VISION STATEMENT | PROFESSIONAL | VOLUNTEER  highlights

  • VISION statement

    "I believe we can bring Camas to it's full potential as a place of community with nurtured common interests, affordability, and a safe place to live.


    The culmination of my professional, personal experiences, and a “get er’ done” attitude will bring new insight to the council.


    I am a Gulf War veteran, a professional who has worked at NASA and also lived and worked overseas for a number of years. I’ve effectively communicated with many personalities and peoples of different backgrounds to complete projects on time and under budget.


    Adding depth to the Council with my experience in project management and data analysis should especially assist with growth planning. I will champion quality growth which comes from careful planning so as not to lose the reason why people move to Camas in the first place.


    As a home, car owner and resident in the Gorge 12 years, I believe processes and manpower should be scrutinized before additional property taxes or new license fees are instituted. The "needs should be given a closer look, than the "wants". Let’s first make our current infrastructure meet the highest standards before we raise taxes.


     I sincerely thank you for your vote!"
