Published: Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 03:54 PM.

I served three years on Columbia-Tusculum Community Council in a Cincinnati, Ohio community. I am familiar with Robert's Rules of Order. I currently serve on the city of Crestview Board of Adjustment.

Other education/experience: I am a graduate of Anderson High School, Cincinnati, Ohio. I attended University of Cincinnati Evening College, Industrial Management. I served in the Marine Reserves. I have held a private pilot single engine land certificate since 1990.

Reason you seek this position: I have a desire to serve to help improve the quality of life experience here in Crestview for all citizens.

Biggest issue this position faces and how you plan to address it: I will encourage greater citizen turnout at council meetings, including newer arrivals to Crestview who are concentrated in Precinct 2.

Working together, we can make Crestview the city we are all proud to call home.
