Why I’m Running
We are all fortunate enough to be neighbors in one of the greatest places to raise a family in the country. I want to support my neighbors and enable their success and happiness as I believe ultimately that is what makes this such a wonderful place to live.
My strategy for strengthening our community as your Town Councilman includes:
- Improving the local business climate and tenancy along the highly visible 44 corridor to stabilize the continual rise in property taxes the Republicans have overseen.
- Pushing for responsible growth and development while embracing a green future.
- Improving our town’s standing as a bike, pedestrian, and recreation friendly town, with a particular focus on bike and pedestrian access to the upcoming Avon town center project.
