Occupation: Realtor.

Elected offices/civic activities: Candidate did not respond.

Why should the voters elect you?

"My political theme, 'One Nation Under God,' involves uniting Prince George's County residents to stop 'compartmentalization' of county problems. Instead of using the political strategy of turning older residents against younger residents, or black against whites or the community against the police, I will employ President Bush's idea of encouraging citizens to determine what they can give and not what they can get through improve citizen involvement. For example, I will work to restore the right of voters to elect our Board of Education, promote a school voucher program, public safety using community policing using non-lethal methods and efficient spending."

What would you like the voters to know about you?

"I am a father and grandfather, married 35 years, believing many social problems can be solved promoting the traditional family with father and mother."
