No More. Four years ago, I ran for Olympia mayor, warning of the bad policies that were ruining our city. In four years, it's become worse than even I expected. Now, we need to say "No More" with a collective voice. It is time to end the encampments besieging our city, provide public safety, and truly recover Olympia. No more giving Olympia over to the failed policies that are enabling lawlessness, chaos, and addiction.

Social services are needed…AND we need a clean, safe, welcoming city. There is an affordable housing crisis…AND people should feel safe walking the trails, parks, and sidewalks of our community. There is a mental health crisis…AND kids, women, and seniors should be completely comfortable enjoying our downtown. There is an opioid epidemic…AND we deserve a compassionate community that offers help without enabling. Homelessness is complex, involving mental illness, substance abuse, job loss, medical issues, domestic violence, or a combination of factors….AND it is completely unacceptable to have our forests, waterways, and public spaces absolutely devastated by human waste and garbage.

These are not “either/or" issues. They are "AND" issues. One issue does not negate the other. We need leaders who will address all sides of these issues, compassionately AND competently. I am the only candidate with the background and experience to lead Olympia out of this quagmire. If you want Olympia to go in a new direction, vote for new leadership.
