Candidate Statement

While best known for my work as Executive Director of the
Arlington Fly-In, I have also been actively involved with many of our area’s volunteer organizations, including the Airport Commission, Arlington’s Economic Development committee, and board member of the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce.  Additionally, I have been the President of the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation for the three years, and recently served as chair for the Emergency Medical Services levy, which was overwhelmingly supported by Arlington voters and will benefit our community for years to come.

I am generous with my time, energy and experience, and I look forward to working hard for you.  I know how budgets work, how to balance competing priorities, and how to make difficult choices.

As your mayor, my focus will be on:

  • Economic development that supports businesses and stimulates job growth;
  • Ensuring  safety in our community;
  • Preserving and promoting those aspects which make Arlington such a great place to live;
  • Delivering responsive government to benefit our citizens.

Being part of this community is my sincere pleasure.  I look forward to serving as your mayor and leading us forward together.
