I’m C. Keiki Stacy Weigle.
Keiki (pronounced like “Kaye-Key”) is short for Keikilani and one of the middle names given to me from the elders on the Hawaiian side of my family. Originally from and educated in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’ve been fortunate to have lived in several states and several countries for my work.
I relocated with my family to Okanogan in 2015. Summers of my youth were spent camping, hunting and fishing in Chelan, Douglas, Grant and Okanogan Counties. My family loves the area and my children want to return home after college to live in the area.
From 1978 – 2004, I worked in the fast-paced rollercoaster ride known as the Technology Industry, in and related to Silicon Valley. I primarily served a management and team-building capacity for innovative start-up companies, including Advanced Micro Devices, Sperry Univac Defense Systems, Osbourne Computer, Breakthrough Software, Symantec, CHRONOS Technologies, Plum Hall, Baltimore Technologies and Forterra Systems.
Since 1996, I’ve done business development and product launch projects as a consultant, streamlining my business model to taking on no more than 3 clients per year since 2006. Having travelled for much of my son’s life, I was grateful to spend 2014 through 2018 home with him through his high school years.
I have been active in human and civil rights since 1975 and involved as a volunteer for various LGBTQ rights, equality advocacy and political organizations since 1995. I currently serving as Vice Chair for the Okanogan County Democratic Central Committee and Founder/Chair of #ResistForGood Indivisible.
Over the last 25 years, I have also enjoyed community service, most recently with Mahalo Meals for wildland firefighters, and volunteering at the Omak Stampede, doing ticket sales and catering for volunteers.
The activities I enjoy in my leisure time include Gourmet Ethnic Cuisine Cooking and Catering, Hula (Kahiko and Auana), Taiko, hiking, kayaking, fishing, hunting, snorkeling, scuba, snowshoeing and skiing.
I look forward to meeting and getting to know you as I travel through our district. I hope that you get to know me, too. If we see eye-to-eye on the key issues, I hope that I can earn your confidence and your vote.
Thank you for your consideration. Mahalo nua loa.

If you want to learn more about me, please ask. I’m straight up and honest on how I’ve grown, worked, lived and loved family, career, life and living. You can also look at my LinkedIn profile at https://www.linkedin.com/in/kweigle
Truthfully… I’m going to break the mold on what a candidate looks like and how a campaign is run… I’m late in the game, with family needs that come first, the longshot and underdog, stretched thin on time, self funding so far, with no paid staff, volunteers greatly appreciated and bringing my own rules to change the game!
Campaigning heavier is part of the plan, post son’s graduation, visiting family leaving town and state convention… That version of heavier campaigning may not be the traditional style folks are used to but may be open to, more than most realize. Regardless, I look forward to meeting folks and small groups of folks in the months ahead to listen, learn and present the work needed that I see needing to get done!
