Twelve years of service on the Park Board, active park user, demonstrated commitment to fiscal responsibility, asset and ecosystem management, and welcoming parks.
1) Fiscal Responsibility. This is the foundation for continuing the mission. 2) Asset Management. This assures an appealing and safe user experience and avoids deferring maintenance that can become a financial timebomb. 3) Community Engagement.
