My Top 3 Priorities

  • Take a balanced approach to managing community growth, while ensuring environment is protected, and water resources are used prudently.
  • Use my project management experience to monitor progress of the Black Lake sewer consolidation project and the proposed Dana Reserve development.
  • Foster good NCSD customer service and communications with the community. Work collaboratively with the community, NCSD staff, and Board of Directors to achieve goals.
