As Township Commissioner, I will continue to build on the successes of my first term, improving government transparency and accountability for our citizens.

I have worked with my fellow Board members to revamp our township website; begin a Township-wide newsletter; and install a new audio-visual system in our public meeting room with live-streaming capabilities for residents’ access to public meetings. As Emergency Management Coordinator, I will continue to ensure we are prepared for every emergency that may affect our community. I will continue to support improving and expanding our township parks, aggressively paving our roads and replacing outdated equipment and processes. These initiatives have made Pocono a model for our region, and I am going to continue to move our Township forward.
