For eight years, I’m proud to have volunteered on the Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Board of Directors, and I’d be honored to keep serving you!

As your neighbor, my goal is ensuring when you’re in a crisis, or your loved one needs an immediate response, TVF&R is there with fast, effective service. I’ve worked to keep our low tax rate, without sacrificing service quality. As a former paramedic, I know it’s critical to have highly-trained first responders with modern equipment to keep our community safe.

“Nearly 80% of the emergencies TVF&R responds to are medical in nature. As the only Paramedic on TVF&R’s Board, Randy’s decades-long experience and decision-making skills directly impact my ability to respond to a patient in urgent need of care. - Shelly Hochstetler, Paramedic


Working collaboratively with government officials, healthcare providers, and community leaders, I’ve helped TVF&R be a leader in delivering emergency medical services. I use my skills as a former first responder to support our Fire Chief and protect firefighters on the front line. I use my business experience to effectively manage our tax dollars.

"During his time volunteering on the board, Randy’s worked to keep TVF&R's tax rate low. By implementing policies promoting economies-of-scale and increased efficiencies, TVF&R maintains high quality, affordable services to district residents.” - Andy Duyck, Former Washington County Commission Chair
