Why should voters choose you in this election?

As a councilman, I have been fiscally responsible. There has been no millage increase for 10 years and set a budget for no tax increase. I will continue to work hard to keep taxes low.

I will support items to enhance quality of life for Lee County residents. I will continue to support education in the county and recreational activities through Lee County Parks & Recreation Department.
