Meet Rituja!

IMG_0838-1.JPGOver 15 years ago, my husband and I moved to Sammamish to raise our family. We fell in love with the great schools, safe neighborhoods and beautiful green spaces.

I’m running for City Council to protect just that -- our beautiful and safe neighborhoods, parks and forests, quality schools and diverse community-- all of which make Sammamish special.

As a public school parent, tech industry professional and community volunteer, I would bring a nonpartisan, fiscally responsible and solutions-oriented approach to my role as City Council Member. I am deeply committed to giving back to the community that has given my family so much.

While our city is growing, we are also facing some challenges – many of us spend countless hours in traffic, worry about sustainable growth and are concerned about losing our natural habitats. I believe it’s our responsibility to work together to find solutions to these issues. We need to work with our regional partners to find cost effective transit and transportation options including public-private partnerships. We should support sensible growth, while balancing the need to protect the environment and character of our community, protect our parks and green spaces, and support reliable police, fire and support services for everyone.

I have the experience to bring people together and ensure strong community engagement so all voices are heard, find solutions to our toughest problems, and will promote common-sense and reasonable solutions to make Sammamish even stronger.

Sammamish is an amazing place to live and as City Councilmember, I look forward to protecting what we love about our community and being a voice for all Sammamish families.
