Why I Serve

I have served our country and I have served you as Town of Paradise Valley Mayor, Vice Mayor, Council Member, and Planning Commissioner. It has been an incredible ten years of volunteer service to the town and I am honored to be serving in the ultimate volunteer position as your mayor.

I have worked hard representing the interests of Paradise Valley at local and regional events, state legislative meetings, and during development negotiations. I appreciate the art of running good public meetings and making public decisions that are open, transparent, and community responsive.

Paradise Valley is headed in the right direction and I will keep that momentum and protect that which makes this town special. The best way to do that is to keep taxes and crime low while maintaining a high standard of living for our community. That is accomplished through limited but effective government, staying committed to public safety, streets and infrastructure, and Quality of Life while making sure our vibrant resort industry generates enough revenue so we never need a local property tax.

I am proud to be raising my family in Paradise Valley. I have a wife and three school-age children. I am also proud that I can look my family in the eyes and tell them that together we helped leave Paradise Valley a better place, a vibrant place, a place that is unique and special.

It's that desire to serve and make a positive impact that motivates me to serve as your mayor. I hope that my demonstrated behavior and leadership have earned your support. I am ready and eager to continue serving as your mayor. To stay involved please like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter.
