“Many people have asked how I was appointed as our County Commissioner, so let me explain.

When Commissioner Mike Leita retired after 15 years, the Republican Party was tasked with finding three candidates for the job. 11 people signed up, and we went through an election process in the Republican Party. I won that process with 52% of the vote, and was advanced with two other candidates. The three candidates were then interviewed and screened by the Yakima County Commissioners. The Commissioners selected me, and I was sworn into office in January 2020.

Before I decided I wanted to do this job, I spent many months in 2019 attending all of the public meetings I could. I asked the Commissioners and staff endless questions, and I met as many stakeholders as possible (contractors, architects, farmers, ranchers, law enforcement, DOC, NY conservation district, water experts, etc). I am really glad I did, so I could hit the ground running!

I am giving you my all, working long hours, much more than full time. I have hired my replacement at our store, so I can focus all my energy on county business. I love my job, and I hope to win your support and vote!”
