Q) How long have you lived in the fire district?

Q) Why did you choose to be a board member?
A)

Q) Why is being involved in the community important to you; especially in relation to the Higgins Fire District?
A) I decided to become a board member for a number of reasons. The simple answer is that I want to help the people in our district get the best possible fire and emergency medical service available at the best cost. Our system of sharing the the responsibility for these services between Higgins Fire and Cal Fire is a very awkward system. I think there is a lot of room to improve the current system and I would like to help facilitate those changes.

Q) Anything else you would like to share about yourself?
A) I believe I bring a unique perspective to the board. I have been a working member of the fire service in Roseville for 32 years, serving in Union leadership for 7 of those years. This experience helps me relate to the people on the line doing the job. I am also a business owner and fiscal conservative who understands the concerns of the tax payers who have to pay for all government services. The reality is that the demand for services has grown while the level of service Higgins is able to provided has decreased due to budget restraints. I want to help determine and establish appropriate services levels and provide those services at an affordable price.

Q) Why is being involved in the community important to you; especially in relation to the Higgins Fire District?

Q) Why is being involved in the community important to you? Especially in relation to the Higgins Fire District?
A) About ten months ago, I was asked if I would be interested in running as a board member for the local fire district. Because my son and my son-in-law are both firefighters & I already had a heart for our first responders, I thought it would give me the opportunity to be more involved in a personal way and give back to the community. Our health and welfare depends on these brave and well trained men and women and they deserve our support and attention.
