Amy Walen, Washington State House Representative & Former Kirkland Mayor 

As a Human Services Commissioner, Falcone’s ability to see opportunities and passionately advocate for progress has already greatly benefited our city, and she will make even greater contributions on the city council.

Dave Asher, Kirkland City Councilmember 

Amy is a hard worker, smart, and completely dedicated to doing what's right for our city. I'm looking forward to serving with her on the council!

- Toby Nixon, Kirkland City Councilmember 

Amy’s leadership in the Lake Washington School District and PTA has been integral in creating safer walk to school routes in her community and enacting positive change for students in special needs programs. Both efforts will benefit families for years to come.

- Cassandra Sage, Lake Washington School District Board Member 

As a planning commissioner and fellow Finn Hill Board Member, I believe Amy Falcone and her focus on smart growth and public safety is exactly what we need on the City Council. She has been a tireless advocate and volunteer for our community and as a human services commissioner understands the needs of the most vulnerable among us.... I am thrilled she is running. 

- Mathew Pruitt, Kirkland Planning Commissioner and Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance Board Member

Amy Falcone is a strong advocate for all children and the most vulnerable people in our community, as she has demonstrated in her work as PTA President and Legislative Advocacy VP and Kirkland Human Services Commissioner. She gets things done, working collaboratively with others in service to the community. I'm confident that she'll be a compassionate and effective city councilmember and she has my enthusiastic endorsement."

- Shelley Kloba, Washington State House Representative & Former Kirkland City Councilmember

Amy will bring a fresh energy and perspective to balance the interests of a growing city.

- Sue Keller, Former Park Board Chairperson 

Amy was a pleasure to work with on the Human Services Commission.  She has the capability to see an issue from many different perspectives and gave consideration to the thoughts and needs of others in our community.  She was able to make difficult decisions in a thoughtful manner making the best use of funds from our city.  Amy’s skill set would be an asset to City Council.

Kimberly Scott, Kirkland Human Services Commission Chair

So happy to see smart, compassionate women like Amy seeking office. As a dedicated Human Services board member and parent to three young kids, she brings a fresh voice to Kirkland and advocacy for those often underrepresented by city government.

Kirstin Larson, Community Leader

This is SO exciting! Incredibly encouraging to see the next generation of involved citizens committing their time and talent to doing good, and now to see Amy Falcone take this next step. Amy will bring vision, wisdom and energy to Kirkland City Council joining the thoughtful and responsive elects who are already there.

Bea Nahon- Past Co-Chair of the Kirkland Alliance of Neighborhoods

Amy has the commitment and passion to be an effective advocate on the Kirkland City Council to lead the city in a positive direction. She is an excellent listener, and cares deeply about making a difference, not only for her family, but for all families in the Kirkland community.

- Inger Kirkman, Middle School Teacher

Amy is a dear friend and the hardest-working, most civic-minded person I know. She is that person who truly cares deeply about EVERYONE in our community and has spent years working for our kids and schools and striving to create a community that supports our teachers, police officers, fire fighters, etc. in being able to both live and work in Kirkland. If you see all those signs for community service meetings, neighborhood alliance meetings, listening sessions, open mic comment nights, and trips to the legislature and wonders who finds the time to go to all those, Amy is the one who is there every time. If you're a fellow Kirkland resident, please vote for her for city council come election day.

 Emily McCalib, Seattle native and Kirkland resident, mom of two elementary school kids

Our daughters and subsequently you & my significant other (Mary) met at picnic in the park at Crestwood Park...We noticed...that you can identify with our [school walk route] safety concerns not only for our children but all of our neighbors. We want to fully give you our endorsement and support and look forward to making our votes count in your favor Nov 5.
