I am ready to get to work to create a more vibrant, educated, safe, fed, housed Snohomish County! I have spent half my life in this region, the other half in Southeast Alaska, I am a mother, I have two daughters. I have worked in early childhood, higher education, elderly care, Federal and State Government, Social Service programs, public health, food and beverage industry, construction and commercial fishing industry. I know first hand small and large business practices, and how programs and policy impact all levels of society. I would love to see Snohomish county adjust to the growing population and meet and exceed it’s challenges with well functioning public utilities including rural broadband internet, and help a just transition to cleaner and more economical power sources. End toxic glyphosate spraying of timber and protect our watershed and recreational opportunities. Ensure our public health and safety programs systems are functioning as we transition to a vibrant economy and healthy community. Supporting small family agriculture is very important to shorten our supply chains and support working families.
Amber grew up in Snohomish county, born in Edmonds and raised between Southeast Alaska and areas of Snohomish County and North King County. Growing up in rural Snohomish county she’s seen many changes over the years of density, land use and recreation diminish.
Why am I running?
- To give a working mother’s voice to the Snohomish County Council
- To help adapt and implement programs and policy that will impact our coming changes in this crisis, we need to uplift our small businesses and community programs.
- Ensure that sound decisions are made in the interests of all people and community infrastructure and services are supported.
