Candidate for Council
I'm honored to have been recognized as a community leader and feel grateful to have been able to contribute to Phillipsburg in various ways. However, I'm just one of many individuals who have worked to make a difference. Together, we've been able to accomplish great things, and I look forward to continuing to serve my community in any way that I can.
Throughout my time in public service, I've always been a forward-thinker. I fought for more funding for our senior center and youth organizations while on town council, and I was closely involved with many of the most successful initiatives of the past twenty years. Most notably, I helped acquire and control the Ingersoll Rand tract, where redevelopment is almost complete.
My goal is to continue serving the people of Phillipsburg and create a community that people are proud to call home. I want to preserve the traditions that have made our town great while also making it a destination for newcomers to establish their roots. Together, we can make Phillipsburg an even better place to live, work, and thrive.
