City of Brier, Washington

The Mayor is elected by the citizens of Brier to head the administrative branch of city government. The Mayor directs all city operations, projects and programs and administers all policies and laws adopted by the City Council. The Mayor prepares and submits the City's annual budget, keeps the Council apprised of the City's financial and operational status; makes reports and recommendations to the City Council; ensures that all City ordinances and resolutions are implemented and enforced; and hires all office department heads.

My highest priority as your Mayor is to facilitate efficient, effective, reasonable and responsive local government that also plans for the future. I have solicited input from Brier citizens and am working hard to provide City employees with the equipment and skills to perform their jobs well.

I am retired, with 40 years of experience, as a Structural Engineer who has designed projects all over the United States and Canada. I was a Partner and Shareholder of Engineers Northwest Inc. for 20 years and will use my leadership experience in the private sector to assist me as your Mayor.

I have met with Representatives in Olympia and Snohomish County Elected Officials and discussed with them important issues and budget priorities in our City.

Brier is a wonderful place for families and is unique with its larger lots, semi-rural character, open spaces and involved citizens. It is my goal to keep it that way. Please come to one of our City Council meetings to see how local government works and let us know your priorities for our beautiful city.
