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.
