Reasons for runningI feel i have the experience to run the City of Struthers. We need to have a mayor who has had their finger on the pulse of the city, has come up through the ranks, and has the time to do the job.
Priorities Finding funding to replace our main fire station. This building was opened in 1943 and has out lived its purpose. Also i want to have a stronger enforcement of city ordinances to clean up our city. Want to capitalize on the development of the Mahoning River for recreational purposes to bring people to Struthers.
Qualifications27 yrs. on the Struthers Fire Dept. In my 12th. year as a councilman at large. Have served on the Finance/Legislation committee, Police/Fire committee, Zoning/Annexation committee, Community Development committee, and public Utilities committee.
Positions on the issues Politics has hurt this area. Elected officials has been in the news in a negative way and is hurting our true image. I will give 40 hrs. a week to show i am willing to do the best to promote my city. Training my appointments to better qualify them to do the job will also do that.
