McCall is a Bay City Councilor, Tillamook County’s Solid Waste Program Manager. McCall will focus on important local issues such as, housing, quality services, recycling and sustainability, infrastructure repair, and emergency preparedness.
“I have a wide range of experiences and I want to use my knowledge to serve Tillamook County residents. I believe we need to better integrate the traditional roles of forestry, fishing and farming with tourism. Tourism has been growing faster than the support structures needed to support it. Each of these industries has an important role to play, but we need to work together to be successful. I have proven my ability to convene diverse groups and achieve innovative results to challenging problems. As commissioner I will continue to promote transparency and collaborative efforts that benefit our community,” said McCall.
