Running for a more vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable Shoreline.

Donate Now

I’m running for City Council to serve the residents of Shoreline who want a resilient local economy; a vibrant and affordable city; and a community that is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. I’ve dedicated my career to expanding opportunities and upward mobility for the residents of Shoreline. I have the experience to move our city forward. I am excited to bring my expertise and grit to the City Council. I look forward to earning your vote.

The Issues

Affordable Housing for all Ages and Incomes

Shoreline needs more affordable and diverse housing options. Our community needs housing for seniors looking to age in place and for families looking for a place to call home. David will increase access to both rental and permanent housing for all ages and incomes. David supports strategic development to bring small businesses and living wage jobs to Shoreline by modernizing building codes and creating incentives that support sustainable growth.

Safe, Accessible Neighborhoods

As a father of three, David knows the importance of safe, walkable streets. Shoreline needs properly maintained sidewalks; improved lighting on streets and walking paths; more accessible community gathering spaces; and safe trails connecting people to parks, nature, and businesses. As a member of the City Council, David will collaborate with residents to prioritize specific locations that need immediate improvement and will develop a long-term plan to create a welcoming, inclusive city center.

A New Approach to Homelessness

As the former Board President of Vision House—a non-profit housing agency in Shoreline that helps single parents and their children transition out of homelessness into permanent housing—David has hands-on experience and expertise addressing homelessness. In addition to supporting local direct-service organizations and increasing affordable housing options, David will work across boundaries to implement a regional strategy that tackles barriers to permanent housing. David supports on-demand addiction and mental health services that will help our neighbors get off the streets and into stable housing.

Diverse, Resilient and Local Economy

David will support increased diversity and resiliency of small businesses in Shoreline by reducing the barriers to starting and operating a business in the city. Shoreline needs to encourage business development and partnerships by increasing pedestrian traffic, available parking and neighborhood gathering spaces, within our commercial centers.
