I am honored to be your Snohomish County Executive and ask for your vote.
I have served this nation and our community for 45 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 38 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.
I’m proud our jobless rate is among the lowest in the state. I remain committed to pursuing opportunities for a diverse economy that accentuate our strengths while exploring new economic development options to create family-wage jobs.
I established a joint task force in the aftermath of the tragic Oso slide that led to legislation to help make people safer in Snohomish County, I am working to preserve the 38-acre Hooven Bog to support critical waterways and remain committed to the veterans and seniors in our community.
