“Lacey’s military service gives her unique perspective on the personal and physical demands required of police officers. This allows her to be well informed as to what our needs as police officers truly are. Her communication style is direct, focused and refreshing. You know you are hearing what she thinks and not what she thinks you want to hear. Her vision of what Beaverton can be is inspiring and we are proud to support her.”

“It is exciting to see a young person entering politics. Lacey has demonstrated leadership through her strong commitment to helping homeless youth in the Beaverton area. Lacey and I worked together on a kickball fundraiser as part of our culminating project for Leadership Beaverton a few years ago. She has remained an integral part of the planning team for Home Runs for Homeless Youth and has since joined the HomePlate Youth Services board of directors. I continue to work with Lacey on the board of directors for Leadership Beaverton and am consistently impressed by her suggestions and ideas for keeping the program fresh and relevant. Lacey will provide a new perspective to the Beaverton City Council.”
–Kylie Bayer


“My daughter has had the privilege of playing lacrosse for Lacey for the last 5 years. Lacey has been a tremendous influence and an incredible role model for all the girls. Her work ethic is second to none. Lacey is was one of the most intelligent, inspirational and articulate people I’ve ever met. She has done so much to grow the sport of lacrosse in oregon, and specifically Beaverton. While the sport is important, she uses it as an avenue to teach life lessons to the girls and has instilled the importance of giving back to the community. The JV & varsity teams regularly volunteer with various organizations that Lacey is involved in.

As a parent, I’m so grateful for my daughter to have such a strong female role model….WE look up to Lacey more than anyone! I asked my daughter what words she would use to describe Lacey. Here’s what she said: Energetic, confident, funny, dry sense of humor, honest, hard worker, passionate.

Aren’t those qualities what you would like to see in a politician? I know I would.”
–Linda Johnson


“I have the privilege of coaching with Lacey at Beaverton High School where through many years of hard work she has created a thriving, service-oriented community of young leaders. Lacey cares about each player and helps them develop the life skills they will need after high school. She sets the bar high and gives the players the tools they need to exceed her expectations. Not only is she an inspiring leader, but her care for the community is contagious. In the last few years I have seen her rally groups for city cleanups, kickball fundraisers, sock drives, food repacking, and much more. I have never met anyone who loves Beaverton as much as Lacey, Beaty for City Council!”
–Sarah Keane


“Lacey and I have served on the Visioning Advisory Committee for the City of Beaverton since 2010. The event that epitomizes her passion and capabilities is our first annual neighborhood clean-up project, which we nicknamed “Rock the Block.” What some thought might be a 20-30 person effort ended up being a solid project involving nearly 200 volunteers, in large part thanks to Lacey’s infectious community spirit. She will be a fresh, intelligent, in-touch, and modern addition to the City Council.”
–Cathy R.


“I was fortunate to serve with Lacey in the Army and am blessed to still be friends with her today. Being in combat is an extreme stressor but Lacey emerged as a natural leader with an infectious positive attitude. She made a big difference there and I know she will continue to make a positive impact on Beaverton. If you are looking for a hard working, smart, honest, passionate yet professional creative leader you will be lucky to have Lacey as your councilwoman.”
–Kelly


“Lacey and I completed the Beaverton Citizens Academy together. We were both very interested in learning about the departments role in the the city to provide service in the best ways possible. She showed wonderful enthusiasm in class and was usually the first to volunteer for an exercise. Right away I could see her desire to make a difference in the community. I have since worked with Lacey on events throughout the city and I am excited to see what she will do next.”
–Mike Lupo


“I serve on the HomePlate Youth Services Board of Directors with Lacey, and I have met very few people in my life who are more passionate and dedicated to their community than Lacey. Lacey is organized, informed, and extremely hard-working. She always has Beaverton and local issues and interests at the heart of all her decisions. She is a natural leader and I believe the council would be lucky to have her!”
