My Top 3 Priorities

  • Actively seek community input in order to find practical solutions to complex problems
  • Prioritize economically feasible environmental solutions and prepare for the impacts of climate change

In his position he has extensive experience working with communities throughout the state to craft practical solutions to complex problems. He looks forward to applying those same skills to the challenges facing the North Tahoe PUD.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe that the NTPUD needs to prioritize environmentally conscious, community-supported, fiscally sound decisions that protect our publicly owned assets.  We need to ensure that our infrastructure is world class because the effect of any environmental spill is magnified in this pristine Lake Tahoe basin.  The PUD needs to be looking at every economically feasible opportunity available to reduce our impact on the environment, invest in solar and other alternative energy sources, and reduce the effects of climate change.

We need to make the same smart choices to improve our recreational opportunities, invest in the event center so that the public maintains control over this important asset, and ensure that locals and visitors alike can take advantage of all that the district has to offer. 

As a board member I will actively seek community input and focus on long-term investments instead of short-sighted quick fixes. Our community assets belong to the people, and I will protect them.
