My priority has always been to put the public’s interests before mine or political agendas. I find common ground and practical solutions to challenges because I’m accessible to citizens, study hard, and consider how decisions will impact Ferndale ten, twenty, forty years into the future. I want my seven children and future grandchildren to say, “Dad, you and the city made some important, difficult, but good decisions back in your day, and we’re enjoying the benefits of a great city today.”
I am a conservative, but a practical one. We have to govern and serve, but if our
values don’t advance the public’s interest they are rubbish. Government is called to do a limited number of things, but must do them well. The rest is up to us—the
I believe in open and accountable government and have led the city in “going the extra mile” to ensure the public is well informed.
Ferndale is called the “City of Opportunity.” That means our government needs to “get out of the way” as much as possible to allow citizens, families, businesses and service groups to succeed.
I don’t have a radical new direction for Ferndale. Law enforcement and public safety come first. I won’t compromise on a clean and healthy environment. Our infrastructure (streets, water, sewer, stormwater) is near the top. Then, out of our fiscal health and prosperity, we discuss, study and pursue other priorities and ideas that benefit all of Ferndale.
Finally, I appreciate the friends, officials, and political leaders who encouraged me to run for Whatcom County Council this year. I thought hard about it, but Ferndale is home to me and my family and is where I wish to serve now. I am also still serving as the pastor of Ferndale Alliance Church. The job of council member is part-time (and pays about $7,000/year) and I will continue serving Ferndale in my role as our church’s pastor.
