I was appointed in the fall of 2020 to fill a vacant board seat and bring useful experience in technology and business to the Co-op board. I am running for the board to continue working on the infrastructure our Co-op needs to sustain our operations and grow responsibly. I have founded several businesses during my career including Allrecipes.com, I am a board member for OPALCO and Rock Island Communications, and a Library Trustee for the San Juan Island Library District. In the past, I was co-chair of the Agricultural Guild and helped conclude the purchase of the Brickworks property in Friday Harbor. I ask for your vote so I continue to improve our Co-op and better serve the membership.
