Preserving our Valley. Planning for our Future.

The Port of Walla Walla is the lead agency responsible for this valley’s economic potential. It’s responsible for leveraging local with global resources to create real prosperity here; not just strong businesses, but thriving communities with great jobs and a practical, promising future for us all.

These are some of my goals for our port, and I'm eager to hear what you think!

  • Collaborating on a 2050 vision for the Walla Walla Valley to look beyond the current wine and tourist boom.

  • Respecting the unique nature of the Walla Walla Valley and supporting agriculture-aligned development.

  • Building new businesses that create great jobs for all with opportunities for graduates to grow their careers here.

  • Attracting investments to build new businesses in water, energy, and food technology.

  • Championing innovative solutions to the challenging wage-staffing-affordable housing crises that limit economic development.

  • Developing industrial opportunities in western Walla Walla County.
