Beaverton City Council Position 1

Four forms of city government determine the administrative role of any city council. Most Oregon cities with populations over 2,500 have the council/manager or council/administrator form, in which the council hires a chief executive officer to be responsible for the daily supervision of city affairs. Portland has a commission form of government, where the elected commissioners function collectively as the city council and serve as administrators of city departments. Smaller Oregon cities typically have the mayor/council form, in which the legislative and policy-making body is a popularly elected council.Qualifications: An elective city officer shall be a qualified elector under the state constitution and shall have resided in the city during the 12 months immediately before being elected or appointed to the office. In this subsection "city" means area inside the city limits at the time of the election or appointment. In addition, a councilor shall have resided in the ward the councilor represents during the 12 months immediately before being elected or appointed to the office.Please see City Charter.

Town Where You Live Beaverton
Your Experience/Qualificatons I hold a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Portland, and a law degree from Willamette University College of Law. I am the current chair of the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District board, the largest special district in Oregon. I have led our district with integrity during the pandemic and enacted affordable housing policy. I built relationships with regional elected leaders and voted to increase the THPRD stipend to create a more representative board.

From the research I have done, I cannot find any information about Beaverton expanding in this way. I know that the city of Beaverton currently lacks a comprehensive annexation plan, and I think it would benefit the city to have a transparent program for annexation so that residents know exactly what the process is.

I think currently there are a lot of pockets in Beaverton that are not actually part of city limits. These unincorporated areas lack the benefits of being part of a municipality, and the county is not set up to act as a city.
Affordable housing is one of my top priorities and it is key that we build more affordable rental units and establish a program for affordable homeownership. Beaverton has one severe weather shelter that is not open year-round. Beaverton does not have family shelters. We need to ensure that all residents of Beaverton can have appropriate shelter. We have seen creative options for shelters to help people temporarily as they seek and secure permanent housing. I will partner with local agencies like Community Partners for Affordable Housing, Project Homeless Connect, Community Action of Washington County, Home Plate Youth Services, and others, and overlapping jurisdictions like Metro and Washington County, to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our community when the eviction moratorium ends.
217 has been a parking lot since before I was driving. I lived off the Allen Blvd exit and remember how scary it was learning to merge onto 217 before Denney Road. We know that there are some much-needed improvements to be made to this important connector highway to reduce congestion (and reduce emissions as a result) and create a much safer route through Beaverton.

I worry if these changes are not made, it will force even more traffic onto the surface roads in Beaverton. Beaverton’s funding capacity does not match ODOT’s capacity, and I worry that if we do not begin to address the problems with highway 217 soon, we will only have further problems with safety and congestion. I want to make the best choice for residents and the environment.

Additionally, I think we need to continue to invest in bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure to get people streamlined access to public transportation that could reduce traffic and emissions further.

The Council is challenged to simultaneously adopt efficient land use policies within the City boundaries, meet Metro’s urban growth boundary guidance, and comply with the State’s mandate to increase housing density. HB2001 mandates that cities like Beaverton increase neighborhood housing density. The City must quickly determine how to comply with HB2001, consider urban boundary changes, and ensure public engagement.

Land inside the urban growth boundary supports City services such as roads, water and sewer systems, and police protection. The boundary is one way to protect farms and forests from urban sprawl. The Metro Council must first work with the City to determine if steps such as rezoning and redevelopment can enhance the efficiency of land use inside the existing boundary. Under the current boundary growth process, the residents of these areas ultimately decide whether they are incorporated or not. 

I look forward to having the hard conversations as a Beaverton City Councilor.
As a past volunteer at Beaverton's Severe Weather Shelter, I want to place the human toll of homelessness front and center of our policymaking conversations about addressing homelessness. Homelessness is a traumatic and devastating experience for anyone’s self-respect and sense of dignity. Homelessness is incredibly complicated and the roots of homelessness are poorly understood. We must remember that the experience of homelessness is unique to each and every person.

We have Beaverton’s 2019 Housing Five-Year Action Plan—which I fully support. We are appropriately focused on serving people experiencing homelessness—providing shelters and transitional housing, making homes affordable through homebuyers assistance programs, and increasing housing supply by removing development code obstacles, and strategic land acquisition and development incentives. I will remember that this “issue” is about people.

The City has a sacred duty to make homelessness a brief and rare experience.
As a licensed professional engineer with bachelor's and master's degrees in civil engineering and a former public works director, I know that infrastructure is a direct reflection of our principles and values. Infrastructure reveals our beliefs about how we want to live.

Our obsolete and overwhelmed traffic infrastructure, for which the American Society of Civil Engineers gives a 'D' grade, has detrimental effects on our health, environment, economy, and the livability of our city. The Highway 217 Auxiliary Lanes Project will help, but we must advocate for similar transportation infrastructure projects that make sense and move us toward a sustainable and resilient future.

I am proud of my recent service on Metro’s 'Get Moving' 2020 local transportation infrastructure investment team. Let’s develop a true multi-modal transportation system which serves efficient and sustainable land use patterns and community designs that enhance mass transit, bicycle safety, and pedestrian travel.
