I am a local Police Officer often called to respond along with personnel of District 1. They provide excellent emergency service but deserve more support to include receiving the necessary training and equipment to do their job safely and efficiently.
Our community needs a new Commissioner who will support improvements in Fire/EMS services. I will build confidence in our department’s elected governance by making the Board sensitive to our communities’ needs.
I carefully weigh all facts without bias before making decisions. Department readiness is not to be taken lightly.
I am endorsed by IAFF Local 1828 representing District 1 Firefighters and also supported by former fire chiefs of Burien, Lynnwood, Everett as well as numerous Fire Commissioners and Police Officers from around the state.
My background along with experience as a first responder – having a University of Washington Business Management degree – enable me to make sound decisions on your behalf. I lead a Washington Association of Sheriff’s and Police Chiefs’ statewide program for the youth in our community: “Law Enforcement Exploring Advisors”. We instruct teenagers interested in Law Enforcement to “respect diversity, human dignity and civil rights.” We should expect nothing less from all Commissioners.
