Welcome to My Website!

  

 

I am running for District 3 commissioner and would appreciate your support.

Having bought our home in PTC in 1987, I have seen a lot of growth and change, both good and bad, in the County as a whole.

Politically, the county has been divided into five districts.  Each has its own distinct characteristics and political leanings.  They range from District 4 being Democrat and majority liberal to District 3 being Republican and more conservative.

Each commissioner reflects their District.  So they are not going to agree on every issue.  Which means as a commissioner I must be willing to state my position on every issue and vote.  It also means all must learn to keep it on the issues and avoid personal conflicts on the dais and in any letters or face book  posts.  Sometimes just voting my conscience and sometimes compromising.
 

On financial issues I always want to know why and how to we pay for it.

 

The big issues we are currently facing in the county are traffic and economic development, meaning jobs.

 

Another very important issue is the animal shelter.  How we treat animals speaks to our character, values and humanity.  So it's far from a trivial issue and is a very important issue for Fayette County.

 

Many in Peachtree City do not realize that while we are about 32% of the county, the city is split between three districts, one, two and three. Being

 

I worked in naval intelligence during Nam, owned a business for 20 years, was a Councilman, Mayor, served on the county Board of Health for four years, and a State Annexation Arbitrator since 2009.


 Fayette County faces a challenging way forward. In example, as shown by renewed efforts pushing regional transit and forcing Fayette County to pay for it, which has been a longstanding issue for me, as has economic development which the Fayette County Development Authority is now giving more attention to industrial growth.

Obviously we need a good working relationship with each city on the Commission.

 

Always a priority is quality of life, including recreation, path connectivity.

 

We must never forget the Commission serves the people of all of Fayette County.
