I have had a passion for public service my entire life, and have already served Cobb in many capacities. After hearing of Bob Ott's retirement, I prayed and spoke at length with my wife and family about running for his seat and continuing in public service. My goal is to keep Cobb County on the right path, maintaining the prosperity that we’ve all experienced and preparing our home for challenges yet to come.
I love this community. I want to ensure that it remains the best place to live, to raise a family, and to educate our children. My 21 years of service in the U.S. Army has only given me more drive to do the best I can for my community.
I am ready to be your voice in our community. As your commissioner, I promise to be attentive and responsive to the needs of District Two.
I look forward to earning your support in the coming months!
