Town where you live McCleary, WA
Experience (300 characters max) No previous council experience. I do hold a BA in Political Science. I have also served on several community committees including an advisory committee for serving tribal youth.
Like many of Washington's small towns, we have many issues with our roads and streets. Pot holes and erosion are a major issue with most of the streets in McCleary. In addition, we are currently out of compliance in regards to our solid waste disposal. With a small budget these are tough issues to solve, but the current council has secured some federal funding to address these issues.
This is not currently a large issue for McCleary. The current services being offered by the various churches and through the food bank appear to be providing for the homeless that we have.
I am committed to ensuring that the cost of utilities does not overwhelm our senior citizens. If elected I will make it a priority to keep utilities, levies, and taxes do not overwhelm the citizens of McCleary.
Currently, this is not a known issue in McCleary. While the citizens of McCleary likely fall on both sides of the issue it is not a priority for the citizens of McCleary or one that drives our politics.
We have an aging population living on a fixed income.
As I listed only one issue I would say that striving to ensure the financial well-being of our elderly is a major concern for the city.
I believe that open and sincere conversation is the best way to foster a working relationship. Keeping myself available whether by phone, email, or visit. I do not foresee any issues working with the current mayor and expect him to win reelection.
