Like many of you, I am a hard-working, tax-paying, lifelong resident of Enumclaw. Over the last 20 years I’ve invested many hours of dedicated to service to this community, and now, with a family of my own, I’m proud to still call it ‘home.’


 I am not a career politician, though I’ve always followed and participated in political events. My past has provided opportunities to lead groups of people, in both business and volunteer settings. I have been able worked for others in the corporate world as well as started and successfully ran a business of my own.


I feel strongly that over the last several years too many projects that are good for our town are slipping through the cracks and not getting done. From infrastructure like bridges and roads to the events that make us a community, I’m dedicated to doing the right thing for all of us.

As a resident, father and volunteer firefighter, I have a vested interest in Enumclaw and a vision for our future.


Development in Enumclaw has occurred far more quickly than our infrastructure can support and at the expenses of the citizens. We need infrastructure and roads before any further development takes place. We cannot change what has already been done, but we can ensure that the Enumclaw we know and love is not lost to poorly planned development.


As a firefighter, public safety is important to me. I see first hand the problems that develop when youth and our rising senior population do not have access to the resources they need. The city should establish partnership programs for youth and seniors as an investment against crime, drugs and social decline.


I have two sons who should grow up in a safe community they can be proud to call their home.

My wife and I chose to live in Enumclaw because it is a wonderful little city far removed from the craziness of Seattle. I am running for council because I want to keep it that way.


I will prioritize public safety. It is one of the most important functions of city government and those who protect us need our support to ensure continued safety.


I will work to reduce traffic congestion. There is no reason traffic jams should exist here, period. I will be an advocate on this issue and work with other elected officials to fix our traffic problems, particularly on 410.


Finally, I want to ensure financial sustainability. It is important we live within our means. We need to preserve a legacy for future generations. Prudent budgeting will allow taxes to stay low while still providing essential services.


I respectfully ask for your vote, Thank you!
