Candidate’s submitted biography (unedited):

Born in Whatcom County, I spent my summers picking berries and bucking hay bales, then graduated from Western Washington University. I feel fortunate to raise my family in this wonderful community and want others to have the same opportunity.

I’m a husband and father, youth coach and a 31-year business owner. I’m a former Whatcom County Council member and currently president of the Whatcom Business Alliance.

I’ve been actively involved in community service my entire life. A particular passion is building up young people and preparing them for a productive future. I was a leadership award recipient for Junior Achievement and involved in launching the Youth Engagement Initiative and Youth Employment Services.

Other leadership positions on boards including president, WWU Alumni Association; executive board, United Way of Whatcom County; and chairman, Northwest Private Industry Council.

Our economy is a key driver of our quality of life and sustainable environment. Without a strong and prosperous economy, families, schools, organizations that support our most vulnerable neighbors, and our environment are at risk. To build a prosperous future and maintain our quality of life will require principled, proven leadership and experience that I offer.

As your County Executive, I will bring a new and refreshing perspective to county government.  I will fight for job creation; support only those regulations that work with, not against, our farmers, employers and families; and focus spending on programs with clear objectives.
