What do you see as the biggest challenge your borough/township faces at this time, and how would you address it?

My work (and passion) is in the bicycle industry and as a result, I have an attentiveness to bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. Since the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail was constructed I’ve observed and experienced the absence of a safe connection to and from the Downtown Lewisburg portion of the trail. This is an obvious safety issue as well as an economic one as residents and visitors would be more likely to continue into town and patronize the local businesses if there was a protected crossing. With the completion of the Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway imminent, this should be a real possibility and I hope to be a driving force in this project. I’m committed to making Lewisburg safer and more accessible by bicycle and on foot.
