Raised in the district as a hardworking, common sense leader, I believe in the importance of listening, thinking independently, executing on a “Citizens First” platform that puts people before politicians and parties and taking actions that cause positive results for people! I understand servant leadership and know it will take a strong, passionate voice to make things happen in Harrisburg on behalf of you and your family.
I was baptized and attended Sunday School at Bethany Wesleyan Church in Lehigh Township, grew up in Northampton Borough, valued my experience in scouting, sports, and coaching and graduated from Kutztown University with a B.S. in Business Administration. I currently live in Slatington Borough where I serve my community as Council Vice President, and chairing the Human & Community Services Committee.
I have experience in the financial services, public health sectors and working for AARP and seniors. As a self-employed business owner, I'm an advocate for small businesses, our hardworking-class employees, community revitalization and economic expansion that creates jobs, raises property values and reduces increasing tax burdens and I believe we should be working together to create communities we love.
I'm proud of my work as the Borough’s representative to the Northern Lehigh County Region’s Multi-municipal Comprehensive Plan Committee working for smart neighborhood growth solutions and curbing reckless warehouse and over-development, and proud as a volunteer on the Lehigh County Blight Task Force to address blight and works with the Northern Lehigh Recreation Authority, D&L Trail and Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce to promote recreational enhancements, revitalization and economic development across both counties.
I believe it is my experience working with these leaders across the district, regardless of political affiliations, to accomplish our neighborhood goals that really sets myself apart from my too-far-right opponent that can't inspire the cooperation needed to achieve effectiveness in Harrisburg. Our time is now to elect a strong, passionate and proven community leader to put citizen’s interests above all else, and it would be an honor to represent our district.
