We should all be willing to contribute our time and best effort toward the well being of the community in which we live, work, and play. Hernando is a beautiful small city undergoing rapid growth and change; thus, we need fresh ideas to address the issues facing us. I pledge to use my life experiences to bring a positive, respectful, transparent, and cooperative approach to addressing the problems facing our city so that we can keep our city safe, desirable, and a wonderful place to live!
Life experiences include the personal and professional aspects of life. My family (my wonderful wife and son) and I have lived in Hernando for 20 years, and we have been active in the community. Our son played baseball within the park leagues, and I coached his soccer teams for several years at SBEC. We have been part of the Hernando Interfaith and Foodbank for several years, Veterans Day Parade committee members, and we love our church, Parkway Baptist Church. My education with a Bachelor's degree in Government and a Master's degree in Leadership and my experience as an Officer in the US Army Reserves provide a sound basis for leadership as the Alderman for Ward 6. I understand how government works and that it works best with input from citizens.
I believe that representatives should be citizens and not career politicians. I pledge to listen to all sides of every issue, gather all the relevant facts, research the applicable law, respect different viewpoints, and make decisions in the city's best interest. Also, I believe in maintaining a high level of city services and fostering a strong sense of community, ensuring all of Hernando's citizens' safety, in a balanced approach to development, and in a civil and respectful approach to conducting the people's business.
In closing, I respectfully ask for your vote for Alderman, Ward 6 on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.
