Qualifications for Office As a Hamilton Twp. native I have both an understanding and a passion for this township. My background as a government inspector for 30 years and now as an executive director of a non-profit I have an unique combination of understanding of the role and responsibilities of government as well as the needs for fiscal frugality and wise management in day to day operations of an organization.
This is a great place to live with low municipal taxes and a high quality of life. To maintain that we will need to make wise and strategic decisions in the future. We can and should communicate better with our residents on a number of issues. My campaign experience has revealed many citizens want to hear more about the good things happening in this township and be more informed, which will in turn lead to an increased efficiency in our services to residents.

Qualifications for Office My history of service is what defines and qualifies me. I served overseas during Operation Desert Storm in the US Army. I returned to serve in local law enforcement for 25 years before retiring as a detective. The past 12 years, I have served as a Stroudsburg School Board Director.
As a lifelong resident of Hamilton, I have seen the benefits that come from strong and consistent leadership. I want to continue this tradition while realizing that our community is changing. Voices of old timers as well as newcomers need to be heard. Real time reaction and response is key.
