As a volunteer police officer with the Liberty Lake Police Department for 12+ years, I am proud to have helped make Liberty Lake one of the top five safest cities in Washington State. As Mayor Pro-Tem, I have helped Liberty Lake Police Department hire three experienced new police officers. As a city, we will need to actively recruit more officers so that our police department can stay fully staffed. It is also important to be prepared for the future. Our current police chief is eligible for retirement soon, so we will need a Mayor who is well versed in the issues our police department deals with to keep our city safe. I believe I would be the better candidate to help select our next police chief when that time comes.
My priority is making sure our traffic plan evolves with our community, keeping traffic flow as safe and efficient as possible. We need a Mayor who listens to traffic experts when it comes to making traffic revisions, like the addition of traffic lights and roundabouts, to make these changes cost effective.
Traffic Priorities Include:
The current Mayor has not been fiscally responsible. I disagree with his frivolous approach to our city’s finances, and his lack of foresight and planning for city projects.
A few recent examples of his mistakes include:
My budgeting priorities include:
