Your voice at the Port
I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for 48 years. I live here because of the opportunity for the quality and pace of life. I envision others enjoying that same quality of life and a thriving economy for generations to come.
The Port of St. Helens owns more than 2,800 acres, including access to the Columbia River. Port properties and the river belong to all of us and to future generations. Port Commissioners' decisions do matter.
The Lower Columbia River is at a crossroads. The river could become a heavy industrial magnet or a clean industrial magnet with a solid future. We need decision makers who will build a legacy of a healthy river that includes easy access for fishing and recreation. Good leadership is required for the challenges of the 21st century. Through public participation and inspired leadership Columbia County will retain its uniqueness and quality of life.
I will work to make decisions on your behalf with these principles in mind.
I am a retired small business owner working 18 years with my husband as co-owner of a fisheries research consulting company and 2 years as a sole proprietor of manufacturing and marketing of cloth bags. I have been a county planning commissioner for 9 years and participate in our community in other volunteer positions.
