Hobbies/Interests: Family, Community, Culture
What I love about Sequim is that no matter how many people move here from other places, Sequim has managed to maintain a small town atmosphere. I want to see that continue. I believe city government should be focused on the needs of our community, be transparent in decision making and act fiscally responsible. My family has deep roots here. I know this community and plan to ensure our decisions and deliberations follow the Open Public Meetings Act. I want to focus on following codes, laws, rules and procedures as well as rely on the expertise of staff and make sure we strike a balance with fulfilling without financially burdening our community and businesses.
