As a long-term Wallingford resident, I've proudly raised a family here for over 20 years. I am a Marine Corps veteran who is President & CEO of a federally recognized Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, an extremely successful technology organization I started over 25 years ago.
By running, I can take my core principles of honesty, integrity, and trust and apply those to the elements of town government that I hope to affect by being part of this year’s elections in a town that I love. All this while maintaining respect and decorum with all parties involved.
I have two qualities that I pride myself on, one, the ability to listen, and two, the ability to think outside the box when solving problems by applying practical technology solutions (if appropriate) that can drive efficiencies in all aspects of local government.
