OLCV’s Pints & Politics

It was an honor to speak at Pints & Politics last night as a candidate endorsed by the Oregon League of Conservation Voters.

I am passionate about getting people outside for the health of our community and to instill shared values of preserving Central Oregon’s beautiful landscape.

Parks Budget Tour: New Parks

On the Parks Budget Tour, we visited parks sites underway.

Neighborhood parks are important because they are walkable and bikable. System Development Charges (SDCs) paid by developers fund parks within new housing developments.

Eagle Park is nearly 4 acres and will include paved paths, soft trails, a playground, native plants area, picnic tables, and benches.

Parks Budget Tour: Urban Trails

I attended the Parks Budget Tour yesterday, covered by Central Oregon Daily.

I was excited to see 2 urban trails projects I support.

1. East-West trail improvements along the canal for 5.7 miles from the Deschutes River to Hansen Park, including surface repairs, signage, doggie stations, and more.

2. Collaborating with the City to add signage and improve the sidewalks on NW Riverfront Street. This street connects downtown and Old Mill, from Drake Park to Miller’s Landing.

League of Women Voters Forum

Thank you to the League of Women Voters of Deschutes County for hosting the Parks candidate forum last night.

I expressed my passion for the environment and enthusiasm for the role Parks play in our community.

Campaign Going Strong

Yesterday I worked with volunteers to prepare the door-to-door campaign.

I’m putting vigorous energy into my campaign because I want to serve the community in this job. I have the background with my Political Science degree, service on non-profit boards, and passion for the outdoors.
