TEA Officer and Zone Representative Results
I am excited about the opportunity to be your TEA President. Union membership is high, but engagement is low, and many members are feeling like there’s nothing we can do to make positive changes. An effective union represents every member’s voice and every job category. Every person with a workplace issue deserves to be heard. A labor union’s purpose is to advocate for improved working conditions and fair compensation for work. The Mission of TEA is missing both. Clearly, Tacoma Education Association needs new leadership. I am running for president because I am a problem solver. I want to listen to you and work with you to make working conditions better for everyone. I humbly ask for your vote and would be honored to serve the people in our union.

Whether in the school halls, the halls of Olympia, or at the bargaining table, I dedicated the last decade of my life making the lives of our fellow union members better.
The last two years have tested us. We have faced challenges that we could never have imagined.
However, together we found ways to connect to each other, and our students, as we learned new protocols, tech, and systems. Together, we accomplished much, and together we have much more to do. I ask you allow me to continue as your president; building upon what we have accomplished.
