As a long time resident, born in Pasco, I seek to serve you on the City Council. I offer my values, experience, and commitment to keep Pasco moving in a positive direction.
Effective city government must be transparent and inclusive. As a past employee of Benton County and Mid-Columbia Libraries, I strived to be an effective and fair steward of public resources—your tax dollars. I believe in using local talent and open source technologies as opposed to remote outsourcing, opaque contracts, and proprietary solutions.
For over a decade, I’ve nurtured our children’s technological skillsets by serving on the Tri-Tech & Kennewick School District Computer Science Advisory Committee. I’ve stressed that while our kids need these skills to successfully participate in the global information economy, it is a disservice to not prepare kids to defend themselves against fraud, bullying, and online scams.
These are the same values I will bring to City Council. The growing number of unhoused individuals, gang activity, street racing, infrastructure and job growth are all sophisticated issues with many moving parts, some of which overlap. Our modern complex problems call for serious leaders who value science over slogans and pursue data driven outcomes. www.vote4zeb.com
