I currently have the honor and privilege of serving the citizens of Argyle as Chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission. I'm in my third year of service, and I’ve learned a lot during that time. My approach has been to thoroughly research each item, ask questions, facilitate an active conversation, and then objectively & fairly cast my vote based on the merits of the case, not on the individual(s) presenting it.
I decided to run for Town Council, Place 5 based on the following beliefs:
Thank you for the opportunity to continue serving you, and I appreciate your vote for Town Council, Place 5.
My family and I have lived in Argyle for nearly a decade, and we love being here. Prior to Argyle, we lived in the mid-cities area (Euless). It started out nice, but after 13 years, massive growth combined with poor planning turned it into just another overcrowded, congested city. We were ready for a change, and with our daughter Morgan getting ready to enter elementary school, my wife Sharon and I set out to find a better place to raise our family. Each time we went out looking at homes, we found ourselves driving farther and farther North. We were interested in Argyle from Sharon's research on top-performing school districts, and Hilltop Elementary didn't disappoint, but we immediately fell in love with the Town's beautiful mature trees, open spaces, and small-town charm.
Our first year in Argyle was amazing! I can still remember Morgan going through "kindergarten roundup" and quickly realizing what wonderful, kind and talented teachers bless the halls of our schools. We all made a lot of friends and became part of the community in no time at all.
I can also remember going to my first Town Council meeting in late 2010 to learn about future development projects, and it was a very different experience. Whereas AISD was incredibly open, welcoming and promoted "kind hearts" and children first, Town leadership seemed almost the opposite. There seemed to be little transparency, accountability, or consideration for what the citizens wanted.
As a result, I began attending Town meetings regularly and learning as much as I could about the workings of local government. Then in 2017, I applied and was appointed to the Planning & Zoning Commission by a unanimous vote of the Town Council. I continue to serve on P&Z today, and I'm honored to have been elected Chairman once again going into my 2nd term.
My work experience includes 28+ years of healthcare-related sales and consulting, mostly in the IT space. I am currently a sales executive for PTI, a company created from years of clinical research and dedicated to improving the health of our communities. My wife Sharon works for the State of Texas as a certified jobs skills trainer helping intellectually challenged adults gain employment in a job of their own choosing. We’ve both been actively volunteering and serving our community and AISD for many years, most recently as BAI-certified archery coaches. It has been an honor teaching archery to our young students participating in the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP). Go Eagles!
