It has been an honor to serve you as your County Commissioner. I have worked to protect you and your family in partnership with Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich and we are committed to continuing to work on efforts to improve the community’s safety.

This commitment to your safety extends to leading a regional effort to improve our criminal justice system to ensure that individuals that want to harm you are incarcerated and those that are in need of assistance, either social or medical are directed to the appropriate services. This will insure that the appropriate justice is administered while at the same time driving down the cost of incarceration.
I have worked to bring new and better jobs to the community through direct recruitment efforts, the development of business-friendly policies, and the strategic investment in infrastructure expansion that will attract new investments. Spokane County is enjoying a historic economic expansion period with existing businesses creating new jobs and new businesses bringing thousands of jobs to our community.
While experiencing this economic expansion we continue to work to protect and enhance our quality of life. We have instituted environmental programs to improve the quality of our air and water. We have worked to protect our natural environment with additions to our Conservation Futures program. We have made significant improvements to our parks, aquatics facilities, schools, and event facilities. We also continue to maintain the largest road system in the state with over 2500 miles.
We have managed to provide all of these services to the community while at the same time maintaining one of the lowest tax rates per capita compared to similarly sized counties in the state. This means that we are getting greater value for your tax dollars and we are continuing our efforts to improve efficiencies and effectiveness of county services.
I look forward to continuing the journey to success with you. To continue this journey I am asking for your vote this November and let’s continue to make Spokane better together.
