I decided to run again for the position of OIPRD board to provide continuity and forward momentum concerning the progress that OIPRD has accomplished through the levy providing critical repairs and maintenance to Buck Park. The Park and Rec district keeps improving and has a fantastic team of employees serving at the helm. I want to be involved to help see the vision through to fruition and to move forward to grow community involvement even further.
