Sunrise Water Authority Zone 6

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: If the district has 100 or more voters, a candidate must be a registered voter in the district and a landowner in the district. ORS 264.410Salary: 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.

Town Where You Live Damascus
Your Experience/Qualificatons I currently serve as the Chair of the WES Advisory Committee. Previously served on City Council (Mayor, Council President) for the former City of Damascus. Former board member North Clackamas Chamber of Commerce.

I would take some of the knowledge I've gained having served on the WES AC and work on an educational/marketing campaign to both inform and engage our community about the importance of water conservation. As one of our most basics needs, access to water is often taken for granted. Folks don't think about it when they turn on the tap, they just expect the water to come on. What goes on behind the scenes to make sure that happens is overlooked.
Looking ahead and making sure our fundamental infrastructure is not only in place, but maintained at a level that ensures clean water for decades to come. Capital investments in upgrading, adding, and maintaining water supply lines without spikes in rates is imperative. Forecasting based on both past history and current trends will improve our ability to plan for future water use.
I have served on the Sunrise Water Budget Committee for the past several years. This board has shown a great understanding of what is needed at the current level of service and what is needed in the future. While I don't always agree with some of the policy decisions regarding restricting reservoir locations, I feel my ability to speak for our citizens would be a welcome addition to the board. Having served as Mayor of Damascus, it's important to listen thoughtfully and weigh the many opinions our constituents have and make the best informed decisions possible.
