North Bend is a great community with great people and amazing views.
The City touts we are the premier outdoor adventure destination for Puget Sound. However, that is not where they are leading us:
Development is at an all-time high and getting worse.
Traffic is unbearable.
Water rights are almost gone.
Sewer rates are doubling.
To address these issues and more, we must ensure that the citizens’ voices and concerns are heard. I have plans to do this. Among them are: convenient meeting times for citizens so more people can attend, greater transparency in all City business, and the creation of a Citizen Review Board to keep decision making on track.
We must have infrastructure in place before we allow growth. That is the smart thing to do, which is why I am running for City Council.
