Occupation: Project Management Consultant

During my tenure with KCWD No. 20, I have facilitated numerous system upgrades including the rehabilitation of water main piping, the installation of new electronic systems that serve our reservoir, and the procurement of new security surveillance systems to protect District property and assets.  I have also pursued increased certification training of our field technicians and assisted with the merger of KCWD No. 45 with KCWD No. 20.

As one of your KCWD No. 20 Commissioners, I will continue working hard to provide our community with the purest, cleanest water available at the lowest rates possible.  I am a lifelong Burien resident, retired Military Officer, and KCWD No. 20 ratepayer just like you, and I will continue to represent each ratepayer with fairness, transparency, and equality.

I would be honored to have your vote.  Thank you!

Our commission combines decades of experience, but is dangerously outdated in communication and transparency. The district’s website is the only communication method available, and is mobile-unfriendly, with barriers to obtaining records or attending meetings. No minutes or records are available, the most recent regional updates are from 2015, and the annual water quality report is provided in dense jargon with notes that state “This is important. Have someone translate for you.”

Our sewer district maintains records of minutes for all meetings going back eleven years, a translatable website with one-click meeting links, and detailed information for agendas, contacts, and questions. This should be our baseline, with additional communication to engage public education and interest. 

This water district should be “someone to translate for you” and clearly communicate technical information to the public. I will overhaul and modernize these practices, because our local government should be as crystal-clear as our water.
