Elected Experience

I have no elected political experience; however, I do have much life experience as a team player. Furthermore, I have worked in large bureaucracy’s from the King County Library System to manufacturing Fortune 500 corporations.

Statement: Government is a bureaucracy that primary goal is to enforce social norms of society, and Hughes (2017) summarizes this as, “a public administrator is someone who follows the rules to the letter, who carries out instructions given by someone else, in theory the political leadership, but is not personally accountable.” I’m running for this position to keep the promise of the accountability of government. I do not

wish to come into this office to fight the system, but to complement it. I will offer my educational assets together with my practical business experience with new ideas that will enhance the function of this city.

I believe in transparency along with accountability to the citizens of this city from this

I believe that our local government should work for the betterment of all Ocean Shores residents by investing in organizations and projects that improve our quality of life.

Ocean Shores must prioritize affordable housing for seniors and the people who live and work in our community. We should be supplementing organizations like the Ocean Shores Food Bank and Senior Center, and supporting our small businesses by making the city safe, inviting, and easier to navigate for our annual tourists. Our city is growing, and we must ensure that growth benefits our citizens first! I intend to work with my fellow council members, the mayor, and our local businesses and organizations to collaboratively reach these goals.

I am running for city council because I believe it is the most effective way for me to have a positive impact on this beautiful small town. I chose to retire here because Ocean Shores is a quiet and friendly place with a closeness to nature. Many of you moved here for the same reason, and together we can work to preserve the quality of life that attracted us to Ocean Shores. I have been a public participant at council meetings and commented on topics of importance to citizens, but a three-minute presentation does not allow for the level of involvement I can bring as a council member.

I have broad financial experience, I am thoughtful and articulate, and I can bring my diversity of experience to deal with city council issues both financial and operational. We need to get away from the notion of “It’s always been done that way” and I will

I was lucky to have been raised in Grays Harbor, where my parents still operate a small family owned business that they purchased in 1979.

After graduating from college, I was fortunate to have begun my career at the Port of Grays Harbor in 1992 where I worked for eight years in the Property Division. I joined the team at the City of Aberdeen in 2000. For the last 21 years I have been with the City’s Community Development Department; serving the last fifteen years as Director where I oversee the Building, Code Compliance, Planning and Property Maintenance

My passion is serving the local community. I have called Ocean Shores home for

five years now. I am grateful that we have outstanding first responders in Ocean Shores. Ensuring that our city provides quality services to our citizens is of the utmost importance to me. I want the city to continue to support both our Police and Fire Departments, so that they can continue to provide exceptional professional services to our growing population. Likewise, supporting growth in an environmentally friendly way is a high priority of mine. I am very invested in making sure that current codes are followed when development happens. We need to finish the Comprehensive Plan. We need to rewrite the Zoning Code to support the goals and policies of the Comprehensive Plan since this is where good ordinances and codes come from.

I am a big supporter of our small businesses, without them there is no Ocean Shores. They need all of our help to survive today’s unique environment.

I am an outdoor enthusiast and believe that Ocean Shores is the gem for recreation activities. Supporting activities such as golfing, fresh waterways, walking trails and the beach are necessary for Ocean Shores to stay competitive.


I’m running for Position 5 because I want the Council to represent the best aspirations of the people of Ocean Shores. If elected, I will work with you to improve our town.

My financial experience will help us keep costs down and identify new or existing revenues so we can avoid increasing taxes. I will work to promote responsible growth to prepare our city for the future while protecting our appreciation of green spaces and wildlife. Together we can make Council better!

I see an increased need for investment in our young people. Year-round jobs and summer entertainment are important issues for them. If elected I will work with fellow council members to develop opportunities for our youth.

The Council’s job is to set financial priorities, establish policy, and make legislative decisions. The best way to do that is to listen to our citizens. If elected, I will listen to your advice and suggestions. I understand how important it is to be heard.

Our citizens are involved and interested in who represents them on Council. We can work together to make Ocean Shores the home you want it to be. Please vote for Lorraine Hardin, Position #5.

As a member of city council, I will continue my involvement in the community and utilize my skills and experience to help move Ocean Shores toward a better future.

Please mark your ballot for David Linn, Position 7.


Covid has negatively impacted us all, but every crisis offers unique and exciting opportunities. I am running for City Council because I hope to be your advocate and inspire our community to embrace those opportunities and rebuild even better, for the future citizens of beautiful Ocean Shores.

I pledge to collaborate with other members of the Ocean Shores City Council, the Mayor, and our city department heads. I will negotiate common ground solutions to maximize efficiency, stretching your taxpayer dollars to help our city move forward, without raising taxes and fees that weigh so heavily on our small businesses and families in a post Covid world.

I will work on plans that make our city more accessible, our downtown more enjoyable, and our community safer for everyone.

I will continue to invest wisely for the future of our city’s fresh waterways, golf course, beaches and infrastructure.

Finally, I will always be approachable and responsive to the residents of our community, and make sure your voice is heard and included regarding the issues our City Council is facing. Excellent customer service has always been my priority during my career and I will bring these same values to the City Council.


A government, in which all citizens participate, makes for a healthy prosperous community. As Director Of Operations for a high tech company responsible for millions of dollars in revenue, as a business owner and software developer, I have spent over 40 years solving problems. I’m trained to take complex problems and break them down to manageable, solutions making them efficient and cost effective.

Ocean Shores wants and needs change. I will include every citizen and taxpayer in the financial decisions for our city. I will achieve this is by having frequently scheduled town halls, community meetings and utilizing social media.

It is the duty of the city to provide essential services for all residents. I am fiscally conservative. Prudent spending of taxpayers’ money will be my highest priority. I will support our business community by providing an environment that allows them to grow and prosper. This will be accomplished by working with my Council colleagues to review our current ordinances on an ongoing basis. We can and will eliminate outdated ordinances and clarify conflicting ones.

To restore and foster trust between the citizens and our city will result in a more enjoyable and prosperous community.

    What can I say? A veritable rogues gallery of wannabes and not a clue in the bunch. Even the professional consultant hired by the one trying to buy a seat hasn’t a clue! Am I the only one tired of sorting through the BS trying to find the lesser of the evils?
