Why should voters elect you?

"I am the only candidate who was raised here, attended our public schools, served in the United States armed forces and who truly understands legislation."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"The most pressing problem in Anne Arundel County is funding the expensive capital investments in our schools, roads, structured parking and other infrastructure that will be required to accommodate the growth at Fort Meade and NSA. Anne Arundel County must commit adequate funds to develop modern sewage and water systems, to improve the physical state of several West County schools, to increase our public safety presence around Fort Meade and NSA and to create a seamless transportation network to attract economic development in West County, which, in turn, will provide the tax base for the required infrastructure."
