WE MUST DO MORE
Our Southern Resident Killer Whales desperately need more salmon to eat and the King Conservation District is critical to restoring salmon habitat. We must do even more to confront climate change, dwindling salmon populations, and polluted rivers and streams.
Ballots for KCD elections are by request only with most voters completely unaware of the process. I will seek a legislative solution to place future elections on the regular ballot.
KCD is funded by a flat fee per property regardless of size or value, placing too much of the burden on working families. I support increased KCD funding and will seek legislation for a less regressive tax base.
KCD is facing a budgetary shortfall – increased financial oversight and greater transparency are needed to ensure taxpayer dollars are spent wisely.
Throughout my career, I have worked on rural development, environmental preservation, and public policy. As a member of the board of supervisors, I will invest my experience and passion to help guide KCD into the future.
