Education University of Cincinnati - Bachelors degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering
Occupation Civil Engineer/ Project Manager Miami University City Council Member City of Harrison, OH
Experience Harrison City Council, 2016-2017 City of Harrison Board of Zoning Appeals, 2015
Endorsements Hamilton County Republican Party
Political Philosophy As a fiscally conservative Republican it is my goal to maintain a high level of service to the Residents of the City of Harrison while maintaining a balanced budget. We have been able to achieve this during my two years on council. I am a strong proponent of maintaining infrastructure and utilizing the resources available to us to lessen the impact of improvements on our Residents.
I feel that my intimate knowledge of the history of the area coupled with my education and industry experience as a Civil Engineer and construction project manager make me a valuable asset to the City of Harrison, and to the committees that I chair.
My first priority over the next four years is to maintain a balanced budget that allows the city to keep all public safety departments at full staffing. My second priority is as chairman of the utilities committee to facilitate the softening of the city's water supply. My third priority as chair of the streets committee will be prioritizing road construction projects for the next 4 years based on condition and traffic volume to ensure that we have a clear working list going into the future.

Experience For the past 13 years, I have served as the lead volunteer with the Upward Sports Ministry at Legacy Christian Church. I have been an active supporter of keeping the Doug Dunaway Motocross and ATV park open as a valuable, unique recreation asset.
Political Philosophy At my core I am fiscally responsible and always willing to listen to all sides of the debate.

The primary issue that I will focus on is pursuing grant funding for recreational activities for the city. Specifically, I would apply for a Recreational Trails Program grant that would provide funding to improve and maintain the trails at the community center, the new river park and the Motocross and ATV park.

Our current mayor and council have done a great job at ensuring that we have the finest emergency services and quality roads and public services. I will work to continue this effort.

Occupation I am in my 31st year of teaching elementary students. I also serve as the Clerk of Council for the City of Harrison for the past 20 plus years.
Experience Over the past 20 plus years I have been involved in numerous committees with the City of Harrison. I have served twice on the Charter Review Committee, as well as the city's Comprehensive Plan and a sub-committee for the Comprehensive Master.
Endorsements I have not asked for any endorsements.
Political Philosophy I have never belonged to a political party. I choose my local, state, and federal officials by what the person stands for and not what party they belong to. I believe elected officials should govern so that they can assist in helping to bring out the best in there citizens and their community by working to legislate strict, but fair ordinances and resolutions in bringing about a safe, clean, and productive environment that helps the community be a better place to live and grow.
I have been listening for over 20 years at Harrison City Council meetings. I have worked with 4 mayors and numerous council members and read thousands of city documents. I believe it is my time to finally comment and question issues facing our city
My 3 top priorities are: 1) Bringing new industries and good jobs into the city to keep up with the growth of the residential areas. I think it is important that people live where they work so they have more opportunities to stay connected to their city. 2) I would like to see a stronger enforcement and/or amending of our city ordinances in keeping the city clean and attractive for our residents and visitors. 3) Help all city departments be the best and most productive they can be.
