Clackamas County Fire District Position 2

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. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: Candidate must be a registered voter or an landowner in the district. If the district has a supporting ordinance, employees of the district are not eligible. ORS 478.050Salary: A member of the governing body of a district may receive an amount not to exceed $50 for each day or portion thereof as compensation for services performed as a member of the governing body. Such compensation shall not be deemed lucrative. The governing body may provide for reimbursement of a member for actual and reasonable traveling and other expenses necessarily incurred by a member in performing official duties. [1971 c.403 §2; 1983 c.327 §2; 1983 c.740 §53a; 1989 c.517 §1; 1995 c.79 §74] In event of Vacancy: Except as otherwise provided by law, a vacancy in an elected office in the membership of the governing body of a district shall be filled by appointment by a majority of the remaining members of the governing body.

Your Experience/Qualificatons My wife and I have been business owners for the past four years. Before this, I worked for Safeway for 33 years in many compacities. I was a volunteer firefighter/first responder for 15 years with several departments throughout Oregon. The last being Molalla Fire where I was a lieutenant. I'm excited to bring a fresh perspective with my corporate business experience, owning a business and years of being a volunteer firefighter to the fire board.

I will do my best, to always have time to answer questions from my community. One of the best experiences I had has a volunteer was attending the board meetings. I was able to hear the passion and support that our board had for the firefighter and administration. We were aloud to ask questions to the board members directly. The answers weren't always what we wanted to hear, but we appreciated the honesty.

I want to make sure that everyone in our community has an open invitation to attend the monthly board meetings. This will be one of the best ways to communicate with our communities, be involved with decision making, staying informed and increasing fire awareness.
My years of working for a corporate company, now owning my own business and most importantly being an involved volunteer in the fire service for 15+ years.
One of the great memories that I have growing up, was the firefighters come to our school to teach us fire safety. To this day I still remember "stop, drop and roll", "knowing your families evacuation plan", and "your family's meeting place, if you had to evacuate". Teaching fire safety starts with our children.

If this last year has taught us anything, it is to be ready to evacuate at a moment notice. With wildland fire season right around the corner, we all need to make sure that we have a large defensible space around our homes, gutters cleaned out, and move your firewood away from structures.

Your Experience/Qualificatons I have been involved with Industrial Construction Management for over 25 years. I have also been very involved with local and regional political activities for over 10 years, including serving on boards, budget committees, and Citizen Involvement Committees.

I advocate a proactive communications strategy and will encourage staff and my fellow board members to attend community meetings, host local events at fire stations, and interact with the public we serve at every opportunity. I will strongly support the efforts of the CFD leadership to be involved in community groups and events.
I have been involved with CFD#1 since 2011. I managed the successful campaign to merge Boring FD with CFD#1 resulting in a higher, more efficient, and responsive level of Emergency Services while not raising taxes on the citizens.

Since then I have attended the vast majority of CFD#1 board meetings to maintain understanding of the issues and challenges facing the organization. I do not believe there is another member of the public that has attended as many CFD meetings as I have. I bring this knowledge to the first meeting I attend if elected and will be ready to participate fully on Day 1.

I also have participated in CFD events such as Operation Santa, and my car club partnered with CFD in 2019 to host a Classic Car Show at the CFD Training Center to raise money for the Clackamas Emergency Services Foundation. I was proud to be presented one of the ceremonial Groundbreaking Shovels for my efforts in siting and advocating for the new Fire Station 19 in the Damascus community.
I have supported and encouraged the Community Paramedic program with the goal of reducing repetitive calls for service by individuals needing alternate resource access to serve their actual needs and avoid having to use an engine crew better suited to larger calls for service. I will encourage the staff and firefighters to attend school events, community meetings, and educate citizens.

Social media is an important tool for keeping people informed and involved. I would leverage my existing presence on Facebook and Instagram to promote the Fire District and Fire District activities.
I have been in emergency services for over 20 years, first as a volunteer firefighter, later as a paid firefighter and now as a paramedic. I understand the needs of emergency services in urban, suburban and rural settings and will work to ensure those needs are met. In addition, I’m a very analytical person who is unafraid to ask tough questions of those in positions of responsibility. Direct, unambiguous communication with staff and other directors is the only way to get the public’s work accomplished in an efficient, cost-effective manner.
I would support increased funding for prevention personnel, including fire marshal services, public education services and fire mitigation services. We saw last year that nobody in our area is immune to the risk of wildfire, and the community needs guidance to help them help firefighters with things like defensible space and fuel mitigation.
Las redes sociales son una herramienta importante para mantener a las personas informadas y participativas. Yo aprovecharé mi presencia actual en Facebook e Instagram para promover el Distrito de Bomberos y sus actividades.
He participado en servicios de emergencia por más de 20 años, primero como bombero voluntario, después como bombero profesional y ahora como paramédico. Comprendo las necesidades de los Servicios de Emergencia en áreas urbanas, suburbanas y rurales y trabajaré para asegurarme que esas necesidades sean cubiertas. Además, soy una persona altamente analítica, que no tiene miedo de realizar las preguntas difíciles hacia las personas en cargos de responsabilidad. La comunicación directa, sin ambigüedades, con los miembros del equipo y directivos, es la única manera de llevar a cabo el trabajo público de una manera eficiente.
Apoyaré el aumento de presupuesto para personal de prevención, incluyendo servicios de bomberos, servicios de educación pública y servicios de mitigación de fuegos. El año pasado pudimos observar que nadie en nuestra área es inmune al riesgo de incendios y que la comunidad necesita conocimientos para poder apoyar a los servicios de bomberos, con cosas como espacio defendible y mitigación de combustibles.
