Experience (300 characters max) Retired from the City of South Bends City Supervisor, Building Official. Pacific County Building Inspector. Owned Willapa Bay Construction. City of South Bend City Council 2000 to 2010.
We have a very real problems with our city's water supply. We are having to increase our water plant size to accommodate future expansion. That's not to say that is the only problem we have antique water lines underground still plague us with leaks of enormous regularity.
Our city hasn't had the tremendous uptick in homelessness that larger city's have experienced. At this point in time and until we can afford to build something permanent we have to make sure these people are protected as any citizen should be.
Senior citizens, as I am, are confronted with fixed incomes, and rising costs. As a city councilor I would hope to be able keep city costs down so they and I can enjoy what we have worked so hard for.
When an elected official is sworn in they all swear to uphold the laws and constitution of the United States. If I feel a law is bad or discriminates against some of our citizens I will try and change it from within.
Having such a small city we have had problems in the past of unfunded mandates from the State and the Federal Gov't, this needs to stop. We have a small population and are completely ignored by the State Gov't. Olympia happens to be on the I5 corridor and that's where all the money goes, while small towns across the state are consistently pushed aside.
Our infrastructure: roads, underground waterlines need to be replaced with new, we loose each month around 30% of our water supply in the underground water piping which is very, very old.
We have typical small town woes, with little money to fix things. I hope to help the mayor and city council prioritize our problems and seek help to fix these. logo
