Why do you want to serve Liberty Lake?
With the permission of the electorate, it would be an honor to continue to serve the City of Liberty Lake. I offer a unique perspective to the City and the Council having served in multiple communities. Some of my significant contributions have been to limit political signage in Liberty Lake through my Minority Dissenting Opinion adopted by City Council when serving on the Planning Commission. Also, introduced the Strategic Plan initiative to the City, and along with Council and Staff, developed and adopted it for the benefit of the City for many years in the future. I have also contributed to the managed growth and sound financial management of the City resources through the budgeting process with minimal debt and taxes. It is important to serve the entire community, residential and business, and not just the neighborhood in which I reside.
What do you see as Liberty Lake's greatest challenge? How will you overcome it?
Liberty Lake is one of the fastest growing cities in the State of Washington. The greatest challenge will be to manage future growth of the community through continued strategic planning, creative financial management, and sound budgeting practices while maintaining a high level of City services. The eminent challenge is Harvard Road/Henry Road/Barker Road projects. It is important to utilize proactive management techniques and not reactionary ones.
What do you see as Liberty Lake's greatest strength? How will you build on that?
The greatest strength of the City is the people who volunteer to serve on the various boards, commissions, and in organizations that facilitate and support a high Quality of Life in Liberty Lake. Let us not forget the qualified and dedicated employees of the City, who make it possible for us to have a safe, secure, and prosperous community.
How long have you been a resident of Liberty Lake?
10 Years in November
In which Liberty Lake neighborhood do you live?
Rocky Hill
