Improving Roads and Sidewalks

Improving our streets and sidewalks is a priority. Centralia has more than 100 miles of streets, alleys, paths, and shoulders. Improving and maintaining our streets and sidewalks is about safety, quality of life, and economic development. If re-elected, I will continue to advocate larger arterial projects, as well as smaller street, alley, and sidewalk projects.

Creating Economic Opportunities

Our community needs to continue working to open up new housing opportunities, create new family wage jobs, and grow in smart and innovative ways. We can do that through infrastructure improvements, annexation, design guide modifications, and efficient permitting processes. If re-elected I will continue to work on a balanced approach throughout our city and with diverse opportunities like manufacturing, tourism, art and music, sporting and community events, entertainment, and destination shopping.

Delivering Efficient and Effective Government

Government is “for the people” and “by the people”. Elected officials are financial stewards of public funds and I believe in openness, transparency, and effective and efficient service.  If re-elected, I will continue to vote against unnecessary and burdensome tax increases, advocate a balanced budget that preserves City reserves, and promote fiscally responsible policies.

Flooding

Flooding is the single most important issues negatively impacting job growth, economic development, and commerce in our region. I strongly support a long-term vision. Without a comprehensive solution, our region will be held back from reaching its full potential. If re-elected, I will make sure the City continues to adopt responsible land use management practices and advances local projects that reduce flooding in our community, like the Centralia China Creek project and Chehalis Airport Levee project.
