Dunn served as chairman of the Public Works Department. “I was able to get new equipment so that our streets would be better maintained,” he said. “I am also proud to have had the opportunity to be a part of a good team working the mayor and the other council people to bring new industry to the city of Troy such as CGI, Golden Boy, an expanding of Sikorsky, also the state of the art recreation facilities, improvement at Washington State Park, new library, new senior center, also new facilities for the Public Works Department.”

Dunn cited his commitment to service in seeking re-election. “The eight years I have been on the city council I have only missed seven council meetings, at least four of those was due to being out of town on city business. I have returned every phone call and address every concern that was brought to my attention from the citizens if Troy, no matter what district they reside in.”

He pledged to continue that commitment. “If the citizens of District 1 would allow me to serve four more years I would continue to represent them to the best of my ability. I am fully retired my only obligation is God, country and the citizens of Troy, therefore I have plenty of time to take care of the concerns of the citizens of Troy.”
