Board of Directors
The OlyCAP Board of Directors meets the 2nd Wednesday of every other month.
Greg Brotherton is serving his first term as Jefferson County Commissioner and has been on the OlyCAP Board since 2019. He previously served on the Quilcene School Board, and opened and ran several retail businesses in rural Jefferson County. He brings a passion for regulatory reform and in pursuit of equitable access to the necessities of life. As a recently elected Chair of OlyCAP, Greg is still learning of the breadth and depth of services that OlyCAP offers. As a small rural county, we rely on OlyCAP to offer many of the Human Services that are so critical to positive social outcomes.
Greg brings experience from the tech industry, education, the arts, retail and education as a generalist eager to identify and work collaboratively toward solutions for the many social and economic struggles in our community. The lack of affordable housing is one example of a seemingly intractable problem in our community that OlyCAP has the experience and perspective to address. This lack is consistently identified as a root cause of poor health, social, and economic outcomes. Greg is committed to developing workable solutions for this and other gaps in our social fabric, and thankful to be part of the OlyCAP team as we make real differences in people’s lives.
