 CAREER HISTORY:  my working career began in 1966 as an Electronic Technician for Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation, testing the Lunar Lander and continued as Support Engineering Manager, overseeing 19 engineers and 30 million dollars in assets.  In 1994 I transferred to the Northrop Grumman St. Augustine Facility and worked preparing equipment and manpower budgets until retirement in 2007.

 COUNCIL REVIEW: Town Councilman since 2009, responsible for identifying and correcting questionable accounting practices, financial mismanagement, and saving taxpayers $20,000 annually by ending wasteful spending. Instrumental in redirecting Better Place Plan money towards eliminating debt and satisfying the Town’s road loan which saved $10,000 per year in interest. Hazardous blight on 119 E.

Other duties include: helping organize the Town’s annual yard sale, taking water samples for the Town’s beach, and preparation of the annual budget.

 TOWN VISION: I believe Council Members should represent the best interests of the Residents and strive to maintain a clean, secure, and prosperous community. We need to develop long-term plans for removing abandoned properties that threaten the safety of our citizens, repaving Town roads and repairing/replacing equipment. I bring 40 years of practical workplace experience to maintain and protect Pomona Park’s assets, to keep spending at a minimum while maximizing services to taxpayers. I will remain responsive to creative suggestions to keep Pomona Park a great place to live.
