La Pine Rural Fire Protection District Position 2
Special District Election — May 18, 2021
The La Pine Rural Fire Protection District is an important part of our community and this community is important to me and my family. My wife and I raised our family here and built our lives and business here. I live in La Pine because I love the people here and the area’s natural beauty. I want the highest level of fire protection and emergency medical services for residents of the south county area.
The District provides emergency life-saving medical and ambulance and fire protection for our lives and our homes. Like all government services, the District is challenged by explosive growth. These challenges require an experienced board working with paid staff to guide the future of the District as it grows and changes to meet the ever-changing requirements of our community.
As part of my business career, I have Insured over 30 Special Districts. I understand that Special Districts are single-purpose municipalities and how they function.
During my 30 years as owner of Bancorp Insurance, I took the agency from a 3-person business to 13 employees. I did this by building a team of highly motivated, seasoned insurance professionals.
- La Pine Chamber of Commerce — 1992 to 1994 President — 1993
- La Pine Industrial Park Group — 1995 to 2015
- Sunriver La Pine Economic Development Council — 2015 to Present
Currently the Chairman
- La Pine Chamber of Commerce — 2001 to Present.
President — 2018-2019
- La Pine Park and Recreation Budget Committee — 2002 to present.
With my business team building experience, my non-profit board experience, and Special District experience, I am determined to help the District chart a safe and healthy course for our community.
