"I want to work for you, because I believe in Community First! One of my goals is to create a bridge of communication between the town government and OUR community members.  In order for our town to grow responsibly, there needs to be an open dialogue about what the plans are and how the towns people feel about it.  I believe that most everyone that has chosen to move to this area has done so because they felt it was a nice place to raise their family.  I know I did.  With Fort Mill having one of the best school districts in the state, I absolutely wanted to move to this area.  I am lucky enough to have a job that allows me to live anywhere in the world, but I chose Fort Mill for the family qualities and charm that it has.  I only want to see it become what I know it can, and I believe I can provide an objective view and help the voices of the people coming here for the same reason, to be heard."

If I do become a town council representative I would like to take a heavy look at our future planning goals.  In discussing with many neighbors over the past few months, there seems to be a consensus that we are just building without preparing for what is to come.  A couple of thing that appears to stand out to everyone is the town and road infra-structure, as well as the town buying it's water from Rock Hill.   

It almost appears as we are carelessly building without having a major plan in place.  If not, the Fort Mill bypass/parkway would have been 5 lanes from the beginning.  We can not sustain this rapid growth by just building and building without having a proper support structure in place.  In order to attract the proper businesses to come to our town and more importantly the Fort Mill Parkway area, we need to take another look at what we are doing in order to ensure responsible growth


Fort Mill has grown leaps and bounds over the past decade and with that, has a very diverse community with people from all over the globe and not just the town of Fort Mill.  Why not have the Town Leaders be as diverse as the community it is representing.  


As a community we need to have a more open dialogue with the community to ensure that we are providing it's members what they truly want and desire.  If I get elected, I will one hundred percent be engaged with my townspeople to ensure that their voice is heard.
