Thanks from Town Marshal


I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community of Coupeville for supporting me as the Coupeville Town Marshal. I have enjoyed working for a community that works together to make this a wonderful place to live, work, visit and play. You have highlighted for me the concept of “community policing,” and these years of law enforcement will go down as a highlight in my career. Without exception I have enjoyed working with the town staff, the town council, school staff, the hospital staff, the business owners, the community volunteers and the residents of Coupeville. You will continue to hold a special place in my heart and will probably see me around town. As you consider the future of law enforcement in Island County, continue to work with and demand law enforcement that is in touch with the community.
