As a Kingston Township Trustee for the past 8 years, I have been, and will continue to be, fully engaged in all the issues of the Township. I represent all township residents and work closely with many other elected officials and agencies pursuing the interests of our residents. I am the President of the Delaware County Township Association. I have been Treasurer of the Delaware County Local Government Association. I am a member of Big Walnut School District’s Economic Development and Facilities Planning Committees. In January, 2017 I was recognized by the Ohio Township Association’s Leadership Academy.

I have more than 25 years of experience in construction/project management. This is the perfect fit for the primary responsibilities of townships in Ohio. As a longtime resident of Kingston Township I am not only aware of the issues, but of the history behind the issues.
With the construction of the outlet mall, a major subdivision building out, and another getting ready to build out, traffic is a major challenge for all of Kingston Township. There is a proposed traffic circle at SR 61 and Wilson Road that many are questioning. I will continue to work with ODOT, the County Engineer and Developers, towards resolving these issues, while protecting our residents.

Upgrading utilities continues to be another challenge in our township. In my tenure, natural gas has been introduced and distribution areas have been expanded 3 times. Time-Warner has expanded services and service area. Other high speed internet providers are now available.

A concern for many is the condition of our present township hall. I have been working hard with architects and contractors to develop a simple low cost township hall on land presently owned by the township. What has been proposed will solve this problem without raising taxes.
My hope for Kingston Township is the same as other residents. That being, well controlled growth. Protecting the residential and agricultural character of our neighborhoods is my highest priority. I would like to thank all Kingston Township residents for allowing me to serve them for the past 8 years. Thank you.
