Community

Family is everything.

Vicki and Dennis have raised their 22-year-old daughter, Lauren, in Yakima. They have been business partners for nearly 21 years, owning and operating the Yakima Grocery Outlet together as a team.

Vicki & her family enjoy camping and traveling around our beautiful Pacific Northwest. They love their rescue dogs, their extended family and friends. They love going to the movies and eating giant bags of popcorn. They worship their Lord and Savior, and they genuinely care for our beautiful Yakima Valley.

This love for family and friends extends to the community. To Vicki, family is everything, and she knows that your family is important to you too. She knows that like her, you work hard to support your family and that government is meant to help and support you as you do. Especially in times of need, like now, during the COVID 19 epidemic. This is why she has made it a priority to visit with small business owners and other people in the community, to hear the impact the crisis has has on them, and to discuss how best to help the community through this crisis.

Just One Week's Agenda

August 18, 2020
“How hard does a County Commissioner work? This is one week’s agenda that we recently signed as Commissioners!

I was educating myself for this position by attending the meetings before I was ever appointed so there would be little ‘on the job training’ if they chose me to fill Mike Leita’s position. I was honored to be unanimously voted in as County Commissioner; I hit the ground running and haven’t stopped since.

Please share and follow my Facebook page so I can continue to update you on progress and projects that are vital to the Yakima Valley. There is so much work to be done, and I’ll be working hard each and every day to accomplish as much as possible.
