Over the course of my career I have been fortunate to have had a wide array of experiences. From owning a small business to a community activist to a Kitsap County Commissioner, I have learned a lot over the years. Obviously being a parent to five children, eight grandchildren and two great-granddaughters, my life has been highlighted. As Mayor of Bremerton I have used my life long experiences to balance the needs of our taxpayers with the overall needs of our community. It’s a tough balancing act but working with members of the community I think we have done a great job during difficult times.
