I am proud to support my friend Varisha Khan in her candidacy for Redmond City Council. Varisha is an empathetic leader who has demonstrated her capacity for effective leadership in a variety of manners.
As a student at the University of Washington (UW), Varisha helped co-found a diversity commission through the Associated Students of the University of Washington, and served as the commission’s first director. During her tenure, Varisha did the critical work of establishing this new entity in the world of UW diversity commissions, setting up both the commission and future directors for success. During this time, she was also elected to represent her district as a national elector in the 2016 election cycle out of thousands of individuals.
After UW, Varisha continues to serve her community, working at several local civic advocacy groups such as OneAmerica. Now she’s running for Redmond City Council, further establishing herself as a leader committed to equity and inclusion.
Varisha is an authentic agent of change who lifts others up as she goes through life. She will be an excellent addition to Redmond City Council, and I encourage everyone to learn more about her platform at www.electvarishakhan.com. I’m proud to support her, and I hope we can count on your support, too.
