About Paul

Paul saw first-hand the ability of local government to affect the daily lives of residents and business owners. As a resident of an unincorporated area of Clackamas County, he was concerned with a lack of effective public process for land use applications. That led to his involvement in several local governing boards and committees, where he used his personal experiences to ensure effective public engagement and decision making for all community members.
