I believe in transparent government, where people are ethical and held accountable. From my perspective, not everyone shares those values. Fire Commissioners should always recuse themselves from issues where they might benefit personally, such as a merger agreement with another fire department—in which they happen to work.

During my 32 years in the fire service, I’ve managed policy, budget, and operations—experience I’ll use to help Woodinville Fire improve efficiency and effectiveness, while serving you. The contract with Eastside Fire is a good start, providing enhanced training and career growth for firefighters while saving taxpayers $15 million.

As a Fire Marshal, I’m also aware of impacts that fire regulations have on local businesses and will work to minimize burdens. Finally, I’ll bring diversity to the board and work for inclusivity. I’m proud to be supported by so many local businesses and community leaders, and I will donate any compensation I receive.

When you first elected me to serve as a Fire Commissioner in November 1997, our newly formed City had annexed for fire protection services with the District. We were also facing uncertainty of future annexations of portions of the District by other bordering cities. Additionally, we needed to provide a well matched and positioned workforce.

We've been able to enjoy a Gold Standard department at every level. We are well trained, staffed and capable of handling the majority of our first alarm responses. We enjoy strong financial independence, have no debt, we own everything we have and are amongst the lowest tax collection rates consistently, year after year.

I am concerned about our anticipated rapid growth downtown, our continued Wildland Fire readiness and proper execution of the recently signed ILA with Eastside Fire. Should you return me to office, I pledge my continued focus and energy in your best interest.
