WHY IS HE RUNNING Our current representatives haven’t delivered the jobs and economic prosperity that they promised. It’s time for things to change. If we want our community to grow, we need leadership that works for the people, not for special interests. Politicians and people say that Gadsden is a great place to retire. My wife and I also think this is an even better place to raise a family – but we’re concerned for our future, and for our children’s future. We want the children of our district to grow up with good schools, have good paying jobs, and be proud of their towns. We want the people of our community to have a say in what happens here. If elected, I will have an open door policy and make sure their ideas and concerns are heard. Five years ago, I never would have thought I’d run for office, but Gadsden is my home and this community is my family. We need things to change if want future generations to have a good life here. We need leaders in Montgomery who will fund education programs and bring jobs back to our district. I want to stand up for our district and make it a great place to live for generations to come.
