I'm running because I want to support our businesses and help create new jobs.
I'm a High School graduate attending YVCC business courses.
I was born in Portland, Oregon; I relocated to Union Gap in 2004.
My background is in motel/restaurant management; I recently worked as a front-line manager for Whirlpool Corporation.
Union Gap has the potential to be a great destination city! We need a Chamber of Commerce to realize that potential. I'm convinced untapped sources are available to help support our Parks and Recreation Department, and will work to alleviate the taxpayers' burden in this respect.
