Clackamas County Fire District Position 4

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.

Although the Fire Board meetings are open to the public, and the meeting minutes are made public, I would advocate for two additional steps. First, I would like to see public comment period being added into the Fire Board agendas, allowing the free and open expression of thoughts/concerns/kudos for the Fire service in Clackamas. Second, I would make myself available to engage the community and solicit input. Community events, visits to fire stations, and connections with business owners would be some examples of ways to solicit input from the public.
I've spent my career in the delivery of health care, often focusing on ensuring human services to vulnerable populations. Throughout my career, I'm known to be a Strategy Accelerator, Systems Thinker, and Results Driven. Presently, at Providence, I’m responsible for a $500M budget and 230 pharmacy professionals in over 20 locations providing lifesaving pharmacy services to 750,000 patients in 7 states. Innovation and determination amidst competing priorities is my strong suit! I have driven success that provided health, housing and food/safety resources to vulnerable populations. Exemplary Fire Service is not achieved in isolation but with a diverse set of stakeholders. I'm also interested in pursuing higher standards of safety for our fire services professionals, including “4 Person Staffing (NFPA 1710)”. To achieve this goal, I will advocate for smart budgets to deliver this basic safety measure to protect our firefighters while providing nationally known fire service excellence.
Clackamas Fire is well received in the community, and especially at in-person events, such as parades, National Night Out, and school visits. These are ways that historically have been effective to share community fire safety programs. Given the pandemic, I would challenge Clackamas Fire to think of ways it can virtually connect with the school age population to build a foundation of fire safety habits that would be drawn upon as they reach adulthood. Very specifically, I'd like to see some virtual classroom teaching opportunities geared to K-5 that can be streamed into classrooms or home school locations and integrated into their curriculum. That way, fire safety programs will reach our students at in-person events when possible, but also is extended to a broader population virtually when in-person events are not possible.
