A candidate for State Representative Pos. 2, Legislative District 11 in the 2010 Washington General Election
Elected Experience: I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the Monterey Precinct as PCO
Other Professional Experience: Currently I am a Para Educator/classroom assistant working primarily with special needs and at risk youth. I also work with Records storage/office management
Education: South Seattle Community College and the University of Washington
Community Service: For thirty years of Boy Scout leadership I have immersed myself in the philanthropic endeavor of guiding youth into productive adulthood. I find similar reward professionally with the Highline School District (Teamsters Local 763). And, as a restorer of modest homes, my labors increase the stock of affordable housing in our community
Statement: I have a passion for passing the torch of freedom to future generations, to this end I have dedicated much of my adult life to the importance of teaching Math, History, Sciences and valuable Communication skills. We are taxed enough already! I will take the value of thrift to Olympia and vow to not spend more money than we have. We need to manage our finances wisely as we deal with an aging transportation infrastructure and we need to stay away from projects where we argue about who will pay for cost overuns.
