Why should I be your mayor? I am grounded here. I grew up here attending Steilacoom Schools and have lived in DuPont 19 years. My children and grandchildren live in DuPont. I gained leadership experience through various occupations (private sector, state and federal government). I am a combat veteran and served ten years as a Navy SEAL.
As an ethics professor, I taught my students that the ends do not justify the means. In city government, the citizens do not work for the mayor, but rather the mayor is a servant of the citizens. DuPont should be a great small town with a focus on safety, children, and the gifts of nature and history. To ensure this happens, I need your help. As mayor, I will listen and present pro and con options. I will not belittle you or your opinion. I will lead in a way that makes you proud.
I am aware that DuPont citizens (including myself) have spent considerable time and money to keep their own city government from circumventing the city code and comprehensive plan. Working with you, I intend to create a new spirit of partnership. I would be honored to have your vote.
