City where I live: Portland
Skills: I earned a B.A. degree from the University of Chicago, an M.B.A. (with a major in accounting) from the University of Portland, and a Juris Doctorate degree from Northwestern School of Law at Lewis & Clark College. I practiced law for 15 years.
3 things I will do if I win:
1. I will get water to solve droughts and fight wildfires. I will ease rush-hour traffic congestion. I will cut the cost of hot water heating, heating houses, and cooling houses.
2. I will increase the salmon runs up the river to spawn. I will lower the level of the oceans by sending some of the water in big rivers–like the Columbia River– to inland area–like eastern Oregon and eastern Washington–that need water.
3. I will provide fresh water for drinking, irrigation, and fire suppression, to sagebrush areas in eastern Oregon and eastern Washington. I will provide abundant non-polluting hydroelectric power from thousands of in-pipe electricity generators.
