My wife and I raised our four children in Yelm over the past 19 years and we’re proud of our home town. Yelm has grown because good people want to live in a good place, and I’m determined to keep it that way for our families, and for those to come.

My qualifications to serve you on the Council come from my life-experience: I served 4½-years in the Marine Corps, then worked 34-years as a Firefighter/Paramedic, retiring out of Tumwater 2-years ago. Currently finishing my first 4-year term on the Yelm City Council, I have also served on the City’s Planning Commission, volunteered for the Nisqually Land Trust (current Board President), and worked on many Lion’s Club projects and community events. I also volunteer with the high school sports medicine program and currently serve as committee chair for Yelm School’s CTE programs.

I enjoy working for my community and being a voice for others. My work on the Council has proven educational and rewarding and I feel that I have represented the citizens of Yelm well.

Thank you for the opportunity to continue to help keep Yelm the “Pride of the Prairie. “

Ballots available beginning October 14, 2015.
