14-year resident of Parker

Profession: IT data warehouse consultant

Why are you seeking this office? As a 14-year resident, I have a track record of community involvement and civic duty. Running for town council is a natural progression for me as I truly love Parker. I am the type of guy who stays involved with the town year round. I wish to serve the community and do what I can to maintain the high level quality of living that we have.

What makes you the best choice for this office?

As mentioned, I feel my community involvement is the main deciding factor. Starting with asking questions from town council/staff, attending open houses, becoming a planning commissioner, attending Civic Academy, I have immersed myself with knowledge and facts about Parker. In addition, it is my goal to share that with others. Add in my volunteerism with coaching youth sports, my Rotary Club, and other organizations, you could say I am 100 percent committed to Parker.

What are the most important duties of a member of council?

I have a strong respect for the law. Citizens entrust elected officials to follow the law even if you do not like the result or outcome of a decision. However, laws can change and ultimately the voice of the people is the guiding authority that will help shape the future of Parker. Therefore, it will be my duty to obey the law and wishes of the citizens to the best of my ability.

What should be done to ensure a high quality of life for residents as the town's population continues to grow?

My hope is to get Parker better situated for the future. I would like a thriving town where citizens work, play, shop and eat becoming fully engaged in their community. My priorities would be creating a more diverse economy, a renewed focus on open space, parks & rec projects and shaping the town responsibly. Achieving a healthy balance from our storied past while looking forward to the 21st Century is important to me.

What will your top priority be if you are elected to this office?

Over the years, I have felt it important to share facts, details and the truth with as many fellow neighbors possible. That is why I created a Facebook group, Parker Data Hub, with that purpose in mind. When elected I wish to continue this mission by embracing the opportunity of a fully engaged citizenship. That meshes nicely with my Rotary Club motto, "Service above Self" and that means everything to me.
