ABOUT SOLEIL

Soleil Community 1 Web.jpg

As a lifelong resident of Des Moines I understand the things we all want for our unique and beautiful waterfront community. And as an African-American and Haitian- American woman, I also recognize the value of adding diversity to your government.

I began high school right here at Highline Community College. Then, after much hard work and overcoming many challenges, finally attaining a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University Of Washington--the first in my family to do so.

After graduation, I worked as a Kindergarten Teacher then Office Manager for Highline Public Schools. This experience gave me the passion and know-how to ensure that all our students are treated with equity. On weekends I now teach ESL to students living and working in South King County.

 

In my spare time I also work with the Seattle King County and Vancouver NAACP to promote diversity and inclusive education across Washington State.

 

PRIORITIES

I'm running for City of Des Moines Councilmember to:

  1. ​Completely revamp the transparency, accountability and public engagement of your government. Educate constituents with free weekend classes in local government!​

  2. ​​Improve our City’s participation in regional government so that we get our fair share of Capital Improvement funding on big projects like the Marina!​

  3. Create new opportunities for the many youth and adults now re-entering the workforce!​

  4. Focus on your neighborhood. Fix long-neglected roads. Create consistent signage and street lighting. Make local utilities more accountable.

  5. Create a community-based Airport Committee to effectively address the noise and health impacts from Sea-Tac Airport.
