Engage, Participate, and Communicate

Communities are defined by the people who live, work, and play in our natural and built environments.  The City of Poulsbo attracts individuals, families, and businesses who appreciate our identity and scale.  It is a community of participation where we know our neighbors. As a member of City Council, I work to encourage all of our citizens to remain open and welcoming.  I believe that we must always look for opportunities to engage each other, help each other, and stay focused on the positive.  We will invest in activities and actions that make each us of stronger and as a result our community more vibrant and inclusive.
