Port Orford Port 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.

Town Where You Live Port Orford
Your Experience/Qualificatons I've owned and operated two successful businesses involving financial services and construction. I've served on several non profit boards and have been involved in several major projects raising over 4 million dollars as part of those. Myself and 4 others founded a youth soccer organization in 1999 that today is still thriving and has over 850 kids participating. I have a passion for being involved and serving in my community with integrity and always trying to do the right thing.
I believe the port of Port Orford is the town’s greatest under utilized asset. It is my intention to continue promoting the seafood hub, recreational fishing, purchasing fresh fish direct from boats, new retail opportunities and restaurants. Being able to purchase fresh seafood at reasonable prices for the citizens of Port Orford is a priority for me. We need to expand business opportunities at the port that help increase revenues, give our citizens more opportunities to shop and dine. The redevelopment will create new jobs and enhance the overall economy of Port Orford.
I am going to encourage as many people as possible to attend commission meetings. The public has an opportunity at each meeting to voice questions and comments to the port commissioners and I will encourage everyone and anyone interested in port activities to attend these meetings. I've attended virtually all meetings over the last 14 months and have found the meetings to be both informative and interesting. In addition I will maintain a public presence and will encourage all residents to contact me through email or telephone to voice their opinions.
Seeing the port become a viable opportunity for residents to purchase seafood and modernizing the port through redevelopment to make it attractive and a destination point for travelers. I want to see more opportunities for recreational sportfishing and other water born activities. It is imperative we continue to support our commercial fishing fleet in as many ways as possible. The fleet and the tenants of the port are the ports number one assets producing the revenue to keep the open, running and active. We need to develop programs that will attract new tenants and support our existing tenants.
