Statement:

I am a 17 year resident of Newcastle, with 10 years experience in Corporate America, 11 years of community leadership, and the Co-Owner of local favorite, Frosty Barrel. I am best known for advocating for small businesses, co-chairing a PTSA auction raising over $230,000, volunteering with Girl Scouts of Western Washington, and successfully managing our business to survive the global pandemic. 

 

My priority is making Newcastle a vibrant local business community, and this economic growth will help pay for our top community priorities. I will always advocate for public safety, our small businesses, and protecting our most vulnerable.  I believe in accountability, transparency, and diversity, in all its forms.  I look forward to working with the other council members on Newcastle’s Tomorrow, Today!

Education: Accounting/Law classes at UW, Certified Public Accountant, (CPA)
Occupation: Semi-retired, CEO Wicks, Instructor of Accounting/Taxes at VocTech College. CPA.
Statement:

Newcastle has a financial crisis from imprudent financial management.  As a Public Accountant I have audited financial statements, managed financial staff and dealt successfully with the IRS.

 

During the present City budget cycle, Staff stated the budget had no cost reductions possible.  I discovered that Street Maintenance could be paid with REET funds, thereby reducing the deficit $313,000.  I believe, through careful analysis, similar savings opportunities will exist in future budgets.

 

My goal remains the same as when I was elected four years ago, reduce expenses and no new taxes.  I have been outvoted in my advocation of fiscal sustainability but I will not give up.  In the past, as a CPA, I've trained clients how to prepare budgets enabling them to become successful and profitable.  Allow me to restore fiscal discipline and financial stability to Newcastle, keeping it an affordable and desirable place to live.  I'd appreciate your vote.
