As your County Commissioner for District 3, I have been privileged to be part of a great commissioner team that has focused on collaboration and transparency to solve tough problems. Together, we have been dedicated to getting results for the people of Clallam County.
Our county is facing a number of critical issues that must be addressed in the next few years.

These issues will impact our quality of life if practical solutions are not implemented soon. Because of this, open and honest communication is essential to working on solutions together that will stand the test of time. I am proud to have worked hard for you and hope to continue.
