I have lived in Connell all my adult life and have worked for the City now for 12 years. During this time I have advanced from the Public Works Supervisor to Public Works Director. I have been involved in the budgeting process of the city most of that time. I have worked with past City Administrators to help increase revenues and made tough choices to reduce expenditures.
I have the knowledge and experience with infrastructure and facilities planning. Being already a part of management, I have an excellent rapport with staff and have always had an open door policy for anyone who wants my ear. After almost 43 years here, I'm committed to Connell with no intention of leaving. I feel that I can be a City Administrator that will work for the good of the city, as well as for the greater good of the community.
During my time with the City I have been apart of building a new waste water treatment plant and seen that double in size with the expansion of CRCC. I have been an integral part of updating close to 80% of our water system, installing new water mains, and reservoirs as well as renovating existing facilities. Been a part a NFSD remodel and new building of the elementary school. I've been apart of theTullamoor project. Have been involved with the building of Oasis Subdivision. All these and some I have not mention are making Connell a better place to live and bring in new business.
