As a Pasco County Native, I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to be a part of this community. Working in various family-owned businesses, from citrus, transportation to funeral homes, real estate, and ranching, I have had over 40 years of management experience. Raising five children, being involved in various activities, I have witnessed many changes that have taken place here.
In 2007, I was appointed to serve on the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) governing board. During my years of volunteer service to this organization, I served as Treasurer, Vice Chairman and Chairman. While working with SWFWMD, I became very aware of the need to streamline processes and make them more efficient.
Having been approached in 2007, and again this past year, by many citizens of Pasco County, I feel the time is now for me to run for the District 1 County Commission seat. A new perspective is needed to deal with the challenges we face ahead. Please allow me the opportunity to work for all of us as your County Commissioner. Together, we can make a difference.
