As this campaign progresses, I have had the opportunity to speak my mind and weigh in on certain issues that we are facing as a town. I thank the people who have given me the platform to do so, and hope to have a lot more chances in the future. Please see below to hear my take on things in my own words.
Oro Valley Podcast - Interview with Jim Horn
One of the pleasures of running for Town Council is being able to discuss important topics that concern our town with a great variety of people, and a couple weeks ago I was invited on there Oro Valley Podcast to introduce myself and my take on some of these topics. It was a great half hour for me, Jim was a wonderful host, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to shed some light on at least a few of my ideas and positions.

American With Disabilities Act Discussion - Town Council Meeting

Many of our residents face physical challenges in their lives, and we need to make sure we are doing everything we can to help them with those challenges, not add to them. Below is my speech given at the Town Council meeting on April 6th about the subject.
