Strengthen our Partnership with Camas Public Schools
Camas’s excellent schools are vital to the future of the city. While the City does not “govern” or run the schools, it is essential that City government continues to be a key supporting partner to ensuring the continued success of our award-winning school district.
Steve’s Plan of Action
Steve will actively engage with School Board leaders to coordinate city and school levies to ensure that each entity has the proper funding, while keeping the overall tax burden low for Camasonians. Through the relationships he has built with the school district over the past few decades—both before and during his service on the City Council—Steve will keep two-way communications open to ensure a harmonious relationship between the City and School District in order to best serve all of Camas.
Steve has long been an active supporter of Camas schools. He was president of the Camas Educational Foundation in 2001. He was a Camas School District Bond Committee Member, and has been an active member of Camas Citizens for Quality Schools. Steve has been active in the Camas High School Athletics & Camas Athletics Booster Club for decades. He served on the Hall of Fame Board of Directors since 2014, and was the Girls & Boys Varsity Soccer Announcer from 1998-2018.
