Online Primary Voters' Pamphlet, August 6, 2013
Fire Protection District No. 13 (Griffin) - Fire Commissioner, Position No. 3
 
 

Fire Protection Districts & Regional Fire Authorities (RFA) - Fire protection districts and RFA’s are formed to provide fire prevention services, fire suppression, emergency medical services, and the protection of life and property in the county. Administrative authority for the districts results from decisions made by a board of elected fire commissioners. The board of fire commissioners has the authority to hire and appoint employees as well as administer all aspects of the district. The board is required to hold regular monthly meetings. Fire protection districts levy regular property taxes to provide services to the public. Additionally, with voter approval, the board may issue bonds and make excess levies for specific purposes. The voters elect commissioners to staggered six-year terms. The nonpartisan commissioners receive no regular salary, but may choose to receive nominal compensation for attending meetings.

All positions are nonpartisan.

 
  Only voters residing within the Griffin Fire District will vote on this position.
Statements are written by the candidates, who are solely responsible for the contents therein.

In January 2013, I was appointed as your newest Fire Commissioner by the Griffin Fire District-13 Fire Commission. My family and I have lived in the Griffin community for the past 13 years.

I am currently employed by the largest law enforcement agency in Thurston County. Over my 28 years as a law enforcement officer I have worked my way through the ranks to my current position as an executive manager. I have gained a tremendous amount of budget knowledge and experience by managing multi-million dollar budgets; which is a key to the fire commissioner’s position.

We are fortunate to have an independent, financially stable, and well respected fire department in our community. As your fire commissioner I promise to be fiscally responsible with your money and build upon the successes of your fire department. It would be a privilege to have your vote.

 
 
Ballots will begin arriving October 17, 2013. If you have not received your ballot by October 24,
