Why PPMF: The Pike Place Market is not just a market that is open on the weekends or a few mornings a week, it’s alive 24/7 in some capacity. Some of my favorite times at the market is when I walk though during the busy tourist season, and its wall to wall — arm to arm with visitors. It gives our city life with an exciting atmosphere that makes us feel happy. I want to be a part of this amazing gem that I’m so lucky to have in my backyard. The market feeds those who are hungry, quenches the thirst for those who are thirsty and gives shelter to those who need a home. It would be my pleasure and honor to be a part of this amazing board and to be able to bring life to our citizens and guests in our beautiful city. My commitment to the board would to always put the needs of the Market Foundation first, to work well with other members and to protect the market’s integrity to provide a positive place for all that visit.
