true and correct.
