“Summit is an amazing community across its schools, parks, sports, arts, and neighborhoods. I will use my unique combination of experiences as a coach, volunteer, business person, substitute teacher, and father to represent the needs of the people to best serve the health and the vitality of our neighborhoods and town."
What I pledge to the people of Summit:
ACCESSIBILITY: I want to hear from you now and will be available to hear your ideas and feedback both before the election and while serving. Your opinions matter.
TRANSPARENCY: I will be open about all current issues and will communicate directly.
KNOWLEDGE I will dive deeply into the issues Summit is facing and hear all sides to form well-informed ideas and actions to best serve the people of Summit.
FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY: I will responsibly manage financial decisions coming to the Council with a conservative view of spending beyond the current budget.
LIST OF ISSUES
Broad Street West
It is a critical time for the current and future generations of Summit residents with the largest redevelopment project of our town in years currently approved and in its initial stages. I will prioritize smart and sustainable growth to increase the municipal tax base with multi-use development including retail, housing, green space, and family entertainment options.
Encourage more outdoor play for people of all ages through upgraded public fields and courts all over our city.
Summit is open for business all over town. My current work on the Economic Development Advisory Committee has provided a strong base with ideas that will improve neighborhoods through accessibility, safe sidewalks, enriched small business ownership where appropriate, and beautifying the streets of Summit. We have seen the benefits of projects like Deforest Ave with a wider sidewalk, new trees, and improved lighting. I believe beautifying streets make our town more enjoyable and safe for residents while also improving home values.
