A Leader We Need. A Record We Can Trust.

From my years on the front-lines of law enforcement to my time on the Acworth City Council,
I have always been committed to giving back to my community. I look forward to now taking my record
and experience to the County Commission to stand up for interests of the people of West Cobb.

Great things are happening in Cobb, and I am passionate about seeing our success continue. In order
to continue our success, we need a leader we can trust. I have spent years serving our families—from
my time in the Marines, to the front lines of law enforcement to my time on the Acworth City Council.
I am running to take experience to the County Commission to stand up for the interests of the people
of District 1 and ensure that Cobb County’s success continues.

On the Acworth City Council:

  • I have had a conservative record of cutting taxes.
  • I have been an avid supporter of public safety.
  • I have led efforts to grow our economy by promoting smart economic growth while
    protecting our neighborhoods and preserving our quality of life.

I plan to take my conservative record to the County Commission. When elected, I will:

  • Make public safety our top priority
  • Push for reforms that lower taxes
  • Be a strong advocate for smart growth that creates jobs and protects our quality of life
  • Ensure the Braves coming to Cobb is a success
To accomplish these things, we must elect a leader that doesn’t need
training with the experience of working collaboratively with others.
We cannot afford to go back to the leadership of the past.


My leadership qualities have assisted in creating effective working relationships between the
citizens of Acworth, and the Acworth Police Department as Public Safety Chairman. As an
ardent supporter of community policing services and policy, I have been in the forefront of
addressing public safety issues. I plan to continue my support of Public Safety as a Cobb
County Commissioner. I am totally dedicated to the County and its future and I believe it is
essential that the Board of Commssioners not only bring experience, but a dedication to the
future of Cobb County.

As a strong proponent of quality economic development that I believe will build a broad and balanced tax base in order to support the best
services for the citizens of Cobb.

I am a proactive proponent for the development and enhancement of the Cobb’s parks and recreational facilities that are designed to meet
the growing needs of city residents of all ages which includes all types of recreation including the first ever “Special Needs” field in
Northwest Georgia.

I firmly believe that we must become servant leaders as God intended us to do and that we cannot be an island unto ourselves, but serve all
citizens and our neighbors.
