I was born and raised in Marion, Virginia. I went through school in Marion and attended college at Virginia Tech. After a long, successful career with the U.S. Forest Service which included time spent as a law enforcement officer, I founded my own real estate appraisal business. Now I feel it’s time I use my education, experience, and skills on behalf of my fellow citizens.
As a town council member and throughout my varied background and experience in my federal career, I have developed a wide knowledge base that has helped me understand and appreciate many of the challenges of public service. I place a strong emphasis in creating positive change especially when change can improve a situation or program. During my federal career and now as a town council member, I strive to make everything work better and more efficiently.
I am a strong supporter of the U.S. and Commonwealth constitutions, our educators, our first responders, and law enforcement officers. I have experience in law enforcement and know how tough the job can be. I have served on the Marion Town Council from 2010 through the present and have worked hard make it a better place to live. Now I want to go to Richmond and work just as hard for everybody in District 6.
I want and will appreciate your vote on November 5th.
