Zahra Roach calls Pasco, Washington home although Anchorage, Alaska is the place of her birth and early childhood. Councilwoman Roach began her term on Pasco City Council in January 2020. Prior to Pasco City Council, she was on the Pasco Planning Commission for eight years. Pasco has grown exponentially since 2000, doubling its population. Councilwoman Roach is enthusiastic about guiding Pasco’s growth in a sustainable and meaningful way.
Starting her first term in 2020, Navarra Carr serves as the Deputy Mayor for the City of Port Angeles and is excited to represent her community in this new capacity. Navarra enjoys spending time outside, including backpacking in Olympic National Park, sailing on the Strait, and visiting the local farmer’s market. These interests led Navarra to her current work as the office manager for North Olympic Land Trust, a nonprofit that permanently conserves lands in Clallam County, Washington.
Dani Madrone was recently elected to the Olympia City Council. She has a career in Puget Sound recovery with the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission. She has worked for several local organizations on issues of the environment, housing, climate change, transportation, and food systems. She has been an advocate for urban density, particularly through her activism with Olympians for People-Oriented Places.
