I Need Your Support

An Attorney, Advocate, and Fighter.

When I saw how the Mecklenburg County Property Revaluation was failing us - I knew I could help fix it. The County Commissioners selected me in a Bi-Partisan ballot as Vice Chairman of the Board of Equalization and Review.

I personally voted to lower the taxes for thousands of citizens throughout Mecklenburg County. I demanded proof for every dollar of your home value and fought as your Advocate.

When I got tired of the poor roads and potholes plaguing our community, I personally went to Lowes and spent my money on supplies. I bought the tools and the asphalt. I fixed the problem when gov failed us.

When the Arts Sales Tax referendum was being pushed, I teamed up with Matthew Ridenhour to stop it. I purchased signs and helped make the push to stop the senseless tax increase. I campaigned and helped push the message that a sales tax for private arts was unacceptable.

When good people in our community expressed a need for the homeless, I came forward with thousands of dollars in personal donations to shelters, food banks, individual food and clothing supplies, and personal support.

I will be your Advocate on the County Commission. I’m a father of five who wants to create a pro-job growth, low tax, low crime environment that moves our entire community forward.

I’m concerned about the crime (100+ murders) and I am concerned about the annual property tax increases.

I’m concerned that the County Commission is ignoring the values and needs of District 6. I want fight for our future.


I'm passionate about South Meck.   I have no desire for other political offices and I want to be your Advocate.

South Meck needs a leader who doesn’t advocate for annual property tax increases, push for sales tax increases for private enterprise, and watches as the murder rate crosses 100+ lives. Home invasions and property crimes are now a South Meck problem.

We are living in seemingly robust economic times, yet the published reports show that the Meck homeless population has nearly doubled since 2017. This is no longer a distant inner city problem - it’s a Matthews problem. It’s a Pineville problem. It’s a Mint Hill problem.

Our parks and greenways rank near the bottom in national surveys. It’s discussed at length - but funding priories fall short.

We need a strong CMS, CPCC, low taxes, and low crime rate to create a job inducing environment that leaves no one behind. Not just jobs for college grads, but jobs for tradesman and workers of all skill levels.

The best social program is a job, and I hope you will support me in making South Meck stronger with fiscally conservative ideals and a pro-growth mentality.


Please sign up for my e-mail announcement (No spam) and I hope to meet you on the campaign trail, knocking on doors ... or over a cup of coffee.

We are a diverse community with many needs and I hope you will reach out and discuss the issues most important to your neighborhood.
