My Top 3 Priorities

Profession:Professional Engineer
Director, Occupational Safety, Health and Environmental Office, U. S. Navy, Mare Island Naval Shipyard (1991–1996)
Director, Lake Almanor Country Club — Elected position (1984–1988)


Cal-Poly, San Luis Obispo B.S., Architectural Engineering (1964)

Community Activities

Political Beliefs

Position Papers

Services Provided


Retain services that the community needs and wants.

The current Board has approved the elimination of two lines of service and studying, for elimination, a third line of service.   The public discussions by the Board had little or no review of the fiscal data associated with these lines of service.  The public was only given a number representing the projected loss.  The public deserves more discussion of the under lying costs and what might be done to reduce the operating costs.
