Illinois Valley Rural Fire Protection District Position 3

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability.

I will support the District's existing social media outlets and amplify through my public pages. Also, I will encourage delivery of timely board and district information to the local newspaper. If possible, I will seek other media opportunities, specifically radio, to help further the district's public information goals.
I'm a 25-year resident of Illinois Valley. In that time I've volunteered for our community and served on a number of local boards and nonprofits supporting parks, schools and alumni, museums and service organizations. I have recent legislative experience and I currently serve Josephine County's Local Public Safety Coordinating Council as Coordinator.
Fire and the threat of fire are top-of-mind for Southern Oregon residents. I would give careful consideration to any approach brought before the IVFD Board.
