Welcome!


Bellevue is an exceptional city that brings innovation and life together — a magnet for talent where businesses and high-tech companies exist alongside beautiful neighborhoods, vibrant green spaces and excellent schools.

I believe everyone in Bellevue deserves a chance to build a future here and enjoy it for a lifetime. That is why I am running for Bellevue City Council.

I am a public school parent, biotech professional, and community leader who will work hard to bring a collaborative, data-driven approach to deliver real results.

Let’s work to shape the future of this amazing city - together!

Thank you for all you do,
Vandana

Bellevue Reporter: Hybrid garden groundbreaking Saturday at Lake Hills Greenbelt

April 22, 2015

The Bellevue Reporter writes:

A recently formed nonprofit, GSBP saw an opportunity to promote social business by partnering with Chisebuka to create a community garden where volunteers can learn sustainable organic farm practices and take a share of the yield; a garden that provides produce at the farmers market — a sliding price scale applied to assist low-income customers — and puts any profit back into programs. For GSBP, it’s setting an example for the social business model it promotes through its evolving online educational platform.

“You’re trying to fly an airplane while you’re building it,” said Vandana Slatter, who serves on the GSBP board and the board for partnering nonprofit Farmer Frog. “It’s kind of at the seed stage, you could say.”
