South King Fire & Rescue is at a cross roads which requires experienced elected fire officials to set and maintain the course for the next 10-15 years to address the growing demands for service and the growth in greater Federal Way and Des Moines. We need to hire a new Fire Chief in 2018. Need to build an additional fire station to better serve all the citizens and businesses in the fire district and to maintain our important Class 2 Fire Insurance rating!


My experience and leadership as a fire commissioner will enhance the fire districts ability to work the Strategic Leadership Plan and maintain the course to provide a long range stabilized funding source, top quality leaders, and delivery of quality professional services to the citizens and visitors to South King Fire & Rescue; something everyone in the fire district have come to recognize as providing the best bang for their buck with the dedicated focus on providing professional fire and emergency services to those in need!


Thank You for your support/trust in electing me as your Fire Commissioner to represent you in leading the way in the next chapter of 68 years of South King Fire & Rescue!
