From ripping out drywall and bleaching crawl spaces after the flood to volunteering at civic events to co-organizing a wildly successful library fundraiser, Dave was active in helping the community prior to being elected to office. He’s continued to work to solve issues large and small during his term in office.
Looking Out for You Every Day
A Positive Direction for Bellevue
Dave has been a champion for the type of development that our community wants and a firewall against that which would harm the community’s character. Implementing commercial property standards, bringing new amenities, and fighting for better infrastructure are just some of the ways Dave has fought to make our community even stronger.
Intensifying Public Safety
Metro Police’s response to the flood demonstrated their incredible capacity to protect our citizens. But more can be done to ensure that Metro Police have the capacity to respond in a timely and appropriate fashion when issues of safety pop up.
Opposing Landfills in Bellevue
Twice since 2006, outside groups came close to putting landfills adjacent to neighborhoods full of families. It is critical that our councilmembers stand up to attempts to place unpleasant and property value-destroying trash heaps in our backyards.
Fighting for Our Schools
A public school parent himself, Dave worked tirelessly to secure approval of a new high school in Bellevue that will further strengthen our lower schools. The work to fund the full project continues, as do efforts to ensure adequate resources and facilities for our elementary and middle school students.
Acting Responsibly with Tax Dollars
Dave has worked to increase government efficiency, remove unnecessary and costly regulations, and ensure that Metro demonstrates responsibility with our tax dollars.
