Jim and his wife Betsy moved to Vancouver in 1979. Within a few months they decided Clark County was the place where they would permanently settle and raise their family. All three of their children, Laura, Clark and Ray went through Vancouver schools, each graduating from Columbia River High School.

Essentially, this election is a job interview and decision to hire an individual to strongly advocate for the best interests of all those in the Clark Regional Wastewater District. We need someone with experience and someone who can keep pace with the change that will continue to take place.

Jim has a diverse business background with many years in the hospitality sector, the financial services industry and, twelve years ago, established a thriving practice in the Commercial Real Estate industry. His focus is serving small and medium sized companies, most locally owned, with their leasing needs. Helping them with purchasing commercial property when the time is right.

With that focus, Jim is an active member in Vancouver, Battleground and Camas-Washougal Chambers of Commerce, the Columbia River Economic Development Council, Southwest Washington Contractors Association (SWCA), Evergreen Business Association, and the Hazel Dell -Salmon Creek Business Association.

Every day he is in contact and listens to a wide range of Clark County community members. He has a pulse on the challenges they face in this tough economic climate.

Jim has served 12 years on the Clark County Family YMCA Board, with a 5 year stint as it’s Chair. He currently serves in leadership roles on the Vancouver Chamber of Commerce Board, the SWCA Board and the Greater Clark County Rotary. He is a recent graduate of the Leadership Clark County program.
