Aurora Rural Fire Protection 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.

Use social media to get the word out to the community. Invite the community to the monthly Board Meetings. Remind the community they can read the minutes of Board Meetings online. District activities are always posted on the Aurora Fire District's website.
I was appointed by Governors Goldschmidt and Roberts to two terms on the Oregon Board of Radiologic Technology. I have been a manager of a Radiation Oncology Department. I know how to participate in a group setting such as the AFD Board. As a board member you have to work as a group for the good of the community.

I am dedicated to the activities I sign up for. I will serve to the best of my ability if elected. Prior to Covid-19, I had attended every Board Meeting for the past several years. Since Covid put a halt to in-person meetings, I have had to use the Zoom Call-in option. It is important to me to support the firefighters and the district.
Chief Williams and the firefighters have various program-activities for the community. Social Media is a main way to notify the community of the program-activities to get them involved.
Fui nombrado por los gobernadores Goldschmidt y Roberts para dos mandatos en la Junta de Tecnología Radiológica de Oregón. He sido gerente de un Departamento de Oncología Radioterápica. Sé cómo participar en un entorno de grupo como la Junta de AFD. Como miembro de la junta tienes que trabajar como grupo por el bien de la comunidad.

Me dedico a las actividades a las que me inscribo. Serviré lo mejor que pueda si es elegido. Antes de Covid-19, había asistido a todas las reuniones de la Junta durante los últimos años. Desde que Covid puso fin a las reuniones en persona, he tenido que usar la opción zoom call-in. Es importante para mí apoyar a los bomberos y al distrito.
El Distrito de Bomberos de Aurora cuenta con unos 25 bomberos voluntarios. Los voluntarios son un segmento integral de la AFD. El jefe Williams lo sabe y trabaja duro para reclutar nuevas personas para unirse al programa de voluntariado con AFD. Él está haciendo un buen trabajo y no veo una manera de que pueda mejorar sus esfuerzos. Prioridades con un presupuesto limitado... Es importante que los bomberos cuenten con el equipo necesario para hacer su trabajo. La comunicación abierta con los bomberos informará a los miembros de la Junta cuáles son sus antecedentes y necesidades actuales.
El jefe Williams y los bomberos tienen varias actividades del programa para la comunidad. Las redes sociales son una forma principal de notificar a la comunidad de las actividades del programa para involucrarlos.
