Since my appointment to the Board in 2003, I have been committed & dedicated to insuring quality water services at a reasonable rate to the families, private sector & communities in the Water District 125 Service Area.


To stay current with state & federal water-related rules and regulations, I have fulfilled the requirements for certifications offered by the Washington Assn. of Sewer and Water District's Platinum Level Commissioners Certificate-2015 and American Water Works Assn's Public Water Officials Certificate-2018. 


In recognition of Water District 125's level of service, management, and leadership, the State Auditor presented the District with the 2018 Stewardship Award. The first time a Water and or Sewer District was a recipient. I look forward to serving you- our rate payers- in 2020. Thank you for your support & encourage you to contact me if I can be of assistance in dealing with water-related issues.
