New Vision for West Linn

We need city leaders with vision that can make tough decisions now. I will use my business, government, and personal experience to improve our community. West Linn and the greater region are experiencing unprecedented growth and challenges. Our city has a voice in guiding the region; we must expand our collaboration to account for West Linn’s interests. I will take a hard stance against tolling, develop a clear vision for economic opportunities, and improve the effective use of city resources.
