Newport is on the cusp of exciting times. As mayor I have worked to build and maintain relationships with the Port of Newport, Hatfield Marine Science Center, Oregon Coast Aquarium, Oregon Coast Community College, NOAA and wave energy organizations.
I participated in the search for a new city manager that led to the hiring of Spencer Nebel, and I will continue to encourage improvement of the City’s infrastructure and support the city manager tokeep the city’s budget sustainable. If re-elected, I will continue to work on the dramatic changes taking place in South Beach, including the building of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry’s Coastal Discovery Center, Oregon State University’s expanded campus and commercial and residential growth. I will continue my office hours at City Hall, the first and thirdTuesday of each month from 3-5 p.m
