The strength of our community comes from many sources. One important element of a strong community is good governance. The impact of local government is visible every day in the quality of services we receive. I have been pleased to contribute to that long tradition of good governance in Cheverly while serving the residents of Ward 3 for the past four years. I’ve paid particular attention to strengthening our community through efforts to improve deteriorating areas immediately adjacent to Cheverly, ongoing
attention to code enforcement, support for our strong public safety and public works programs and attention to fiscal responsibility. I have also worked to improve communication between the Town and its residents. Through my efforts, Cheverly is about to sign a contract to improve the quality of the Town website. I have also worked hard to help constituents with individual problems, including issues involving Town services. And I have kept interested Ward 3 residents up-to-date with an email list to homes in my Ward.
I have lived in Cheverly on Parkway across from Tot (Gast) Park with my wife Madeleine since 1978. Our two children were born and raised here. Much has changed since we first moved here, but a strong sense of community has been a constant throughout. Prior to my time on Council, I was active in the Town for many years. I co-founded and chaired the Cheverly Environmental Committee (CEC) (1989-92), working closely with Town officials to establish Cheverly's successful curbside recycling program and other initiatives. From 1986-89 I served on and chaired the Cheverly Development Committee. In 1994-5, I established the Gast Park Playground Committee to address play equipment needs in the park. I currently work for the Office for Civil Rights at HHS. I have extensive management background and practical experience in budget, computer technology
and policy development. I graduated from the University of Michigan, with a B.S. and M.A. in Mathematics. I ask for your support to continue to serve the residents of Ward 3 and the Town as we face the challenges ahead.
