Trusted Public Servant – Public Safety is a top priority that residents of Longwood deserve from their city leaders.  As a former Deputy Sheriff and Reserve Fireman, I understand the important role our first responders play within our community by keeping the citizens of Longwood safe.

My experience in law enforcement will bring an important voice to the Longwood City Commission. I understand what an officer goes through on shift and their specific needs to help protect and serve our community.  Together we can make Longwood the safest city in Florida to raise our families.

Promoting Economic Growth – As our city grows, we must keep up by meeting the needs of our changing community. By attracting more businesses to Longwood, we will improve our quality of life and keep taxes low. We need a strategy that will concentrate on developing high paying jobs, utilizing existing development opportunities, and cutting wasteful spending. I promise to fight for a plan that will focus on maximizing job growth and opportunity.

Improving Infrastructure – Strengthening our infrastructure will help Longwood to improve roads, build sidewalks and ensure the proper drainage to prevent flooding. Older neighborhoods need updated stormwater drainage systems that stop erosion. Improving our existing infrastructure is the next step to building a stronger Longwood.
