Many know of Joe as Mayor of Mukilteo 2005-2013. He was a leader in bringing about the new Rosehill Center – among his other achievements.
A few years back Joe stood in for Mayor Ray Stephanson on the Christmas Spectacular. When Brian Tracey stepped down as Master of Ceremonies of the show 2 years ago, Joe stepped up to the plate as M.C – and has been doing a great job!
Since leaving political life, he has found that his new occupation in the field of health care has had some parallels the Christmas Spectacular.
As a matter of fact, he feels so strongly about supporting Make A Wish of Alaska and Washington, he persuaded Dr. Wright to not settle for the initial $10,000 to be raised through Fundraiser tickets. He feels that there will be some guests, who will become inspired during the evening and want to do more for these kids.
Since it just so happens that Joe is a very experienced auctioneer – as many of you Rotarians out there know – he convinced Dr. Wright to include both a Silent and Live Auction as part of their Summer VIP Fundraiser event.
Finally, wearing his “Christmas Spectacular Master of Ceremonies Hat” he is looking forward to the introducing some of the superb talent from the Christmas Spectacular 2018 talent that will be part of the entertainment for this event.
