Reasons for runningAs a lifelong resident, I believe that Austintown is moving forward, and I want to represent our community with new, current, and honest leadership. I want to be the voice of the residents in Austintown, not a puppet of other interests who want to advance their hidden agendas by using the good old boy system. I'm running as a public servant, business man, and more importantly a father of future generations.
Priorities Bring new business and job growth to our township. Ensure our infrastructure is up to date with all the new development coming to our area. Continue to ensure our budget is balanced and finish in the black. Utilize our parks to facilitate more family oriented activities throughout the year. Ensure the racino monies are managed properly.
QualificationsAs a law enforcement officer I have an understanding of what it is like to serve the public, and have done so for eighteen years. Additionally, I have the management skills which have enabled me to run my business. These experiences have given me the integrity, character, and values of which I believe is integral for a Trustee position in Austintown Township.
Positions on the issues I am strongly against the JEDD (Joint Economic Development District). I support economic growth and development, which will bring jobs to our community.
