Over the last year as I stepped back from elected office and spent more time with my family and in my business, my desire to serve the people of this community has not diminished. My desire to serve your interests has grown stronger. I am running for the office of Cumberland County Commissioner in one of the three District 2 seats.
Now more than ever we need leaders solely focused on strengthening our community not dividing it and ensuring that everyone has opportunities for a better life. I have always believed in deeds not words and I hope my consistent actions over my time as both a city councilman and state senator have proven that I am the leader who will continue to put the people of this community first over the political games we many times see play out. I will deliver results not promises.
Over the next several years our community will make major investments in moving forward and we need steady, experienced leadership. Experience matters now more than ever and I will bring my state and local level experience to the board of commissioners at a time when two long-term incumbents have announced not to seek another term.
I will continue to champion issues like clean water, infrastructure growth, mental health, education, veterans, quality of life, and ensuring that people have better opportunities overall. I have delivered for our community in these areas in previous elected positions and will deliver again as your county commissioner.
I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get back to work for you. I love this community and want to help build a life for our children to have opportunities to come home to, where they can live and raise their own future families. I am committed to always doing what is best for our community, being respectful of others even when we disagree and focused on solutions even when they are difficult.
