Fire board hopeful is experienced, unopposed

Steve Kent says he will bring a unique perspective to a diverse board


In Clackamas County’s May 21 special election, registered voters in the Boring Fire District will be asked to vote their preference for board Position No. 5. Only one candidate is listed on the ballot, Steve Kent.

Kent says he wants to continue to “provide the best possible service to the customers of Boring Fire.”

He says he brings more than 20 years of volunteer service and nearly eight years as a career firefighter with Boring Fire. He has lived in the community for 35 years and owned a business for 15.

He wants to offer a new perspective to “aid in making the best decisions for the community.”

He wants to draw upon his life experiences to “seek a higher level of service.”

And he promises to bring a diverse skillset to the board.

Ballots are scheduled to be put in the mail by Friday, May 3, and are due back by 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 21.
