First Responder Support: The firefighters and police of Dublin need support to keep our community safe. I will work with neighboring jurisdictions, as well as county and state officials to ensure Dublin’s first responders receive the proper funding needed to adequately perform their duties.

Improved Infrastructure and Responsible Growth: Protecting Dublin’s environment is essential to the health and well being of all of it’s citizens. I will not support any proposals that may be harmful to our public areas. I will support local clean up projects, and monitor road construction to ensure that it will not have negative long lasting effects.

Transparency: I will reach out to every member of the community to hear their thoughts and ideals, and keep everyone in the loop on any potential business that may affect them. My contact info will be public at all times, and I urge people to reach out.
I understand what it means to struggle, what it means to work hard, and I believe we need elected officials that understand these struggles. I want to be the person that the people of Dublin can turn to for support, no matter the reason. I want to help unlock Dublin’s full potential and propel it into the next generation. Dublin may be a small community, but it embodies the diversity and passion that makes this country so great. I want to give Dublin a fresh voice in the Borough Council, a voice full of new ideas that we can get excited about. But of course, I won’t be doing it alone, because I will simply be the voice powered by the people.
In my years of service in the military, I’ve worked with people from all walks of life, all in the pursuit of the common good. We put aside our differences to achieve something greater than ourselves, and as a council person, I will do just that. In order to do what’s best for the community, we need to leave political affiliations at the door, and come together to do what’s right.

Between my military and public safety training, I’ve had my fair share of stressful situations. As a council person, I will channel the discipline and pride that training instilled in me. In the military we’re taught that one small mistake could be catastrophic, and you need to ensure that you pay complete attention to directions and procedures, and I believe that training will assist me in making public policy decisions.
