It is my belief that all tax dollars collected should be well spent with appropriate citizen oversight. The Port of Skagit is a junior taxing district and as a Commissioner it is my responsibility to assure all tax dollars collected and port revenues generated are used for the public good in maximizing economic development and job creation in Skagit County. That was the primary reason I ran for office.
