I am married to my wonderful wife Kathy. We have two daughters and three grandchildren. I retired from the Baltimore County Fire Department after a thirty-year career and has been involved with fire and emergency services in Carroll Carroll since 1976.
Prior to my election in 2014, I served on numerous committees including Carroll 2030 and have been involved in many aspects of local government. I was also a small business owner since 1983 up until receiving your vote and becoming your commissioner.
Time continues to fly. The June elections will be here before you know it. I will continue to provide the county with effective leadership. Integrity, accountability, honesty, open communication, collaboration and engaging people to reach common goals are cornerstones of my leadership. I will continue to protect the needs of all citizens and maintain excellent public safety, infrastructure, and excellent public education in a conservative and fiscally responsible manner. I understand that many agencies and non-profits are underfunded and will continue to work with the other commissioners to reach common goals and do what is best for our county. Together we can continue to make it happen. Please continue to support my campaign by talking with everyone you can. I would love to hear from you with your thoughts on how we can make Our County A Better Place To Live For You and Your Family.
