I have chosen to run for town council for several reasons—first and foremost my love of our town, its people, its school system, and the fact that my professional experience is directly relevant to our town's everyday needs. I feel like it's time to give back and generate a constructive environment that plans for our future versus simply reacting to it. As a professional engineer, my experience in civil and building construction, water and wastewater is an asset that applies to many projects. As a successful entrepreneur and business owner, my ability to manage our town's finances and support the growth of our business districts is an asset. As an LSRP, my knowledge of the environmental arena is an asset in developing contaminated sites on the west side of town. As commissioner of the Moorestown Youth Flag Football League, and a baseball and hockey coach for years, my knowledge of our town's athletic organizations and our open space needs is also a plus. For these reasons, I have elected to throw my hat into the ring and hopefully become a member of what I would like to call the "Moorestown Comeback Team."
