Why should you be elected
I’m a tested and proven leader with 23 years as Unity Township Trustee, currently in my first term as Columbiana County Commissioner. I have over 20 years of private sector management experience with responsibility of multi-million dollar local company’s. I have a clear understanding of what it takes to be a good decision maker and the dedication required to manage the commissioners position.
Top three priorities
1) Continue the war on drugs and drugs dealers and let them know they not welcome in our County
2) Continue to improve upon our public safety by providing our police, Drug Task Force, and EMS with the resources they need to be effective in their jobs.
3) Continue to provide an environment friendly to business development that will create new jobs
