After working with large public water systems for 30 years, I have developed a deep commitment to community and public service. I know very keenly that water systems provide the lifeblood to communities, businesses, and homes like yours, that of clean, safe drinking water.


I have learned how hard it is when your water rates keep going up, making it difficult to raise a family or operate a business. I will work to get your rates back to a reasonable level, while ensuring that Covington Water District provides safe, reliable, good quality water and excellent customer service to each of you.


My experience and knowledge, combined with my strong commitment to customer service and making wise, balanced financial and management decisions, will help the Covington Water District be more efficient and effective in serving our community.


I would appreciate your vote, as I look forward to serving as your commissioner.

Jeff is running for office to insure the benefits of past investments by rate payers continue to allow the board to reduce or maintain current water rates as we did this year.


The District faces challenges as we move forward: controlling cost, environmental protection, emergency preparedness, development and maintenance of the infrastructure, and managing regulations from governmental agencies. Jeff will focus the district to operate in a responsible manner by utilizing current resource to meet these challenges.


Jeff experiences as a negotiator and commissioner allows him to find solutions to complex problems, identify opportunities for future cost savings, work with fellow commissioners to develop appropriate policy’s and to collaborate with neighboring districts to find efficiencies.


Jeff is committed to ensuring the district operates in a professional manner providing safe water and excellent customer service. Jeff looks forward to serving the public as a commissioner and would appreciate your vote.
