Experienced Leadership for Beaverton!

This is an important election for Beaverton and I hope to earn your support on May 15th. We need leaders who have developed a broad range of civic experience.  We need leaders who are focused on our needs, on our priorities, and are willing to work with residents, businesses, and partners to improve our community and attract business and investment into our city.  I hope that when you review some of my experience below, you will see a person passionate about public involvement and making sure your voice is heard in planning for our City’s future.

As a husband, a father, a small business owner, I care about the City I call home.  I have earned my varied experience by working hard as a volunteer for our City.  Please take a moment to learn a bit more about me.  I look forward to hearing from you about your ideas for Beaverton.
