Fort Thomas is truly an outstanding city and we are certainly all blessed to be able to call Fort Thomas our home. Cities like Fort Thomas do not happen by accident. A strong city government, a responsible and caring citizenry, excellent schools and outstanding police and fire departments are hallmarks of any great American city. Fort Thomas has all that and more. I was honored to have been selected from among thirteen other applicants for appointment by the Fort Thomas City Council to complete a vacated 2016 City Council term and I look forward to continuing as a City Council Member in the future.

I have been committed to serving my community since moving to Fort Thomas 20 years ago. I've been fortunate to serve on and lead several committees and boards including eight years on our local School Board, three time member of the School District's Facilities Planning Committee, the Highland High School Athletic Booster Board and The Fort Thomas Education Foundation. My commitment to education is well documented. I've served as chairman of all of these organizations and am very proud of their accomplishments over the past twenty years.

I feel it is imperative for future City Councils to maintain and build upon the tremendous work that has been spearheaded by previous City Councils. The city has never looked better, but as always, we must never rest on past successes. A vibrant Central Business District and Midway area is important to the city's growth. Enhanced recreational opportunities and ongoing infrastructure improvements are areas of future emphasis. I believe a forward thinking City Government is key to maintaining and enhancing our already great city. A community that is standing still is in actuality in danger of going backward in today's world.


This year I will be joining our Mayor, City Administrator, and fellow City Council Members as we set a visionary strategy for the City of Fort Thomas. I'm excited about the coming year and look forward to being a contributing member on the Fort Thomas City Council into the future. Thank you in advance for your consideration during the upcoming City Council election in November.
