MEET THE CANDIDATES: 2 challenge Laurel Hill incumbent

Published: Monday, March 4, 2013 at 04:07 PM.

Relevant experience:

I have served four years as a Laurel Hill City Council member. With the exception of my first meeting, I have served the entire four years as chairman.

I currently write all ordinances, resolutions and contracts for the city. I am very familiar with all of Laurel Hill’s ordinances, resolutions and the city charter, Robert’s Rules of Order, Florida Sunshine Law, Florida statutes.

I also conduct a monthly internal audit of all city banking transactions.

Other education/experience: I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Troy University and an associate degree from the Community College of the Air Force. Having served 39 years in the U.S. Civil Service and 38 years in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, I have dedicated my entire adult life to public service.

Reason you seek this position: I’m running because it’s imperative that the city continues to have oversight of the financial management program, and my experience can ensure this happens.

Voters deserve wise decisions for the use of their tax money. During my last three years as council chairman, our financial situation has gone from almost broke to having enough savings to start overlay of some streets in the near future.
