"It is a pleasure to serve the constituents of the Port District and the residents of Klickitat County. After nearly two decades in the private sector, it is rewarding to have the opportunity to give something back. My objective is to assist the Port Commission in creating a strong, sustainable, and diverse local economy, to carefully manage the assets of the Port so that it remains an enduring economic benefit to its constituents, and to prudently invest the limited resources of the Port in projects that clearly move it toward these goals. Ultimately, I hope my tenure with the Port will be seen as a period of financial stability, consistent growth, wise investment, and careful diversification that will serve as the foundation for the continued growth and prosperity of Klickitat County in the decades to come."
