I am proud to serve as your Mayor and I'm asking for your vote to continue!

My voting record and actions speak volumes. As a Council Person I worked to uncover massive theft from our city and bring those resources back into our budget. I voted to remodel and open the City Pool, to remodel and open the Community Center, to bring dignity to our departed loved ones by beautifying our cemetery. I also voted to support the hiring of additional law enforcement officers. Most importantly, I am a mother, Grandmother, a Christian and am here to serve you.

As a 4th generation Wapato resident, I have served since 2016 as a council member and fought hard for an open government that listens to the Citizens. I am asking for your support to be the next Mayor so that we can make Wapato a better place to live and to raise our children. I will restore our police and fire departments; I will work hard to restore the financial condition of our community; and I will support our business community to encourage growth. We need to work together to fix the mess caused by our current City Administration.
