Current Job: Small Business Owner - Financial and Insurance Services
Top 3 Priorities if Elected:
CONTINUE TO OPERATE ON A LEAN BUDGET
I've served on the City Council for 4 years, with the past 2 as Mayor. As the city's revenue went down we engaged in the difficult process of reducing expenditures. I'm proud of the budget we're currently operating on. It's balanced, while allowing us to offer the basic and necessary services for our citizens. If elected I plan on continuing to monitor the budget in a way that sets up King City for success in the future as the economy improves. Specifically, I want to build up a reserve to put the city in a better fiscal position.

WORK WITH OTHER SOUTH COUNTY CITIES TO EXPLORE POTENTIAL PARTNERSHIPS
We have recently begun an endeavor with the 4 South County Cities to see if there are areas upon which we can collaborate. Collaboration could possibly mean cost savings. I am willing and interested in exploring possibilities that lead to savings while maintaining necessary safety and service levels.
