My goal is to bring solid leadership and experience to the City Council. As the city grows, future discussions will revolve around capital improvements and best use of funding. As a small business owner with a construction background, I believe my experience will bring new perspective to the council that will benefit residents and businesses within the city.
I understand the importance of sound budgeting and smart investments. I believe our leaders should be honest, open minded, have integrity and be accountable. I have owned my own business for 15 years.
All my adult life I have been involved in other types of leadership roles other than my business. I have been on Liberty Lake’s Planning Commission for two years and served during my 2nd year as chairman. I also served 21 years with Army National Guard, retiring as a 1st Sergeant E-8. I am a two-time president of the Spokane Home Builders Association, and was a Building Industry Association of Washington builder director for six years. My biggest accomplishment regarding community service is the year I built and sold a home for which all the proceeds went to the Children’s Miracle Network.
After retiring from military service and representing the home building industry for eight years, I decided it was time to get involved at the local level and be a part of the equation a bit closer to home.
I have lived in Liberty Lake for 20 years. I am happily married with five grown kids and five grandkids. I enjoy boating in the summer and a mid-winter visit to a much warmer climate for a week.
I am committed to my responsibilities as a council member, so please don’t hesitate to contact me with any comments or suggestions for the betterment of the city. Thank you!
