Position 5
Term Expires: 12/31/2025

As a Snoqualmie resident for over 20 years, I've seen many changes within our city and the Snoqualmie Valley. I will work to cultivate and preserve Snoqualmie’s uniqueness and natural beauty while planning for the economic health of our community and generating support for local businesses.  As a senior citizen on a fixed income, I bring a practical perspective that recognizes the importance of fiscal accountability, affordable housing, and community planning.

For the past 45 years, I've served in the fields of emergency medicine, veterinary medicine and firefighting. I've been a member of the Snoqualmie Fire Department for over 20 years, responding on the aid unit, organizing the annual Pancake Breakfast, and leading medical trainings. I was also a volunteer and Co-Chair for the Snoqualmie Arts Commission.  My dedication to our community runs deep and I bring a unique understanding from decades of service.

Councilmember Cotton was elected in November 2023.  

Service in 2024:

  • Public Safety Council Committee, Member
  • Parks & Public Works Council Committee, Member
