My name is Daniel Polehn. I was born and raised in The Dalles. After graduating from high school I married my “adventuring buddy” Amanda. We have three young children together. I love seeing our kids run around the Treetop Play Park at Sorosis just like I did for so many years. We can’t help but hop in the van to go explore the natural beauty of the gorge.
I work at the Google Data Center in town where I have been for the last 9 years. I really enjoy the creative problem solving that comes with working in our ever changing industry. When I’m not working or at home I enjoy swimming, cycling and running (or at least I tri).
I have a passion for preserving our community’s beauty and ensuring everyone is able to enjoy it for generations to come. I believe we can improve the quality of life in our community through new trails and parks. Now is a great time to do it! For these reasons I have decided to run for the North Wasco County Parks and Recreation board.
I have declared my candidacy to run for my the North Wasco County Parks and Recreation board and filed with the Wasco County Clerk.
