Thank YOU. With your help, I’ve made it to the November ballot and it’s going to be fight.
But, despite this crazy campaign season; I continue my PERSONAL fight for Justice not Jails and Homes for the Homeless. Those who know me, understand that these are more than ‘politically convenient’ platform issues; they’re the deep personal values I will bring to our seat on the County Council. With a Council divided 4-3 to support a new jail, can we really afford to rely on a Council-appointed member to uphold our values?
You know I will and I need your help.
As any grassroots campaign, or until we pass Campaign Reform, people and money are needed, and we’re no different. My opponent has the entitlements of his incumbency: ‘carry over’ endorsements (and their cash) from his last run/current term, two years ago and access to donor lists and volunteer resources. I however, have earned the most important endorsement. Yours. So, I’m sending this SOS to you. Can you throw in a donation today for $40.00?

I also need you. Many of you know the 'deal': doorbelling, phone banking, data entry, research, event host. I’ll be posting more on this in the near future. PM me if you would like to volunteer. All are welcome.
Again, thank you. I am ready to fight all the way...for you, with you.

Proud to be Endorsed by Our Revolution

Over the course of my thirty-seven years of “in-the- trenches” social work experience working with children and families on the east and west coast and overseas with the US Army, I have acquired an intimate understanding of the challenges that everyday people encounter.
To be a social worker is to have a front row seat to the spectacle of how politics and policy play out in real life. I have found that it is virtually impossible to separate politics and social work since the former so profoundly affects everyone.
As a member of the Whatcom County community, I have also used my social work skills to assist in community actions that succeeded in preventing the Gateway Pacific (Coal) Terminal from getting the necessary permits to build the largest coal terminal on the west coast, threatening the health and safety of the Lummi Nation, the communities close to the terminal and the planet as a whole. I have found that our community has an enormous amount of smart talented people and with all the hard work put into these fights, we can prevail. I am eager to put my energy and skills to making sure that Cherry Point will not have any new or increased fossil fuel industry.
As county council member for district 2, Amy pledges to:
  • Advocate for programs that promote clean water, clean air and a healthy environment for future generations.
  • Approve no project that is shown to be harmful to our citizens and environment.
  • Block mega jails or any project that is not cost-effective and in the best interest of the people it is meant to serve.
  • Always support projects that will enhance the lives of the less fortunate and those without a voice, over projects that only profit large corporations.  
  • Encourage and support buying local and increasing business opportunities in our county that promote sustainable well paying jobs.
  • Actively solicit and listen to your concerns and will consider all consequences when formulating my opinions and decisions.
  • Always respect and honor Native American treaties

Welcome to my campaign


            My pledge, if you allow me to represent you.
* I will advocate for programs that promote clean water, clean air and a healthy environment for future generations. Read MORE

* Regarding fossil fuels in Whatcom: I will approve no project that is shown to be harmful to our citizens and environment. I believe that Cherry Point is Lummi Nation territory and whatever industry that wants to build at Cherry Point should go through the Lummi Nation before the county gets involved. MORE 

* I would not support a mega jail or any project that is not cost-effective and in the best interest of the people it is meant to serve. Housing the homeless and providing people with mental health services is more effective and costs less than putting them in jail. MORE

* I will always support projects that will enhance the lives of the less fortunate and those without a voice, over projects that only profit large corporations.  MORE

* I will encourage and support buying local and increasing business opportunities in our county that promote sustainable well paying jobs such as jobs in the solar, wind and hemp industries. MORE 

* I will actively solicit and listen to your concerns and will consider all consequences when formulating my opinions and decisions.

* I will always respect and honor Native American treaties..MORE 

Why am I running to represent you on Whatcom County Council?


I had been thinking about it for a few years but once Bernie Sanders dropped out and left the revolution to us, I knew I had to take action. 

I decided that after 37 years of being  a Social Worker and 13 recent years of working on different political campaigns and issues in Whatcom County, that is was time to step up.
I believe that we already have a pretty good council but it is missing some pieces that I could fill. I am a woman.  Although nobody should vote for me just because I am female, I do think the council could use more female representation.

I am a social worker. I do not think the council has any representation from that viewpoint to see how the policies and programs designed to help people either help or hinder them on a basic practical level.

I am a progressive and I make no apologies about being that. I think we must take care of the planet now or it will be too late.  I think we must take care of our indigent, our children and our elderly because that is the right thing to do.

I have lived in the county and now the city and I can see how the 2 often see problems from different perspectives. I believe that I have the right skill set to work with all kinds of people, the intelligence to be a quick learner as there is an enormous amount of material to learn, and the wisdom to know that we can't always get what we want.

But if we try sometime, we just might find, we can get what we need. I know, I stole that line from The Rolling Stones. 
Join me in developing a platform that will be good for people and the environment.
