As Executive Director of the Oak Creek Community Center for the past 17+ years, I was dedicated to making Oak Creek a great place to live, work and raise a family. Now retired, I’m eager to spend more time focusing on the needs of our great community as we navigate through an exciting period of growth.

My Background

  • Oak Creek resident and homeowner for the past twenty-one years
  • Married to Sharon for 27 years, parents of two recent OCHS graduates, Kaitlyn (2012) and Hailey (2015)
  • Executive Director, Oak Creek Community Center since 1999. Retired in April 2017
  • 14 year member of the Oak Creek Kiwanis Club. Club President since 2009
  • Board member of the Oak Creek National Night Out committee since 2000
  • Member of St. Matthew’s Parish
  • Chosen as the Oak Creek Citizen of the Year in 2012.

My Priorities as an Elected Official

  • Understand the concerns of 3rd District residents by hosting quarterly “listening sessions"
  • Respond to constituents in a timely and respectful manner
  • Support responsible development which will increase community tax base revenue
  • Initiate public/private partnerships to enhance “quality of life” programs/services in our community
  • Fully support our schools and other organizations which strengthen our community

Although my full-time working career has come to an end, my willingness to serve has not. I look forward to meeting and working with the many citizens, organizations and businesses which make our city a great one!
