Listed below are some of the beliefs that will guide me as Councilman:

  • Listen to, communicate with and involve citizens in the City's decision making process when possible
  • The City of Joplin will only prosper if employment opportunities will sustain their families
  • Safety and security is essential to the quality of life. Citizens must feel safe in their home, work place and city streets
  • Financial responsibility is essential to insure that actions or projects undertaken today can be properly sustained, maintained and a need exist for long-term usage without creating a burden of debt
  • Quality of Life projects; such as cultural, recreational opportunities, historical preservation senior opportunities and services enhance business investments, work force retention and provide a pleasant environment for retirees

A lifetime of living and working in the City of Joplin has provided me the opportunity to become acquainted with the needs of citizens from every neighborhood and to acquire a working knowledge of City government. I classify myself as a social moderate and a fiscal conservative.

You are a person recognized to be a contributor to the success of Joplin and I need your vote on Tuesday April 8.
