Experience (300 characters max) Owner/Broker Manchester Realty 1996 to present. Former owner of Puget Sound Appraisal Company. Former registered representative for a Securities firm. Former Branch Manager for Olympic Savings and Loan.
As a third generation Manchester resident born and raised here, I love this town the way it is possibly with a few additional services. The current commissioners have done a great job in creating what we have. Now it is important to keep the facility in the best condition possible with the resources we have available. If additional resources are available possibly through grants, I will want to seek community involvement for any improvements of the existing facility.
Proper maintenance of the existing facility. Ensure park, boat ramp and restroom are in good and operating condition.
A clean well maintained facility.
Ensure that the port operates smoothly and with welcomed public input.
