The leadership Sparks deserves.

When Paul was four years old, he moved from Lake Tahoe to Carson City with his parents to start a small business. Paul moved to Sparks 36 years ago, when he married his teenage sweetheart, Donna. Donna’s father, Richard lori an Army Colonel, moved to Sparks to lead the Military Science Department at the University of Nevada – Reno.  Paul and Donna raised two boys, Casey 33 and Jesse 29. When the boys were young, Paul realized that he had a passion for serving others. Whether it was through coaching and refereeing soccer or working at Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful events, Paul found great joy in doing service work.


While working in the petroleum industry, Paul’s peers throughout the state nominated him and Governor Gibbons appointed him to the Nevada Board of Agriculture. His ability to listen to and work with the public, political groups, and agency staff to make decisions impacting our state is what he’s brought to the City of Sparks.


As a Sparks Councilman, Paul currently serves on the following Boards and Commissions: Washoe County Animal Services Advisory Committee – Vice Chair, Truckee Meadows Water Authority Board of Directors, Western Regional Water Commission – Vice Chair, Washoe County School District Capital Funding Protection (WC-1) Committee, Washoe County School District Oversight Committee for School Facilities (WC-1), Truckee River Flood Management Authority – Alternate, Regional Planning Governing Board – Alternate, Reno/Sparks Joint Sewer Coordinating Committee – Alternate, Nevada Veterans Memorial Plaza Board of Directors and the Washoe Suicide Prevention Alliance
