My vast experience in business, civic and financial affairs qualifies me to work for the betterment and advancement of South Vinemont.

I believe in government of the people, by the people and for the people, and consequently I advocate an open-door policy.  I believe in treating everyone the same with complete honesty and integrity in all situations. I believe the town leadership has a great obligation to use the resources of the town in the best and most efficient way possible consequently working to improve the town.

I would like to encourage all citizens to take a more active part in their government. Countless thousands have died to give us this privilege. I pledge to work diligently for all the citizens of South Vinemont and will make every effort to ensure that the council keeps the community abreast of the affairs are important to them.
