Accountability & Fiscal Responsibility


It was my privilege to attend an open house for Senator Sandra O'Brian last night and meet many of the newly elected Trustees from Geauga County!

First and foremost I would like to thank my wife, Beverly. She has always supported me in everything I have been involved with over the years. Second, my family, they are always by my side and encourage and support me in any anything I have done or venture to do. I would also like to thank the residents of Hambden Township for their encouragement, support and faith in me during this election. I truly appreciate and treasure living in such a supportive and caring community.

 Thank you again for your vote and trust in my ability to be a productive Hambden Township Trustee. I will work hard to successfully serve the residents of Hambden Township in this new role and will work closely with the other Trustees to create positive outcomes. I have listened to many concerns over numerous issues in the Township and I will address them on a one by one basis.  You all have my sincerest Thank you.
