Nothing worth doing is ever easy, otherwise it would have already been done.
From Waiter to Mayor
Just a few short years ago, you could have found me serving breakfast at Penn's Table. There was even a chance I may have waited on you.
Every day, I met people from all walks of West Chester life. It was where I came up with the idea to build a "time machine" and began working with the Chester County Historical Society (more on that later). It was also during that time I decided I wanted to expand my filmmaking and storytelling skills and to give radio a shot at WCHE.
Bringing people together is what I'm all about. I co-founded the West Chester Cinco De Mayo festival, worked with Mayor Herrin to create the Mayor's Opioid Task Force, volunteered and raised money for the Melton Center, and raise community awareness about the pandemic eviction crisis. That is why I am running for Mayor of West Chester. I know firsthand how hard this economy can be. I want to give a voice to people who normally don't get a seat at the table.
While I have lived in many places, West Chester is the only place that I’ve called home. I love West Chester and will work hard to make it flourish. In these divisive times, we need a leader who can bring people together. With your help, we can work to build a sustainable, equitable, safe and prosperous West Chester.
Thank you for your time and support. I look forward to the opportunity to earn your vote.
Thankfully, Cases of COVID-19 are falling, but we aren’t out of the woods yet. I commend Mayor Herrin’s swift action last year, and I strongly believe that West Chester closing down as early as it did is a major reason why our numbers are low locally today, but we must remain vigilant.
I have a deep respect for the work of the WCPD, but last year our community made It clear that we need to reevaluate the way policing is done in our community. I am committed to that effort and have been working to develop a series of reforms.
Our environment is a precious and fragile thing. Thankfully, we here in West Chester have long taken our responsibility seriously. I plan on continuing the great work of my predecessors and will promise to work to uphold the commitment of getting to 100% renewable energy by 2035.
Ever since my 2017 mayoral campaign, I have been very concerned with the rise of overdoses and deaths due to opioid addiction in our community. That’s why I was proud to work with Mayor Herrin on her Opioid Task Force from day one.
My background is in video production, broadcasting and digital marketing so I have been communicating with the public for most of my adult life. I want to use modern technology to make our government more transparent and easy to access through a 3-1-1 program.
