A little about me, experience and qualifications:

I'm a 35 year resident of Ketchikan. I'm married and have one child and 2-1/2 grandchildren. I'm a retired fire chief with the Ketchikan Gateway Borough. During my time as the fire chief, I secure funding of grants for the Fire Station #4 located at Mt. Point. In addition, I was the project manager for that project in which there were no change orders. I have presented numerous resolutions, ordinances and reports to the assembly over that period of time. I'm very knowledgeable of the Borough code and ordinances and where to find the laws as they relate to the Ketchikan area. In some cases, I don't always know the answer to an issue but I always know where to find it. One of my talents are noticing slight details in something and thinking outside of the box. My skills include listening, construction and detecting deception.

What I'd like to accomplish and issues of concern:

Well, money seems to be an issue of the residents in addition to being a concern. Me too. I think there's money to be had in the formation of a safety program for each Borough department to become S.H.A.R.P. recognized by OSHA. Other employers in the country have seen a reduction in Worker's compensation premiums with this classification of employees. I would like to be more proactive in regards to safety as it has been shown to increase worker productivity, creating less lost time incidents, and reducing taxpayer's costs.

It is important to look at ways to improve economic development and to bring more industry and work to Ketchikan. Economic development is important for this town to keep growing.

But my biggest concern is that someone will be elected to the assembly that won't represent the residents of Ketchikan well. The first item on my mission as a member of the Assembly is to "Represent 1/7 of the residents in Ketchikan (since there are 7 assembly members).
