PROFSSIONAL: Founder and owner of Palm Beach Tire auto tire and repair shop since 1993.
POLITICAL: Seeking fourth term on Town Council.
PRIORITY: In all nine years I have never raised taxes. One of the biggest things is with the bridge closing. I want to make sure that emergency services and those kind of things continue, on the island side especially. So police and fire are a big priority for me.

PROFSSIONAL: Representative for Commercial Flooring Distributors, similar companies past 10 years.
POLITICAL: First run for office.
PRIORITY: If we don’t invest in our town, no one else will either. Help keep Lantana green! We must commit to selling Lantana as a beautiful and desirable place to live and engage in business.
