Occupation: Engineer, business owner

Prior political experience: None

Why are you seeking this position? I entered the race because the current council is not listening to residents. They are grossly mismanaging projects and risking Dunwoody’s financial stability on sweetheart deals for developers. They are wasting money designing overly complicated intersection improvements–that money could be used to repave the roads faster so we could have all roads repaved in much less than the projected 20 years.

Why should the voters choose you? My business experience makes me uniquely qualified to help get Dunwoody back on track. As an engineer I am trained to look at all of the issues of a complex problem, understand their relationships, and create a realistic solution. As a business owner I know how to stick to a budget.
