PROVEN LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR COMMUNITY
I am proud to have served District 2 and the City of Goldsboro for two terms, and look forward to accomplishing even more in my third. As Councilman, I have an integral role in developing multiple new attractions for the City of Goldsboro, which includes the Bryan Multi-Sports Complex. In its first year of operation, this wonderful addition generated over $4 million of revenue to be used to improve our city. I have helped to facilitate the restoration of the irreplaceable TC Coley Community Center and the construction of the new WA Foster Recreation Center. In my two terms as Councilman, we have also invested in two new state of the art fire stations to protect our citizens. I have been an advocate for the Downtown Goldsboro Streetscape project (Phases 1, 2 and 3), including the new Police and Fire Complex.
Additionally, as Councilman, I have fought to make street bonds, road improvements, and water-sewer infrastructure improvements a priority. I have focused on initiatives that are high efficiency, money-saving, and directly improve the quality of life within our city.
The quality of life for the people of Goldsboro is, and will always be, a primary concern for me, which is why I have
worked to improve parks and greenways in the City of Goldsboro. Our city must be a great place to live, work, and shop.
I am a Vietnam War veteran and a retired Marine. My family and I have been active members of the Goldsboro community for over 28 years. I have been married to my wife, Ann, for almost 53 years and together we have two daughters and several grandchildren.
Before joining the US Marine Corp, I obtained my BS from UNC Chapel Hill and a MS from American University in Washington, DC. After proudly serving my country, I retired from the Marines in 1990 and then worked in the local banking industry until 2010.
I am proud to have served the Goldsboro community in a number of ways over the years. I have sat on various boards, including Wayne UNC Health Care (formerly Wayne Memorial Hospital), Crimestoppers, Wayne County Public Library, and WAGES. I have also volunteered with the Tuscarora Council Boy Scouts of America, Meals on Wheels, Golden K Kiwanis, and St. Paul United Methodist Church.
