Priorities

As your mayor, here are a few of my big priorities that I hope to continue to work on over the next couple of years:

Transportation and Infrastructure
 

  • Fighting back against the unfair plan to toll only West Linn’s stretch of I-205. The current plan is flawed and targets our community's residents and businesses.

  • Finding solutions to address the deficit in our water maintenance fund to keep our water system strong and finding funding for the required water line replacements on I-205 (Abernethy Bridge, Sunset Bridge and West A Street Bridge water lines).

  • Seeking funding from the State for Highway 43 road improvements. Let's fix those potholes! Highway 43 is a state-owned right of way, meaning they are responsible for improving its condition.

  • Continuing to fund road improvement projects for our local streets to make sure that our street system is safe and reliable.

  • Supporting Safe Routes to School programs and increased public transit options for safer and better mobility.


Planning for a Bright Future

 

  • Visioning and building a community recreation center with indoor pickleball and sport courts, recreation space and leisure space. Community engagement will be a key component of this idea. What amenities would you like to see?

  • Moving the Waterfront Project plan and revitalization of the Highway 43 corridor forward. These ideas and plans have tons of potential to bring exciting new opportunities to our City, and I look forward to working with the community to determine what they will look like.

  • Fully funding the renovation of Historic City Hall in partnership with the Willamette Falls and Landings Heritage Area Coalition.

  • Seeking community involvement in our planning processes to ensure that the City’s vision for our future is informed by what the community wants to see.


Public Safety and Policing

 

  • Fully funding our police department to make sure that we have the resources required to respond to calls for service in our City.

  • Getting the Police Oversight Board up and running with a group of fair-minded citizens to help restore the public trust and ensure police accountability.

Partnerships

 

  • Continuing to form strong ties with regional partners and local governments like Oregon City, Tualatin, Lake Oswego,  Clackamas County, the School District, and Metro. We are stronger in our advocacy when we work together.

Fiscal Responsibility, Communication, and Transparency

 

  • Making decisions that use our tax dollars in a responsible and cautious manner while balancing the City budget.

  • Governing the City in a transparent and open manner and keeping an open dialogue with fellow West Linn residents to ensure that our City organization is meeting the needs of the community.

  • Restarting the pre-covid practice of hosting meet and greets at coffee shops to listen to constituents’ concerns and ideas.

  • Running City Council meetings with humility, civility and efficiency. Every community member deserves to be heard.
