Baumgartner Defeats Marr in Primary Election

Serving the counties of Ferry, Grant, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Spokane, Stevens and Whitman. 9-10 2010

The LARGEST New Home Show in the Inland Northwest!

The 6th Annual Fall Festival presented by Pro-Build opens this weekend! Twenty-Four of Spokane’s FINEST builders have brought together Forty-One beautiful homes for this highly anticipated, FREE event! Leonard Terzenbach & Michael Baumgartner

Michael Baumgartner, the SHBA endorsed candidate for the 6th Legislative District Senate seat, soundly defeated incumbent Senator Chris Marr in the Primary Election. Once all of the votes were counted, Baumgartner defeated Marr by 6.6%. Baumgartner received 53.3% of the vote, with Marr receiving just 46.7%. This is a significant margin, as no challenger in the 751 top-two blanket primaries since 1993, who won by more than 3.5%, has lost in the general election. It would be unprecedented for a challenger this strong to lose the general. Senator Marr is one of the building industry’s biggest enemies. He is supported by organizations such as

Progressive Majority, Fuse, trial attorneys, and practically every labor union. He is in favor of strict land use policies to inhibit the phenomena known as “global warming”. Despite his protests, Marr is a tax and spending liberal playing election year politics. During the last legislative session, Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown (Spokane) protected Marr (as she knew he would be vulnerable in this year’s election) by allowing him to vote no on ESSB 6130, the bill which repealed the 2/3rd’s majority vote to impose new or increase existing taxes. Marr’s voting record proves he is in favor of higher taxes and fees, as well as stricter regulations on business and the building industry. >>>Continued on page 14

While times have certainly changed, the builders and members of the Spokane Home Builders Association have come together to bring about a show that grew in size over 2009 by nearly 15%! The community will be impressed with the increased number of homes as this year’s show features dozens of varieties from starter homes, to luxury homes in every neighborhood! >>>Continued on page 16

President’s Letter

year pay increase. More money in the hands of employees is good for our state and our economy!  The No on I-1082 campaign would also have you believe business owners and their workers will be unprotected because the workers comp system would be left open to operate unregulated and unaccountable to anyone.  Nothing in I-1082 exempts insurers from insurance regulations or comsumer protection laws.  In fact,  I-1082 enhances consumer protection by requiring the state to abide by the same insurance regulations as private companies.  Currently, L&I is exempt from those laws.

The Yes on I-1082 campaign is progressing well. Signs are now in the windows of our members businesses, and in their yards at home. The word is quickly spreading to the voters in Washington state that privatization of workers comp insurance will lower costs for both employers and employees and help save jobs.

Kim Momb Scholarship Winners 2010

The No on I-1082 campaign, which is exclusively financed by labor unions and trial attorneys, would have you believe costs will skyrocket if the initiative is passed. Quite the contrary is true, and the facts continue to prove that employer’s costs decrease when provided a choice in insurers. Earlier this month, Oregon announced their workers compensation rates will decrease yet again in 2011.  This trend of rates not increasing has sustained itself since 1990 when Oregon privatized their workers comp system.  In 2011, rates will decrease another 1.8%.  Since privatization of their rates, Oregon’s employers have enjoyed savings of $18.2 billion dollars in rate reductions. Washington employees will also see a direct benefit on their paycheck. Currently, state allows a portion of workers comp to come out of the employee’s paycheck. When I-1082 passes, the employee portion is gone and the average full time employee (framing homes for instance) will receive about a $1000.00 a

Another misconception being circulated to instill fear in the common worker is that benefits will be reduced under the new system. The truth is no benefits are being changed in I-1082.  Workers who are injured on the job will receive the exact same benefits as they are under L&I’s monopoly.  The initiative simply ends the monopoly and gives employers a choice in whom to choose as their insurer. Workers’ compensation tax rates are more than 50% higher than they were ten years ago. The Department of Labor & Industries’ administrative costs have increased 82% from 1999 – 2009. In Washington, the average injured worker with a time-loss claim misses 270 days of work – more than twice the national average. Oregon’s average time loss rate, is about 70 days. As the election nears, the supporters of the No on I-1082 campaign will spread more lies about what approval of the initiative will actually achieve.  If you have any questions about what I-1082 does and does not do, please visit the Yes on I-1082 website at  Most of the misconceptions about the measure can be found there.  Alternatively, you may contact a SHBA staff member or speak to me directly. If you think it’s time to start saving money on business taxes and to put employees ahead of government spending, vote yes on I-1082.


The Kim Momb Scholarship is awarded to the children of members in good standing of the Spokane Home Builders Association who are pursuing a higher education. This year’s winners all display qualities of dedication and integrity that go beyond the classroom. The applicants have been leaders in their community and show a willingness to serve those around them through hard work.

At home in Eagle Ridge


Builders Overview

The way Lori Henriksen tells the story, she came into the real estate business through the back door. Since then, though, Henriksen has opened the door to quality living for hundreds of families in the Eagle Ridge neighborhood. Henriksen is the general manager at Eagle Ridge and a vice president with Newland Communities, a San Diego-based company that develops neighborhoods nationwide. She’s been working at Eagle Ridge since 1998, when GenStar Land Co. owned the Latah Valley neighborhood, located five minutes south of downtown Spokane along U.S. 195. When she started, the neighborhood had 25 homes and 260-some empty home lots. Now, the neighborhood has 590 occupied homes with 75 lots and land for developing another 400 lots in the future. “I think we’ll be sold through our available lots by June of 2011,” Henriksen said, adding the development will be introducing some new styles of homes that she believes will be popular with buyers. “Some people would say that’s foolishly optimistic. I think it’s realistically optimistic.” At Eagle Ridge, Henriksen has helped create something she had as a kid but couldn’t find for most of her adult life: a neighborhood where people did lots of things together. She grew up in a big, active neighborhood in Walnut Creek, Calif., where there were a lot of neighborhood activities. Recently, the people from that neighborhood had a 35th anniversary neighborhood camping trip. While living on the East Coast as an adult, Henriksen looked for that kind of community but didn’t find it. She owned and operated a wellness business back East that worked with individuals to live healthier and to create wellbeing in their lives. This involved creating a home environment that was conducive to wellbeing—creating a sacred place, Henriksen said. More and more, she spent time working in clients’ homes and on that home environment. In the mid-1990s, she decided she wanted to move back West. She began looking for opportunities in the Inland Northwest and accepted a position as community ambassador at Eagle Ridge in 1998. Immediately, Henriksen became involved in the Spokane Home Builders Association. She volunteered Eagle Ridge as a host site for the 1998 Showcase of Homes, which was a split-site tour with a half dozen houses on display at Eagle Ridge and another half dozen at The Ridge at Hangman. A couple of years later, Newland bought the neighborhood and followed Henriksen’s suggestion to reconfigure the lots to connect all of the walking trails through the neighborhood and to allow for more green space and pocket parks throughout Eagle Ridge. In 2001, Henriksen bought a house in the neighborhood she was promoting and helping to create. “I’ve never regretted my decision to live here,” she said. Through the years, Henriksen has remained heavily involved in events, sitting on planning committees for home shows and other events, as well as recently finishing a two-year stint on SHBA’s board of directors. “No exaggeration,” she said. “It has been a delight to be involved.” By Linn Parish

Associate Profile

A Mutually Benefical Relationship

St. Marie saw benefit of membership; SHBA benefits from her association!

Twenty-some years ago, Tanna St. Marie was a title-insurance veteran who saw untapped potential for her company in the home building industry. She joined the Spokane Home Builders Association in an effort to meet more builders and to secure them as clients. At that time, St. Marie knew joining the group would be good for her company. SHBA, however, couldn’t have known how good it would be for the association to have her as a member. St. Marie, who now serves as vice president and sales manager at Pacific Northwest Title, has been heavily involved in SHBA through most of the past 20-some years. She has served on the organization’s executive board for eight years and currently presides as second vice president, the highest office a non-builder can hold in SHBA. In addition, she has chaired Fall Festival of Homes events in past years, and this past June, she led the committee that organized the Showcase of Green Homes. “My husband says I should be in the Army because I like to volunteer,” she laughed. St. Marie has worked in the title industry for 33 years, having starting in 1977 as a typist at First American Title. She worked her way through the ranks on the insurance side of the business, then switched to the sales and

marketing side when she took a position at Spokane County Title. After long stints with other title companies, St. Marie joined Pacific Northwest Title 15 years ago. Hired as a title officer initially, she was offered and accepted the position of sales manager two months after joining the company. Presently, she has held every possible position at a title company except bookkeeper and president. She said she enjoys both working internally with Pacific Northwest Title staff, and working externally with the real estate and building communities. “I don’t always see this as management,” St. Marie said. “I see what I’m doing as being able to encourage people and lead people to success in their careers.” With SHBA, St. Marie said she has witnessed a dramatic change for the better in the last decade, a change that she attributes to the leadership and direction of executive officer Joel White. “It is 100 percent better than it was 10 years ago,” she said. “It’s more focused. It’s more professional. The benefits and the value to the members are really incredible.” By Linn Parish September-October 2010


Membership Blitz

It’s time for all of us to pitch in because Membership is Everybody’s Business! That’s right I said Membership is Everybody’s Business! Now more than ever those words can’t be more important. No matter how long you’ve been a member and no matter how many members you may have recruited, right now Membership certainly is EVERYONE’S Business. As a recruiter and as my short time as a board member I’ve heard, “I’ve done my job with recruiting” and we truly thank you for that effort because we know recruiting isn’t everyone’s gig. Right now, however, the work our Association does and the work that it needs to do can’t be done by us alone. We need new blood and new energy. Bottom-line we need new members and you are the only ones that can help with that.


Right now there are over 3000 registered contractors Specialty and Generals in the Spokane area that are in business, not to mention the thousands of businesses that support the construction industry. So we know there are businesses out there that could benefit from being a member. We also know many of you know someone you are doing business with that is generating income from you being in the construction industry that deserves to be invited to be a member of SHBA. The number one reason companies don’t join an association is usually because they haven’t been asked. So ask!

Not sure how to ask? Then here’s all we need you to do: 1. Look in your phone directory on your cell phone, look at your accounting records, your PDA and for you old folks like Membership Director Bill Taylor look in your Rolodex and write down the names & contact information of businesses you do business with. 2. By October 5th fax that information over to Bill (509)532-4980 or email Those that aren’t members he’ll send back to you and all we need you to do is invite them to be members and that’s it. We’ll have some great incentives for them to join during the Spiketoberfest Membership Blitz October 19-21. 3.

Let me close with this, the fall Spiketoberfest Membership Blitz sponsored by new member Parr Lumber, takes place October 19-21. The SHBA Membership Committee needs you and your leads for the Spiketoberfest 2010 Blitz to be successful. No matter how long you’ve been a member, weíre all in this together. Together we can make the legislature act and VOTE YES on I-1082 in November, this initiative will reform workers compensation in Washington that is years overdue. “Together we face the battle”, truer words have never been written. These words are embroidered on hats SHBA made to help support SHBA Executive Officer Joel White’s fight against cancer. Joel’s dedication to our industry and this Association during this time has been unwavering. It’s now time we stepped to the plate and show our dedication to SHBA. All we need is just 2 hours of your time to the association one day during the October 19-21 membership Blitz to help SHBA grow or at the very least lend us your sub, supplier, and vendor lists so we can reach out to those that are non-members. Together we can prove we are the definitive voice in the construction industry and we are the Building Industry Association of Eastern Washington. We’ve all heard, “if not us, who and if not now, when”. WE, all 1015 members are the who and the when is ”NOW”! Don’t hesitate to call me with any questions Sincerely,


Shaun Bleeker, owner Bonded Adjustment Company & 2010 Membership Committee Chair Director (509)624-5181.

Members in Action

Member 2 Member Relationships that go beyond the bottom line For the past 12 years David Lawless of Arrow Concrete and Asphalt has been a dedicated member of the Spokane Home Builders Association and when Lawless needs a truck for his specialty concrete company he calls Norm Mossoni of Gus Johnson Ford, a fellow member of the Association. “I’ve been doing business with Dave and Arrow Concrete for over 10 years. In the way he approaches business relationships, he’s just a really great guy,” Mossoni says of Lawless. “He doesn’t expect me to work for nothing and knows that we don’t want him to pay anymore than he has to. He is a great customer and loyal.” Mossoni and Gus Johnson Ford has been a member of the Association for the last 3 years and also supply trucks to another member, Dick Dixon of Gold Seal Mechanical. Early in their relationship Mossoni needed some plumbing work done at his personal home so he called Gold Seal to come and take a look. As Dixon’s crew was working on the project, a pipe broke and the quick fix turned into a much bigger project. With Thanksgiving only days away and family planning on coming over, Mossoni desperately needed his bathroom to be operational. But Gold Seal stayed and got it done. “Then he even held to their original bid. That’s the kind of guy Dick is,” Norm says of Dixon. “His ethics are unbelievably strong in how he does business.” Sometime’s business relationships between members turn into lifetime friendships. Not only does Gold Seal Mechanical buy and service their 70 trucks at Gus Johnson but Dixon’s family does as well. Gold Seal Mechanical has been a longtime member of the Association for over 27 years. It’s smart business to do business with a member. Not only can you grow business but you can grow someone else’s as well.

Election Continued

Continued from cover... Mike Baumgartner wants to reduce burdensome regulations on business and reduce increased spending that Marr has voted in favor of. Mike has also been very vocal about his support of I-1082, and has been talking to voters about the benefits of the measure as he doorbells his way across the 6th District. Marr has been actively campaigning against the initiative. No big surprise, given his major supporters – labor unions and trial attorneys – are opposed to the privatization of workers’ comp insurance. If there is any question about how Marr views BIAW and members of the SHBA, let’s think back to the BIAW Legislative Reception earlier this year…where was Chris that evening?  He had a prior engagement at MBA King/Sno’s Legislative Reception.  Think about that for a moment, then mark your ballot for Mike Baumgartner. We encourage you to all become involved in this promising candidate’s campaign. For more information about how you can help Chris Marr lose this year’s election, please attend the CBT-PAC meetings or contact Government Affairs Director, Edie Streicher at the SHBA office. Congratulations to SHBA Endorsed Candidates We would like to congratulate all of the SHBA endorsed candidates who emerged victorious in the primary election. Now the real work begins, as the general election is now in full

swing. Please consult the list of SHBA endorsed candidates (right) when casting your ballot this November. The candidates your Board of Directors approved have been vetted through the CBT-PAC, and understand the value the home building industry brings to our community. I-1082 Signs Now Available Our shipment of Yes on I-1082 signs have arrived! Please contact a SHBA staff member for signs for your yard and business! City of Spokane – Transportation Impact Fees Transportation Impact Fees are back on the docket for a hearing with City Council.

The fees for commercial and retail buildings are exceedingly high. Please join SHBA members and staff as we testify in opposition to these fees targeted at our industry and home buyers during a time when the housing market is already struggling to survive. City Council anticipates a hearing on the fees on Monday, October 4th at 6:00 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall. For more Information, please contact Edie Streicher at the SHBA office.

The LARGEST Home Show in the Inland Northwest! Watch for updates on award-winners, directions to our FIVE featured Host Sites this year, view the BRAND NEW virtual show guide, and much, much more! We’ve seen tremendous growth and support from our Association members in the form of sponsors, advertisers, and especially committee involvement! The show’s special features including the Children’s Miracle Network Home, Built Green® Homes, and the beautiful Home benefiting the Spokane Home Builders Association are some of the many diamonds in this year’s show to boast about!

2009 Fall Festival VIP Night


Builders Overview

The Association Board of Directors and staff would like to acknowledge the individuals on the Fall Festival of Homes committee this year led by Chair Jayson Hunnel of Greenstone Homes & Co-Chair Phil Folyer of Morse Western Homes. The commitment to the Fall Festival of Homes by these members have been extraordinary as they work towards putting on the most professional home show in Spokane County bringing the dream of homeownership to life for everyone with homes in every price range, in every neighborhood. But the final applause truly belongs to the builders and their suppliers who have stepped up to build in this year’s show – without them, we would not be the largest in the Inland Northwest, we would not be offering the community such a grand variety of stunning homes to choose from, and we would not be showing off the strength still found in the Spokane Community from our members who continue to fight for the American Dream of Homeownership! Don’t miss this annual event and seeing the finest in new construction by some of our very own builders! The 2010 Fall Festival of Homes is proudly presented by Pro-Build for the 3rd year in a row!

APPRENTICESHIP: It Makes Good Buisness Sense “Why should I consider the SHBA Apprenticeship and

Training Program” you ask. It all comes down to a willingness to invest in your most valuable resource – your employees. Training apprentices is one of the best and only ways to gain a full crew of ‘journeyman’ carpenters. If you empower your employees through training, you will see direct benefits. Almost 80% of jobs now require some postsecondary education and training. Over 62% of new jobs require on-the-job learning and experience. That approach, coupled with occupation-specific instruction, represents the defining principles of Apprenticeship. Apprenticeship is the oldest known form of skills training in which craftsmen throughout the ages have passed their skills along to their successors, thereby preserving the arts of one generation for the edification of the next. The competent and experienced journeyperson is the repository of the skills of their craft. And, without the willingness to transmit that knowledge on to others it would be practically impossible to train the next generation of skilled men and women. Apprenticeship is a proven strategy that combines both on-the-job (OJT) learning with related classroom instruction. It is an excellent training model for quickly getting new employees up to speed and maximizing the skills of your current workforce. The person who wants to serve an apprenticeship is one who is willing to make a commitment to their career and to your company. Apprenticeship allows individuals to learn, work, earn and get qualified, all at the same time. It is an efficient and cost-effective system that can help your business become more productive. By combining on-the-job training and related classroom instruction, you grow skilled workers that allow you to keep pace with changing workforce dynamics. And, today’s competitive industry requires employees that can perform technical tasks, exercise good judgment and possess strong work ethics. Formed 30 years ago to provide educational opportunities to individuals in the residential construction field,


Builders Overview

the SHBA Apprenticeship & Training Program maintains a focused commitment on developing and promoting residential construction careers through education and training. The program educates workers already in the field, young men and women just beginning their construction careers, and youth just forming their ideas about specific careers and work. The SHBA sponsors an 8,000 hour on-the-job training program that provides motivated men and women the opportunity to learn the residential carpentry trade by working in the field under the supervision of a skilled craftsman. In addition to receiving skill training on the job, our apprentices are provided with 576 hours of trade related classroom instruction that produces competency and pride that lead to true craftsmanship. Our instructors are comprised of a very motivated and innovative staff that are committed and dedicated to the success of their students. Their role is to professionally undertake managing the learning process of Residential Carpentry apprenticeship students and to ensure the students achieve their learning objectives to the maximum of their potential. Further responsibilities include, utilizing available resources, methods, techniques and strategies, to ensure student success and working collaboratively with colleagues to create a learning environment which is educationally sound, technically supported and innovative. But, apprenticeship training requires a commitment by both the employer and the apprentice. The employer commits to providing the work experience and the wages for learning the occupation; the apprentice commits to learning the occupation and becoming a valued employee who contributes to the overall strength of the company. The result is a skilled craft worker with industry-driven training and an employer with a competitive edge. Employers, who participate in apprenticeship training, build trained and skilled employees ensuring the availability of a strong labor force and sustainable growth and success of their business. A trained, productive staff means fewer mistakes, less wastage and lower unit costs. The completion of an apprenticeship program results in highly trained professionals who contribute noticeably to your bottom line and ensures a higher level of quality production and productivity. Their knowledge, skills and “hands on” experience enable them to develop a thorough understanding of your business needs and how best to meet them. The SHBA Apprenticeship Program has provided training

to hundreds of individuals in the trade and has opened up scores of career and business opportunities that would otherwise have been unattainable. Many of these individuals have used the program to train to journey level status and some have even gone on to establish companies of their own and are now SHBA members. Whether you have employees who are just beginning their career, employees that want to grow and develop their skills to keep up with new technology and industry practices, or if you know of an individual who likes the challenge of learning a new skill, has a good aptitude, and would like to earn while they learn, then SHBA’s Apprenticeship and Training program would be for them. Registration for the 2010-2011 school year is currently underway. Applications for entrance into the program will to be accepted through the month of September. Credit for prior experience in the trade and/or technical schooling can be granted to individuals upon application to the program. Take the first step and find out more about how you can make the apprenticeship training process work for you. For more information on this exciting career opportunity, contact Kim at 532-4990.

This past Fourth of July weekend Tom Stewart, one of our longtime members and Board Member, was severely injured in an unfortunate boating accident. Tom is now out of the hospital and has been transferred to St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Center where he is undergoing physical therapy and will hopefully return home soon. Because of sustained injuries, a ramp was required for access to Tom’s home in Newman Lake. Longtime Remodelers Council member Arne Weinman of First Team Construction and SHBA Board member Leonard Terzenbach of Bell-Anderson Insurance, generously donated labor and funds to complete the ramp project for Tom.  Without reserve for themselves, Arne and Leonard did a remarkable and selfless deed in helping out one of our own in their time of need. The actions of these two individuals reflected great credit upon themselves, the Remodeler’s Council, and the Spokane Home Builders Association. Please take a minute of your day to thank them should your time allow. This is a great example of the impact that our Remodelers Council service projects have in our community and the character of our council members and general membership spirit.  The Remodelers Council applauds Arne and Leonard for their generosity and wishes Tom a quick recovery.

One of the primary goals of the Remodeler’s Council is to actively participate in community projects and help our area’s residents in need. In addition to giving the community a positive view of our industry, the Remodelers Council has a crucial impact on our local businesses. If your business is affected or involved with the remodeling industry in any way, this Council has tremendous opportunity for you.  Not only are industry wide concerns and regulations discussed, but we also entertain other topics such as politics affecting your business or invite local, highly regarded business people in the Spokane area speak to us regularly about a diversity of useful information. This year, the Remodelers Council has been essential to update our members on major new hurdles for remodeling contractors, specifically the EPA mandated Lead RRP Rule, as well as other newly revealed building codes as applicable to remodelers.  Our dual membership with the NAHB Remodelers allows us a national voice to influence the EPA as to its effects on small business.  The Council has always been, and still is, member driven and member focused.  As I continue to watch the trends of remodeling permits continually on the rise for the last 2 years and, along with it, the tidal wave of new laws regulating this specific industry, it proves that this Council is more valuable now than ever.  Networking potential for your business is excellent, no matter how much or how little remodeling you do or are involved with. I invite you to come to a Council meeting and join suppliers, associates, and builders who have come together to make their businesses stronger to face the remodeling challenges ahead.  For more information on the Council please give me a call at 509-230-4487 or email  For a complete schedule of council meeting is on the web at under Remodelers Council.
