What is your campaign platform?

I look forward to guiding Belville past its current legal matters so it may continue on its path of slow and responsible growth.

What makes you qualified to serve as a Commissioner?

I was appointed in 2018, so the work has just begun. Our young family has been living in
Belville for nearly 4 years, and plans to do so for many, many more. I am an attorney and
businessman and I hope my experience can continue to be an asset to the town moving
forward.

What are the top three issues Belville is facing right now and what’s your position on these issues?

Primarily we need to resolve the two lawsuits that predate my appointment to the
Commission, once this is achieved we can get back on track toward responsible and
reasonable growth for our town.

Do you agree with how 2017 Belville Commissioners and outgoing H2GO Commissioners orchestrated the transfer outside of public review or knowledge? Why or why not?
