Hi, I'm Zandria Michaud and I'm running for Kent City Council because I believe in Kent and want all Kent residents to have the best quality of life possible.

I will work to improve safety and am committed to investing and protecting our parks, open spaces, and environment. During my time as both a Kent Parks and Recreation Commissioner and Green Kent Steward, I have actively advocated for sustainable parks funding, preserving open spaces, and creating equitable access to parks.

I support funding additional police officers for community policing. I want Kent's officers visible and present in public spaces and engaged with our community.

I also want to ensure our citizens have access to much needed social, health, and housing resources. We have a responsibility to help our seniors, veterans, and low-income residents.

We must meet all these goals while still maintaining financial stability for the city and I hope to guide the city toward these efforts.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and hearing your thoughts and concerns about Kent.
