During my tenure as County Commissioner I have made a difference in Wasco County. I bring a rural perspective and a balance to the Court.

Following are just some of the accomplishments my public service has helped achieve:
- Creating opportunities for economic development in Wasco County
- Working to provide expanded recreation areas for our youth
- Helped develop fire safety standards to protect our citizens
- Established working relationships with our rural cities and communities

- Supported County efforts to move towards E-Government
I very much enjoy serving the citizens of Wasco County. I will continue to work hard on their behalf with the same dedication and integrity I have shown in the past 5 years. I would appreciate your support of me for another 4 years. No individual can solve every problem but together we can make a difference.
