For Scarborough Town Council

Moving Forward Together

Why am I running for Town Council?
My family moved from the Washington DC Area to my wife's home state of Maine in October 2016.  We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and raise our young children (now 5 and 7) in a place that has a greater sense of community.  We immediately fell in love with Scarborough!  Great schools, beautiful beaches, easy access to Portland, and friendly people.  However, since leaving my job in the federal government, I have missed public service and want to find a way to give back to my community.  We have so many opportunities to "move forward together" and make our Scarborough community even more amazing, and I have the background and experience to work with you to make that happen.  
What areas am I interested in "Moving Forward Together"?

There are both near and long-term opportunities I'm excited to partner with the community to build a better, vibrant, and more inclusive Scarborough!
