Last April, I accepted the appointment to the Paradise Irrigation District Board of Directors as Director of Division 5.  I took this position because, as a citizen of Paradise, I am concerned about the safety and affordability of our water and believed that my many years of commercial water treatment experience would be an asset to the Board.


I understand the complexities of protecting our water system and providing water to the community and am very familiar with State and Federal legislation affecting the operation of our treatment plant and water distribution system. After over 40 years in business, I understand how to sustain an organization and provide a product to customers in a fair and equitable manner.  I also understand the importance of listening to the citizens of our community and responding to their concerns.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Water is a precious commodity that we sometimes take for granted until it is in short supply. I look forward to working with the District to ensure that our resources are used responsibly and that our water remains clean, safe and affordable. Vote for me in November and allow me to continue the work I’ve begun to protect one of our most valuable assets.
