Resident of Bellefonte Borough since 2005
21 years of experience in public education
Children in the local school system
I have lived in Bellefonte Borough, Ward 3, since 2005. My career in public education has spanned 21 years giving me the necessary skills to serve the general public. I am the father of two young daughters and want to assure they continue to grow up in a safe and vibrant community. If elected to Bellefonte Borough Council I will focus on three priorities:
1. Support Police Funding - I will support an annual budget that fully funds law enforcement to ensure a safe community.
2. Support Local Businesses - I will support business zoning to encourage small business growth and reasonable parking fees for residents and visitors of Bellefonte.
3. Fair Citizen Representation - I will support the development of new communication methods to ensure every resident is aware of proposed ordinances and other action items to encourage public comment before a final vote.

MEd Counselor Education, Pennsylvania State University.
BS Human Development and Family Studies, Pennsylvania State University.
I have been a resident of Bellefonte for 12 years and opened my therapy practice here over two years ago. I believe my training as a counselor allows me to problem solve and consider various options before deciding on a course of action.

Historic Preservation: I would address this by encouraging investment in the rehabilitation and reuse of historic buildings. I would like to incorporate a beautification program for the business section of Bellefonte with plantings and window boxes.
Business Development: I envision Bellefonte developing an artsy vibe with small town charm. Small shops offering a variety of goods that appeal to a mixture of people. I would love to develop a dog park similar to Tudak Park for residents and weekend visitors.
Community Events: I would work to bring events to Bellefonte to engage people and promote tourism. The possibilities for a town as rich in history as Bellefonte are limitless. I would encourage the advertisement of historic walking tours, including Bellefonte's part in the Underground Railroad. I would seek out opportunities to bring new ideas and events such as a psychic fair, a wine and food festival and art exhibits in Talleyrand Park, to name a few.
