Walk the Ward
I can’t take one more Zoom meeting! But I would love to connect with islanders to listen and learn about what matters most to you. Or just to get outside and enjoy our many island trails and scenic roads. For the time being, appropriately masked and socially-distanced, of course.
Join me for Walk the Ward!

  • First Saturday of each month at 10 a.m.
  • Location will vary – let’s explore the south ward!


I will post the location (meeting spot) and details about the walk (distance, terrain, notable features, suggested topics for discussion, etc.) the first Thursday of the month on Instagram. If you are not on Instagram, please email me at for Walk the Ward details.

Councilmember Carr’s Background

While in graduate school at the University of Washington, I purchased a home and moved to the island in 2000. Within a few months, I dove into my first community volunteer adventure: as a member of the citizen committee formed to develop goals and policies for the City’s first non-motorized transportation plan. In the 20+ years since, I have continued to participate and engage in community efforts because I believe we all have a role to play in what makes this place we call home so great. I enjoy volunteering in a variety of capacities on the island, with an emphasis on land use, food, farmland, and natural places.  


I applied for the appointment of the vacant south ward position to meaningfully contribute to my community. As a land use/natural resource planner, my aim is to help the City Council translate big picture goals into legislation to achieve those goals. I have spent my career at the intersection of natural resources, people, and regulation: exactly where I think a majority of the City’s most pressing issues lie. Having worked for the City’s Department of Planning and Community Development for five years, I am the first former City staff member to serve on the City Council.
