Coal Creek Utility District ratepayers deserve responsive and respectful customer service and high quality water and sewer services at reasonable rates that provide value to them and their families.  Our district has some of the best maintained and most up to date infrastructure in Washington and I’m  proud to have had the opportunity to be part of the successful management of that essential public asset.  My 30+ years in consulting engineering gives me an understanding of the technical aspects of the operation of the district’s water and sewer systems and I enjoy using my education and experience to represent the interests of our ratepayers.

It has truly been a privilege and pleasure to represent our district’s ratepayers. I respectfully ask for your vote so I may continue to serve the ratepayers and work with the district to provide the best possible water and sewer service while striving to control costs.

As a father, I know that the minimum federal standards are outdated and insufficient. I want to help us hold our utilities to a higher standard. A healthier standard for ourselves and for our children. Raising awareness is one step of that - a good first step. But we cannot and should not wait for the federal government to react on matters where health and safety is an issue, such as our drinking water. We should lead the way in making our utilities safer and healthier. We can provide the example that will help push the people of our country to demand better. To demand more from the tax dollars they pay.
