Howdy Lago Vistans!  It is imperative that we achieve a strong balance between the life we expected when we moved to Lago Vista and the life we want in the future.  I am a Conservative who values the virtues of honesty and integrity.
I am family oriented, having raised or currently raising seven children.  Two of which were foster children.  I am also community oriented.  I currently substitute for LVISD when possible.  I served as Treasurer and President for Lago Vista Pop Warner Football and Cheer. I currently manage the North Shore 4-H club, which serves the youth from Jonestown to the Burnet County line.  I am a member of the Lago Vista Lions Club and I belong to other civic organizations such as VFW and American Legion.  I also serve as a professional fire fighter and recently retired after 26 years in the Marine Corps. 
I believe in an accountable and ethical City Council that leads an open and transparent city government.  I have no personal or special interest of any kind other than my community.  Our community will grow and we need to ensure we have the infrastructure we need and the amenities we want as a whole.
Preserving Lago's past while planning for the future!

"Government control of the economy, no matter in whose behalf, has been the source of all the evils in our industrial society -- and the solution is laissez-faire capitalism, i.e., the abolition of any and all forms of intervention in production and trade, the separation of State and Economics, in the same way and for the same reasons as the separation of Church and State." --author and philosopher Ayn Rand (1905-1982)
"A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." --Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, 1779
