Fiscally Conservative

Our county has done a good job of keeping its fiscal house in order. We need to ensure vigilance to maintain smart management of taxpayer funds. In general, our County should avoid incurring new debt. But, we should never jeopardize our AAA bond rating by poorly managing our existing liabilities. Politics should never supersede smart policy on the Kent County Board of Commissioners.


The scientific evidence abundantly supports valuing and promoting life from conception to natural death. While not often directly involved in life specific issues, members of the county board should have a perspective grounded in principled thinking about core ethical issues. I am the only candidate in the race endorsed by Right to Life.

Tech Savvy

Obamacare is a debacle for many reasons. It also exposed the fact that our government has too few representatives of a 21st-century technology perspective (think As a Product Manager for a software company, I have the experience to give our county valuable insights in technology and software decision making.


I have been active in the political process for 15 years. Throughout that time I have participated in campaigns for local candidates. I have also been involved in many efforts with Citizens for Traditional Values and Right to Life.
