My Commitment To You!
For too long a succession of professional politicians has mismanaged the DNR. Poorly maintained forests and rangelands have left us fighting massive wildfires, caused loss of lives in such places as Oso and Twisp, and generated costly lawsuits against the state – costing us, the taxpayers, millions of dollars. My background as a management consultant tells me we can do better. As your Commissioner, I will balance the need for preserving our environment with the need to fund our schools, while putting public safety above everything else. It’s time that we take a business approach to our public lands – not a political one. I have a vision, a plan, and the executive experience to lead and bring fundamental change to how the DNR operates.
