I have been your Symmes Township Trustee for the past 12 years and am running for re-election on November 7th, 2017. I need your support and vote to continue to represent you in local matters. I am not a career politician but a retired engineer with a desire and commitment to be your public servant. I strongly believe in the “Golden Rule – Treat others as you would like to be treated” and am greatly troubled by the lack of respect permeating our society today. If re-elected, I promise to continue to represent ALL RESIDENTS fairly, prioritize safety, plan for the long term, and spend your tax dollars conservatively. My focus over the years has been to save money wherever and whenever I can. We have reduced taxes when possible, increased alternative funding through grants, matching funds and business sponsorships, and implemented gas and electricity aggregation all while maintaining our quality police, fire, EMS, and township road and park services.
