Set the Pace for Quality of Life by:
My roots, devotion to, and love of Arizona are deep. My ancestors came to Arizona in wagons in the late 1800's, and the family still has a ranch in Navajo County. I have lived here my entire life, attending Mesa public schools and ASU for a B.S in Business Administration, magna cum laude, and J.D., cum laude. I worked as a sales manager in the securities and insurance industry in Scottsdale before attending law school.
I love Paradise Valley, having made it home for more than 13 years. I have a passion for preserving the quality of life in our Town. I have been active in civic affairs in the Valley for more than 30 years. Information about my professional and civic experience is described on the Home Page of this website. I would like to share on this page some highlights about my background and share some of my philosophy and approach to problem-solving.
I am running for Town Council because a group of neighbors in the Stone Canyon area on the north side of Camelback Mountain had a series of neighborhood get togethers to socialize and to discuss common issues and concerns, such as protecting the mountain views and ambience, addressing drainage and runoff issues, questions about Town government, and other concerns to preserve the unique quality of life in Paradise Valley.
These grassroots neighborhood gatherings resulted in a consensus that requested that I run for Town Council. To demonstrate their support, these same neighbors -- all of whom are very busy people -- went out and obtained more than 300 signatures on nominating petitions for me, substantially more than any other candidate for Town Council.
I will approach my service on the Town Council with the commitment, energy and passion that I have devoted to other endeavors during my career. Here are some highlights:
Although I am a lawyer, my approach is to think of the profession as being in the problem-solving and conflict-resolution business, not the litigation business. I try to think outside the box to attempt to find mutually satisfactory solutions to the conflicts that divide parties. I have engaged in trouble-shooting services for private businesses, industries and trade associations, as well as State and local governments to resolve issues.
If given the privilege and honor to serve on the Paradise Valley Town Council, I will be accessible to Town residents, will listen and give thorough consideration to everyone's views, and will seek solutions that are a win-win outcome whenever possible. I will bring skills and experience to collaborate and solve concerns to benefit residents of Paradise Valley.
PACE stands for Passion, Action, Commitment and Execution. I welcome your views, comments, suggestions and support. Please contact me through this website or at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-985-2613.
