I am honored to be your Snohomish County Executive and ask for your vote.
I have served this nation and our community for over 44 years - in the United States Coast Guard, local government, as a career Washington State Patrol Trooper and as your Snohomish County Sheriff. I have dedicated my life to making our country and neighborhoods safe.
As a 37 year resident of Snohomish County I understand the challenges we face. As your Executive I have focused my efforts on building a bright future for this county; investing in safe schools for our children, a reliable transportation infrastructure that will support growth and creating the best economic environment to help produce jobs.
In addition to these critical investments I implemented an intern program bringing college students into our workplace, launched Safe Kids Improved Pathways creating safe and accessible routes to get our kids to and from school, initiated an energy and sustainability program, increased efforts to protect our environment and delivered a balanced budget without new taxes to our County Council.
I am committed to improving veterans' services and supporting the more than 100,000 seniors living in our county.
