Biography

Thank you for visiting my web site and for your interest in my campaign for South Carolina State House District 98. I believe the Low Country is a great place to live and offers one of the highest quality of life experiences in the South Carolina.

My Dorchester County Council service has been committed to insuring that Dorchester County services are delivered at a very high level with both friendly and courteous treatment and without having to raise the taxable millage rate for businesses and homes. During my ten years of serving Dorchester County, I have had the privilege of assisting residents in resolving hundreds of issues and concerns. My attendance at Dorchester County Council meetings and events has achieved a near perfect attendance record and I served as Chairman of the Council of Governments (BCDOG), Chairman of the Regional (BCDOG) Land Use Planning Committee and Chairman of the Charleston Area Transportation Study Committee (CHATS) for two years.

I have a great concern for primary, secondary and higher education in the Charleston-Berkeley-Dorchester tri-county area and will always be attuned to any assistance I can provide for the education of our students. I also have a keen interest in insuring smart-growth of our area, especially through proper land-use planning and in promoting economic growth of the area that produces jobs and employment for our county residents.

My business, government and military experiences have given me a unique perspective of the challenges that lie ahead for our children, for our families and for our community. My desire is to bring a new generation of leadership to our county that offers innovative and sensible solutions that apply to Low Country concerns and issues.

I am a U.S. Army veteran, having served in the U.S. Army Intelligence Service, a graduate of Western Carolina University with a B. S. in Business Administration, an FAA Licensed Private Pilot and have with extensive business management experiences with Texas Instruments, Inc., Moore Business Forms and Planning Research Corporation (PRC). I have lived in North Carolina, Germany, New York and Virginia before moving to the Summerville area in 1981.

I have served for six years as an Honorary Commander of the 437th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron of the 437th Maintenance Group/Charleston Air Force Base for better community relations between the US Air Force and Dorchester County.
