King County Councilman Reagan Dunn has spent his legal career fighting to make our communities safer through his leadership on criminal justice policy, his work as a federal prosecutor, and his dedication to providing legal representation to those in our community most in need.
Reagan was first appointed to the King County Council in February, 2005 to fill the vacancy created by Rob McKenna’s election as Washington State Attorney General. Reagan was then elected in November, 2005 and re-elected in 2009 with 78 percent of the vote. He now represents more than 220,000 citizens in Southeast King County.
I am running for Covington City Council to combine the great history that we have as a city and to carefully plan and prepare for the growth that our town is experiencing. As a wife, mother and business owner I am excited to expand my relationships with the community and to serve as an advocate for those who need it most.
Having lived in Covington for almost 14 years, I am eager to keep our city a place we can all call home and protect it against decisions that are not conducive to our families, homes and businesses. With the support of our elected council, we deserve the opportunity to develop to our full potential!
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to do what is right for our town and its advancing future!
