CRIME

 

Crime is a serious matter to me.  6 years ago my home was broken into while my wife and I were asleep. I know how it feels to be the victim of a crime.

 

I have and will continue to work with the administration, law enforcement and the community to make District 1 a safer place to live, work, and for our children to play.

LET'S CONTINUE THE PROGRESS

There is still so much we can accomplish together to continue progress in our community. The fight goes on and I will lead the effort to continue the important work of developing our community.

 

I will work with the administration, developers, property owners and the community to find solutions to the issues we face for District 1. I know that we can continue to change the landscape of our community for a better tomorrow.
