I was born in Dallas and raised right here in District 13, and this is where I decided to raise my family. Our community is not just where I live – it’s a part of me. I grew up on Southbrook Drive near Inwood Road, and today I live just a mile from my childhood home.
I’ve built a lifetime of memories in our community. I rode my bike to my first job stocking shelves at the Skillern’s drugstore on Lovers Lane. As a kid I watched movies at the Inwood Theater, attended Sunday School at Temple Emanu-El, and played baseball and soccer at the Town North Y. My three children Tori, Cameron, and Andrew played sports at the same Y!
I have spent 35 years as a businessman and community volunteer. Over the course of my career, I’ve worked with neighborhoods, city employees, and business leaders to bring about positive change and growth. As our city navigates the challenges of COVID recovery and beyond, experience is important. With my love of the city and my background as an entrepreneur and businessman, I will make the right decisions to protect our neighborhoods, our local economy, and the Dallas way of life we know and love.
Good city government starts with the basics: safe neighborhoods, smooth streets, high quality parks and public spaces, and a City Hall that is responsive to the needs of our citizens. We can’t reach our fullest potential until we get the basics right.
For the past eight years, our community has been well-served at City Hall but due to term limits we will elect a new leader in May 2021. As a lifelong resident of this community, a proven businessman who has led my own business through tough economic times, and as a committed civic leader – I’m prepared to continue a legacy of strong leadership from our community.
Please take a few minutes to review my experience and my position on the critical issues facing our City. If you agree that we need an experienced leader with a deep understanding our community, I’d be honored to have your support.
