My Priorities as Your City Councilor Strong Leadership...Planning for the Future

I am dedicated to the continued improvement of transparency and citizen involvement in public matters for the City of Philomath. The importance of safe spaces and open-door policies for citizens who wish to participate about issues that are important to them is a right guaranteed by the Oregon State Constitution and Oregon’s Statewide Land Use Planning Goals and should be protected for all.


Sustainability, Affordability and Quality of Life

Philomath faces some tough financial growth decisions. It’s time to take a balanced approach to community development, evaluate budget spending and conserve our natural resources in order to preserve the future of Philomath.

Protecting Philomath’s quality of living while managing growth is of highest importance.

Emergency Planning and Preparedness

Philomath is strategically placed at a vital point of service in a natural disaster. Current policies that are actionable on fire protection, water resiliency, strategic food reserves, emergency response and even COVID-19 planning are important to stabilize and protect Philomath in an emergency event.

Citizen Involvement

A key to an informed and represented community and guaranteed by the Oregon Constitution. 

Being involved in local government decisions, helps build a strong sense of community where everyone is welcome…your voice matters.

Philomath's Comprehensive Plan

Philomath is in the process of updating its 20-year Comprehensive Plan. Public participation in this process if key to ensuring the best planning for pedestrian and bike friendly communities, better transportation solutions, safer neighborhoods, affordable living and steady economic growth.

Pedestrian Safety, Traffic Speeds and Roadway Congestion

Main street traffic speeds have become an increasing problem, with the majority of speeders as out-of-town speeders. Solutions must be found to decrease traffic speeds to safer levels for pedestrians and local drivers. The loss of pedestrian life on Main Street in 2021 was a somber reminder of the urgency of this need.

Roadway congestion in Philomath and on all roads between Corvallis and Philomath has greatly increased in the last several years. There is critical need to improve development planning to address congestion for both driver and pedestrian safety, and to reduce emissions from vehicles idling in long lines to get through
congested intersections

Protecting our Community from Environmental Hazards

The development of Millpond Crossing (MPC)has brought new risks to our community members. In particular, the property owners of the development have shouldered this burden. From site contaminants of XXX to the more recent risks of dangerously explosive methane and more recently reported hydrogen sulfide gases, along with groundwater contaminations, this development demands responsiveness from the city of Philomath. I am dedicated to protecting our Philomath residents and not special interests at MPC families' expense.
