My Beliefs

I'll Work for You

My Positions

One Okaloosa County

As the District 2 Okaloosa County Commissioner, I will not only work for District 2, but I will also work with the entire county’s benefit in mind. Okaloosa County is a family with diverse personalities. I will further working together for the benefit of the entire county.

Strong Conservative

A lifelong conservative, I will work to defend the conservative values of Okaloosa County by supporting law enforcement, our 2nd Amendment rights and pro-business.

Fiscal Conservative

As a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Valuation Analyst, I understand business. As Okaloosa County’s budget grows, I will work to ensure the County is spending tax dollars wisely. I understand budgets (large and small) and will fight to keep your taxes low.

Supporting our Military

I understand and respect our families that serve our country. The military is vital to our county’s economy through the jobs provided, daily business transactions by our service men and women and our housing/real estate market. I will work to further enhance the jobs that support the military mission and the families that serve our Country.

Improving Infrastructure

As the Chair of the County Half-Cent Surtax Oversight Committee, I am well-versed in the traffic issues Okaloosa County faces. We have taken steps to improve traffic flow through out the County and I will work to further these projects by forward thinking solutions and working together to ease the traffic frustrations.


I will work to bring the right businesses to Okaloosa County. As the County continues to grow at a rapid pace, we must be diligent in attracting high paying jobs to Okaloosa County. We can no longer afford to have generations moving to other areas of the country for higher paying jobs.
