Cloverdale Rural Fire Protection District Position 5

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: Candidate must be a registered voter or an landowner in the district. If the district has a supporting ordinance, employees of the district are not eligible. ORS 478.050Salary: A member of the governing body of a district may receive an amount not to exceed $50 for each day or portion thereof as compensation for services performed as a member of the governing body.

The Cloverdale Fire District has a website that we use to communicate, but we also frequently use our local newspaper to communicate regarding important issues. Social media use is increasing within the District, and we look forward to improving the connection to the community.
I have 30 years of experience in the fire service, both as a volunteer and as paid staff. I have been a member of the Board for the past 8 years, and I have a bachelor's degree in Public Management.
That's a difficult question for a small, rural community with limited resources. Fortunately, strong community partnerships throughout Deschutes, Jefferson, and Crook Counties help in creating great community outreach programs, particularly through the Central Oregon Fire Prevention Cooperative.

Your Experience/Qualificatons I have been a Cloverdale Volunteer Since 2009. I have been a Volunteer Fireman for over 45 years.

I believe letting the public know of the Districts plans and concerns is important for public input. I am in favor of a community reader board to be installed in-front of the station.
I am a positive outlook kind of person. Decisions that are made that may affect the long term wellbeing of the entire community should be scrutinized for both short term and long term effects.
I am a big supporter of education. There are many great programs out there to help our citizens improve their fire safety. We need to inform our public as to how to avail themselves to that information.
