Integrity, honesty, and professionalism are what I believe in, and strive to be at the highest level personally as well as with my entire professional team. If I make a mistake, I admit to it and move to a fair resolution.
I love this town and always will - I know almost anything you might need to know about our valley (and if I don't - I will find it out!)
I believe in sharing positive thoughts and staying away from negative environments, because that just brings us all down.
The list of my roles in this community is too large to talk about, but if you need to know how I am perceived in this community feel free to talk to your bankers, attorneys, and friends. I will stand by my record.
One of the things I am most proud of is my part in the building and operation of the Gesa Powerhouse Theatre. It has added so much to our community and the strength is shows for a town of 30,000 people. My goal is to turn it over to the community as a gift and the operation will be part of the Walla Walla community forever after I am gone.
I have lived in Walla Walla 55 years. I graduated from Walla Walla High School in 1966 where I played varsity football and track. Graduated from Central Washington University in 1970 with a BA in Economics. I worked on gas pipelines throughout high school and college. I am married with three children and three grandchildren.
I love being a part of this community. I enjoy Walla Walla Sweets baseball in the summer, it allows me to see people I do not see on a regular basis. I still enjoy a Little League game at the Pacific Fields where I coached for 11 years.
Most of all I enjoy driving throughout our community and getting a fresh view of the trees, parks, and views. I love Walla Walla.
