I have a singular focus politically, that is Clarksville.
For that reason I've not run for any other county or state offices.
I am here for Clarksville and the citizens of Clarksville.
In 2015, after much thought and deliberation, I decided to seek a seat at the table of the Clarksville Town Council At-Large. Following a 10 vote loss in the Democratic primary that May I determined not to sit down and shut up but rather get busy and go to work preparing for the 2019 election. I was determined to be prepared, informed, and already serving Clarksville when the 2019 election season opened. I've listened to the people of Clarksville and helped whenever allowed.
I have attended a great many Council meetings over the past 4 years, attended and been actively involved in public hearings, public planning, and public work sessions. Additionally, I attend Town Council work session meetings and have been very active, informed, and involved in the community.
I am the Immediate Past President of the Rotary Club of Clarksville, and the Clarksville Historical Society past President. I, along with the board, helped lead the Clarksville Historical Society through the 501(c)3 process and their incorporation after the Town Council kicked them, the Sister Cities and Clarksville Beautification Committee to the curb. Ultimately we adopted the Clarksville Beautification Committee into the Historical Society.
Through my work with the Clarksville Historical Society, War Memorial Committee we gave new life to the Veterans Day and Memorial Day ceremonies which the council took over and now handle through a town's event planning committee.
I, along with my brother John, were the co-founders of the Indiana Veterans of The Year Initiative which is now run by the Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana.
I am the 2018 Clark County N.A.A.C.P. Heritage Award recipient and current member of the Clark County N.A.A.C.P.
I worked with the Clarksville Police to start a Wise Choices for Students class in the three Clarksville High Schools which combine classroom studies, a pedal car and impaired driving goggles where students attempt to navigate an obstacle course simulating the effects of impaired driving.
In 2019 I participated, through a Rotary District Grant in providing computers for a new computer lab located in the Hispanic Connection of Southern Indiana offices.
I am an advocate for veterans and veteran needs, though I am not personally a veteran.
I petitioned and was granted a declaration of October 24th World Polio Day in Clarksville.
I petitioned the council and was able to get the area around the Clarksville War Memorial designated Veterans Place Park and have plans to make further improvements in the Veterans Place Park for our veterans.
I was an IHSAA referee for Indiana High School and Middle School basketball for over 10 years.
