Sheree has more work to do to serve Medina residents
If re-elected, Sheree will continuously work collaboratively with City Residents and City Council members. She will intelligently address the needed changes for our community and shape Medina's future to be safer, healthier, and a good environment to live.
Sheree has been working hard with Medina Residents to address the 520 expansion noise challenges. Sheree will work with the City, WSDOT, University of Washington, and the WA State elected officials to seek innovative ways and accelerate the effort to find funding and meet the challenges.
Beautifying and Enriching Medina - Sheree has innovative ideas and will seek resources to accomplish them.
Sheree will seek potential Washington State grants and other resources to bury underground the risky power lines. That will eliminate power outages during the storm and transforming the street into beautiful, safe, green, and healthy spaces for walking, jogging and for wheelchairs and mothers with strollers.
She will tap into the non-profit organizations to hold fun and inspirational community activities so neighbors can gather and enjoy each other's company.
Enacting Sensible Ordinances and Codes -
Sheree will continuously advocate simplifying code and rules to be resident friendly and to permit homeowners to manage their property's safety and needs.
She will urge the City of Medina to send out public notices, prudently, to all residents instead of only publishing small announcements in the classified section of Seattle Times. The Medina residents have the right to know the objectives and the content of the proposed new codes before the public hearings that are mandated by Washington State law. Medina Residents need to have time to understand the implications that they have to live by for the next decades and make desirable input to the new zoning codes.
Enhancing Public Safety - Sheree’s global endeavor will be an asset in seeking additional resources.
Located in King County, an earthquake-prone zone, our city needs to examine how and where to improve protection for residents from impacts by falling trees and collapsed buildings during natural disasters.

UNESCO's has a critical science mandate, including in the fields of freshwater resources management, tsunami warning system, disaster risk reduction, preparedness and sustainable development. Sheree has been introducing worthwhile collaborative technologies and services to Washington State. She will share these advantages to the residents of Medina.
Sheree will strive for a more open, responsive, inclusive, and effective city government.
