MEET THE CANDIDATES May 18th Election – Pioneer Series: Kevin Stoecker, Port of Tillamook Commissioner Position #3

EDITOR’S NOTE: The May 18th ballot features dozens of opportunities to serve your community on local boards for our schools, ports, transportation district, recreation districts, water districts, fire districts and more. There is not a voters pamphlet for a primary/special election, therefore the Pioneer provides this opportunity for candidates to tell voters about themselves and the position they are seeking, even if running unopposed.
Tillamook County Pioneer CANDIDATE’S STATEMENT – 5 minute “why we should vote for you” pitch; include information about why you are running for the position and your TOP 3 most-important-issues facing the board/organization you wish to serve on.

MEET THE CANDIDATE: Kevin Stoecker, Port of Tillamook Commissioner Position #3

I’m a fiscal hawk with regards to government budgets. Accountability is a priority. I am the current chair of the Tillamook County Solid Waste Division Budget Committee, and have served for the last 5 yrs. I also served for 7 yrs on the Parks Advisory Board. I look forward to serving you.
The Port of Tillamook bay has many issues to resolve. First being development of trail system from banks to Tillamook. Second, vacancies of office space. Third, prevent major spills into Andersen creek.
