It has been my honor to serve as your Water District Commissioner for the past seven years and I would like to ask for your vote again.

My involvement began when a neighbor suggested that I consider running as a water district commissioner because, as he put it, “You’ve got good business sense, you ask meaningful questions, and you’re always able to explain the issues that are relevant to a water district.” Thanks to that neighbor, I’ve served as a water district commissioner for 17 years, first in Burien and most recently for Shoreline Water District.

During this time, I’ve worked to ensure wise and prudent use of your money, established proactive emergency procedures and helped secure low-interest loans to manage ongoing water system upgrades.

As a small business owner for over twenty years, I know the importance of honesty and open communications. As a board member of the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce, I understand how important it is to give back to the community in order to help it thrive and grow.

I pledge to continue to seek what’s best for all of our ratepayers with the proven knowledge and experience I’ve demonstrated as your commissioner.
