Welcome! Thank you for dropping by my page to learn a little more about me, my campaign, and how you can get involved to make a difference. I’m finishing my first term on the County Commission, and I am happy with much of the work that has been done. We have hired a new County Manager, and a new Tax Assessor, we have worked on fixing the botched 2011 revaluation, and we have positioned ourselves to be on firm financial footing. But there is still more work to be done. We need to work harder at balancing our needs and wants; we have to keep our tax rate affordable so we are competitive with the surrounding counties for business and job growth; and we need strong, pragmatic leadership for the future. Please take a few minutes to look around this website, and feel free to contact me with any questions. Lastly, I’d like to ask for your vote on Tuesday, November 4th for Mecklenburg County Commission District 5. Thank you!
