CIVIC LEADERSHIP I served four years on the Clearwater Municipal Code Enforcement Board in 1999. I was elected in 2004 to the Clearwater Downtown Development Board, and served as Chairman for seven years. I am currently a Board member and past President of the Clearwater Historical Society, past Vice-President of Prospect Towers, past member of the Clearwater Charter Review Committee, Clearwater Business Task Force and I currently serve on the Clearwater Community Development Board, I serve as Vice-President of Island Estates Civic Association, serve as Board member of Senior Citizens Services, Inc. and serve as a Board member of the Clearwater Downtown Partnership, Inc.. At age 67, I am an active 55-year member of First United Methodist Church of Clearwater and a member of the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce.
BUSINESS I am a retired Building Contractor who owned a successful design/ build remodeling company based in Clearwater for over 36 years. My wife and I own beach vacation properties on Clearwater Beach.
EXPERIENCE I bring decades of experience in working with local organizations in Clearwater’s private and public sectors. I understand how our City Government works and what is needed to provide a high quality of life for all our citizens.
MY VALUES Being homegrown gives me a special insight into public service in Clearwater. I’ve seen Clearwater grow from a small community in the 1950’s to what it is today. We have a beautiful City with the potential to become the best City in Florida. As our economy strengthens, planning a fertile environment for economic growth is essential. There are many pieces to the puzzle that will make this happen. Tourism dollars and increased property values are needed to drive more Municipal services back to our residents.
A practical idealist to the core, I believe principles and values are the foundations of good governance and a meaningful part of civic leadership. In fact, we need those values today in public service more than ever. We need to continue to strive to meet goals that have already been set in motion. I want to contribute to the vision and strategic mission that directs Clearwater’s future.
