Help us go the extra mile for Wahkiakum County!
I am a two term county commissioner, serving Wahkiakum County from a working man’s approach. As a lifelong commercial fisherman, my work is paid by the pound. I bring that work ethic to my service as county commissioner. I serve. I see myself as a public servant. I do my best to be approachable, and I think most people in the county know that I encourage them to be involved in local process. I am involved in community groups, like Lions Club, Grays River Grange, and lately Sons of Norway, so I can hear the issues and be part of our community, without a filter.
I am a coalition builder. I have worked with local, state, and regional entities to make Wahkiakum stronger. I have always advocated for Wahkiakum. It is a big part of this job to make sure our outside partners understand how we work together, so we don’t get left out.
I am proud that as a county board we have worked together and have been professional. In a time with national divide, we can work from issue to issue, and keep moving forward. Wahkiakum County first, period.
I take the responsibility of being a county commissioner very seriously. I not only take my fair share of commissioner duties as assigned, but I look for ways to leverage this position to help the county.
