About Me:

· Resident of East Ridge for 44 years.

· Retired General Contractor with over 49 years experience in construction and development.

· Previous business owner in East Ridge.

· Retired Lieutenant from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department.

· Served on several boards and committees in the construction industry as well as my church.


As a candidate for City Council I will:

· Work to return the voice of the citizens to the council

· Make the fire and police departments a top priority

· Work to capitalize on the Boarder Region Act so that we may bring meaningful development to the underperforming parts of our city as well as to the entire city.

· I will have a strong focus on revitalizing “Upper” East Ridge and bringing new business to that side of the city.

· I will spread focus to our entire city rather than exclusively focusing on Camp Jordan and Exit 1.
