I moved to Daytona Beach five years ago.  Three years ago I decided it was time to step up and get involved.   Since then, I've been a regular at City Commission meetings, redevelopment meetings, and neighborhood meetings.  I've done countless hours of research on CRA spending.  I sit on the Nuisance Abatement Board. I am chairman of the Beachside Neighborhood Watch,  I am a co-founder of Citizens 4 Responsible Development

And now, I would like to be your voice on the City Commission.  I am creative, detail oriented, relentlessly curious, and results-driven.  I believe in making decisions based on facts, with a complete understanding of the issues.  Every day at work, I deal with complex issues as part of a team, solving problems so we can drive to conclusion. 

Our community speaks with one voice at City Hall and that's through the City Commission.  Each zone may have different issues but in the end, it's the vote of the entire Commission that shapes our community.  

 

Your Commissioner needs to be able to understand your issues, needs to be able to understand the complex issues before the Commission, and needs to be able to make fact-based arguments with the passion to persuade.  That's how YOUR voice can shape our community.
