It would be an honor and privilege to represent Fair Family on the Board of Directors. My history is over 20 years of service. First 10 years ran the sound company at Hoarse Chorale and the last 10+ have been as the voice of the South Sweep. This experience has given me the opportunity to meet many of our family and give our visitors one last positive experience before they head home. My hope is to be part of a board that provides leadership to not just make decisions but provide solutions.

Many of you may not know my name or recognize my face but I promise to work hard for you. The last 10 years I have been an active participant in board meetings, amplified sound after hours, and pre-post management. Working with and having friends in many other facets of the fair has given me great insight to the workings of the fair and it’s volunteers. Having worked in management at Da Vinci Days, Eugene Celebration and the Portland Rose Festival I have experience in what it takes to put on a major event in this state. My experience with big budgets and issues that are part of these types of events gives me the confidence in dealing with the challenges they present.

My promise is, when making a decision, that the VOLUNTEERS come first! It is very important that, as a board member, I remember the ripple effect our decisions make. My goals are:
To work with the family to reduce the load on recycling
Feed our volunteers
One volunteer pass = One S.O.
Clean porta-potties and resources on Monday
Reduce pass and ticket costs
Find more revenue streams to reduce the burden on volunteers to foot the bill.

Thank you for your consideration.
