My Candidate Statement for the Columbia Council

I love Columbia and I am proud to live here with my family. My wife and I plan to raise our children here because we embrace Columbia values–civility, acceptance, and community.

I have served Long Reach as a volunteer since 2003. My service as chairman of the Budget Committee has ensured the long term stability of the CA. I have served on the Art Center Advisory Board supporting the cultural heart of Columbia. I have worked on many issues with the Village Board and volunteer yearly for the Long Reach Country Fair. I have also served on a number of state and local advisory committees.

The CA and Long Reach face a number of challenges. I believe that my experience and commitment to the village has prepared me to help the organization meet these challenges. I look forward to continue serving Long Reach.
