Why did you decide to run for this position?
What are three major issues facing your fire district?
Of the three, which one is the most urgent?
What unique qualities do you bring to this job?
I was appointed to fill the seat of commissioner Richard Chesmore who died while serving. I am running for another term because I now have training and experience and because it is difficult to recruit commissioners in our small district.
1. recruiting volunteers
2. getting sufficient response to calls because volunteers are often working or otherwise not available
3. aging equipment and buildings
volunteer recruiting is most urgent
while not unique, my training and experience are helpful
