My Goals

“I work for you.”

“Greg and I work together as a team to do our best to look after the concerns, requests and problems of our Ward Three constituents.”

“I was elected in 2003 because I promised to fight tax increases. I have done my best to continue to fight to keep property taxes as low as possible, while continuing to provide services to city residents.”
