I will work to make sure the township board makes decisions that are financially prudent, equitable transparent. Taxpayers should make decisions that directly impact them. I also believe that government should respect the intelligence of taxpayers and provide open communications, so they can make informed decisions and so elected officials can honestly represent them. With all of the media available now, there is no reason why residents should not be well informed about all decisions that impact them.

The reason I think people should vote for me is because Tyrone Township has been my home for 41 years. I want to make it better than it already is by keeping open communication with citizens, listening to their concerns and ideas. Voting on issues that is best for the township and my fellow residents.

Residency: Tyrone Township
I would like to thank the Tyrone Township voters for their support in the primary election. I am proud to be included in a group of very qualified individuals running for the office of trustee in November. My experience as an attorney and advisor to businesses across the state makes me uniquely qualified for this position. I have significant knowledge gained from representing clients on both sides of real property disputes, tax disputes, zoning issues, and other matters, which relate directly to township business. I will use this knowledge to help the Board craft decisions, which protect the interests of all involved while avoiding future problems and unintended consequences. My wife and I are lucky to call Tyrone Township home, and I could not ask for a better place to raise our three children. I am looking forward to giving back to the community as a trustee.
