Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • To help direct & manage the NTPUD in the most cost effective and efficient manner, and to get the most value for every tax dollar spent.
  • To make our recreational amenities first class, well maintained, and sustainable for future generations.
  • To continue with a "Pay as You Go" policy. We cannot borrow our way to prosperity, and I will not strap my kids and the kids of this community, with debt.

One of the most important issues the North Tahoe Public Utility District faces?


The NTPUD Board, directed staff, to conduct a recreation survey, in 2017.  65% of rate payers respoded, "KEEP THE STATUS QUO" ... for funding.  THIS REPORT WAS QUITE TELLING!

Therefore, as a district, we need to continue to find creative ways to aid in the funding of recreation, by establishing private/public partnerships.  For example, the Ropes Course in the North Tahoe Regional Park provided $250,000.00 in additional funding, in its 1st year.

I am fully in favor of private/public partnerships provided that they do not compete with local businesses.  I am very mindful of this.

The Event Center, in Kings Beach, is a community asset.  We will continue to seek community input, while working on a long term solution to the sustinibility & renovation of this incredible community asset.

This is our #1 challege

Accomplishments of the North Tahoe Public Utility District under my tenure.


I am extremely proud of the accomplishments and the employees of the NTPUD during my tenure.  Let me give you a few facts:

  • We have not raised utility rates since 2006.
  • We have spent $23.6 in capitol improvements, since 2010, without raising rates
  • We have found creative ways to fund recreation, through Private/Public Partnerships.  For example, the Ropes Course in the North Tahoe Regional Park brought $250,000.00, in revenue, in its 1st year of operation
  • We were the 1st utility district, in California, to build a State of the Art municipal UV water treatment plant, which brought us into full compliance with the Safe  Water Drinking Act.
  • Our Finacial Accounting has been set up for three separate enterprise zones:  Sewer ... Water ... & Recreation ... to provide COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY so that YOU know how YOUR tax dollars are being spent.
  • We continue to prioritize projects, for the future, based on:  Engineering Science, Economic Justification, & Public Health & Safety.
  • The NTPUD os one of the few Special Districts, in the State of California, that is practically debt free.
  • Through sound fiscal management, our District has $10.8 million dollars in reserves.  This has been accomplished through a "Pay as You Go" policy.  I refuse to strap the next generation with debt!
