This means listening to and respecting the contributors and risk-takers who create jobs and grow industry, while standing up for our citizens. It means utilizing our resources – especially water – to the benefit of our economy. And it means aggressively pitching Umatilla County to developers looking for a place to locate and bring new jobs and opportunities.
Umatilla County can make the most of its geographical advantages by protecting and expanding its transportation network. We can transport a wide variety of goods to any market, domestic or international. The need to maintain and build those assets is critical and will give us a competitive advantage while increasing our quality of life.
People choose to live in Umatilla County because of our community values. We can enhance that lifestyle by making sure people and property are protected, keeping strong lines of communication open between residents and elected officials, and encouraging collaboration between employers and educators to expand the skilled workforce and create more family-wage jobs.
I believe in Umatilla County’s potential, and that’s why I’m running for Umatilla County Commissioner.
I’ve been fortunate to live and raise a family in this county and I want to see the opportunities we’ve enjoyed passed along to the next generation. I’m ready to get to work to make sure we’re prepared to maintain our growth as we become a more dynamic and prosperous county and an even better place to live.
I have decades of active participation and leadership on local and regional boards, committees, events and projects. Through this experience, I've built a skill set to move forward through conflict and bring together diverse interests to create successful and sustainable results. No positive outcome is possible without the ability to interact, understand, consider, and integrate conflicting views to a consensus of understanding and agreement.
I know the value of being connected, and carrying your voice into government decisions. I will carry on a family and generational tradition of tirelessly advocating for Umatilla County and its vibrant, energetic, diverse community.
