I am humbly asking for your help to raise funds for my campaign. Money will be used for the costs of postage, signs and other campaign materials.

I have been a resident of Des Peres for nearly 25 years. My wife, Dotty, and I love the safe, people oriented nature of our city. We have ten children and are committed to the residential nature of the city.

I have previously served the City of Des Peres in several capacities. I was appointed, by Shirley Sweet, to the Public Safety, Recycling and Planning and Zoning committees/commissions. Shirley Sweet also appointed me as 1st Ward Alderman. I then served in that capacity for ten years. I am a retired US Air Force Officer and former middle school teacher. Currently, I am a supervisor for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. I run a program called Troops to Teachers.

I want to be your Alderman because I love our city and want to provide the citizens with a responsive, transparent representative focused on their issues. The pillars of my beliefs are Safety, Service and Growth.

SAFTEY:

I want our city to be safe. These are not just the typical police, fire and EMT issues. Our public safety department is one of the finest in the nation, with fantastic response times and a high degree professionalism and service. We need to also secure our safety from various hazards. Our creek and watershed management, sewer and waste water management and the condition of our roads, bridges and building are included.

SERVICE:

I want to be sure our city can maintain the high level of services we have become accustomed to.  This entails protecting our revenue sources. The economy and other taxing districts all provide a threat. We must be vigilant to all opportunities to increase, enhance and protect ourselves.

I will provide easy access to myself and facilitate your contact to the city and its services.  I want to be transparent. To the greatest extent possible, I will keep you up to date on issues and my thoughts.  

GROWTH:

The city needs to grow and keep pace with the times. Whether it is the issue of annexation, zoning issues or the adoption of new technologies, I will strive to keep Des Peres up to date. Freshening up our parks and recreation services, Adding services that provide value and maintaining our balanced budget and all part of my priorities.
