Hi, I’m Kathryn, and I’m so glad you’re here…

I am a positive person, a deep thinker, instinctual, a student of humanity and culture, a strategy and innovation enthusiast, and a dash of a contrarian. I love meeting new people and learning new things. Interested in sharing ideas? Please reach out and say hi!

There is more work to do; but, I believe in Redmond. The last few years have been tumultuous; through partnerships, local service providers, dedicated city leaders, and committed citizens, our city is thriving”

-Kathryn Osborne

Our local rates of homelessness directly correlate to housing costs and rental vacancy rates. I have, and will, work to bring creative housing solutions to Redmond. I will continue promoting Redmond as a business friendly city and secure additional living-wage jobs. I will advocate for service providers serving vulnerable groups at risk for addiction, violence, and homelessness. I support projects that bring mental health services to Redmond. I stand against those threatening the safety of our children. I support efforts that offer safe activities for youth, seniors, veterans, families, and individuals. I will encourage the use of technology for communication, transparency, and access to data. Through collaborations with city staff and community leaders, we will manage growth and obstacles through innovative and proactive problem-solving.
