Why are you interested in running for this office?: Moving here while serving in our Army over a decade ago was the best decision and very easy because of the community and schools. Our family experiences over the past ten-plus years are filled with joy and comfort even during challenging times when I was deployed in harms-way overseas. The community wrapped their arms around Audrey, Emily and Sam during these times and for that, I am eternally grateful and believe it is time for me to step up and serve those that have provided to us. With that said, I want to serve our community in a leadership role that focuses on strengthening District 5 and the entire County within the region and state while maintaining our core values. I am committed to serve and lead our community providing the needed resources to thrive while maintaining Carroll County the place to be with its beautiful rural & agricultural culture, an engaged & involved community, and most of all an awesome friendly & neighborly County. For some, "service" is a slogan, but for me and the family it has become embedded in our life and culture, tested in conflict, proven in successes and has become a permanent mission.
