I thought I would introduce myself and share some pertinent information with you that will help you learn more about me as a person and a candidate. I hope you will like what you read and learn and tell your friends about me.
I am married to Sharon for 51 years. We have two grown daughters and three grandchildren. We built a home in Antiquity in 2014. I walked across the street to volunteer my time and skills in Town Hall and the rest is history.
I am a retired senior University of North Carolina system administrator, faculty member, and health care professional. I have resided in NC since 1981.
In retirement, like many of you, I am concerned about the quality of life experiences in my community. For 8 years I have dedicated myself to enhancing that quality of life and helping secure the community resources to sustain and grow Cornelius.
Since January 2015, when I became a Commissioner for Parks, Arts, Recreation, and Culture Commission and later it's chair, I have been actively engaged as a citizen appointee on important town committees, professional accreditations, and task forces and distinguished myself in that capacity.
When I am not in and around Town Hall, I frequent almost every neighborhood, on a weekly basis, on my bicycle in promoting Cornelius as a great place to work, live, and play for all who call Cornelius “home”.
I hope you have learned more about me and my aspiration in seeking public office. Please bookmark this website. More information will be forthcoming throughout the year.
I look forward to communicating more with you!
