Why Bryan

I come from a family engaged with  community service. I spent 40 years as a science educator and now have the opportunity to give back to the place I call home.

If elected, I will:

  • Keep my constituents respectfully informed of County activities and opportunities
  • Continue to improve planned development, road maintenance and other public services
  • Create county-wide (potentially multi-county), long-term water use and flood management plans
  • Continue forest health treatment to reduce potential catastrophic fire  risk.
  • Increase support of our educational system to maintain high-quality teachers, counselors, and staff who serve our children and future
  • Fund  the criminal justice system to become more efficient and effective with less backlog.
  • Attend to County fiscal management and efficient use of tax-payer funds
