Why should voters choose you in this election? As a resident of Lexington County for more than 50 years, I am extremely invested in the future of this community. My children have grown up here and now my grandchildren are doing the same. I have witnessed a small, rural town grow into a booming, bustling, populace that is an exciting place to live and work. Growth should facilitate economic stability and prosperity for the citizens and businesses in Lexington County.

I believe county council is in need of a new perspective to ensure decisions are made for the right reasons, in the best interest of all - not the special interests of some. Taxes are our investment in the future but must be used discerningly in order to be limited. Many of the other candidates are businessmen, but as a business owner in Lexington County for the past 12 years, my family and my company have subsisted by budgeting, sacrificing and making the most of every precious dollar. It is not an easy task, but I feel I bring common sense perspective and conscientious responsibility to the table. With proper leadership, the evolution of Lexington County can provide for lower taxes, less government, and opportunity for all who choose to reside and do business here. My decision to run for public office stems from one simple motivation – believing I can make a difference!
