It is an honor that I was chosen to be your voice on the Board of Fire Commissioners of Graham Fire and Rescue. I’ve been a resident in the Graham/Eatonville area for 20+ years. I’ve been happily married to my wife, Mary, for the past 33 years and we have 2 kids, ages 26 and 30. I have a wonderful daughter-in-law and I will soon be a proud Grandpa!
I have spent the last 34 years as a professional firefighter for Renton Regional Fire Authority where I worked up through the ranks and currently hold the rank of Battalion Chief. I enjoy bike riding, golfing, boating with my family and friends and giving back to the community.
I spent 14 years on the Eatonville School Board, working with my constituents to make our local school system better, and I hope to do the same with our already outstanding Fire District. I will be retiring in 2021 and hope to bring my experiences on governing boards, along with my 34 years in the fire service to assist Graham Fire and Rescue in moving forward to improve services for our community. I am looking forward to the next six years where we can establish a stable funding model, increase and maintain safe staffing levels and continuing to improve services and maintain relevancy in the ever changing Fire Service.
