Education: No information submitted.
Occupation: Retired fire officer

For the past twelve years it has been my honor to be a commissioner for the Shoreline Fire Department.

Prior to my retirement I served as a volunteer firefighter, career firefighter and officer, all with Shoreline.  I know and understand what is needed to maintain a well-balanced fire department.

Regionalization has become the norm in the fire service with many small departments merging to form Regional Fire Authorities.  There is little doubt this trend will continue as many departments struggle with financial and staffing concerns.  Like other departments, Shoreline will explore options if the need arises but will not compromise services.  Thanks to the constant support of our citizens, Shoreline Fire is very well staffed and financially sound.I am seeking a third term so I can remain actively involved in assuring that our future needs are met, and we maintain the service levels we need.
