Municipality: City of Eden
Position Interested In: District Representative (District 9)
Tell us why you would like to serve in a leadership position at the League. In particular, specify goals you would like to accomplish as an officer or board member and indicate how, if attained, they will help to achieve Vision 2030 – the League’s future vision of how cities and towns will operate in 2030.
As a member of the board for the past year I have cultivated many new relationships with League staff and other members from across the state. I feel as though I have contributed as a board member to help the board and staff in efforts to advance the interests of NC municipalities. I would like to continue to serve on the board so that I can experience the better times that I believe are ahead after the COVID-19 crisis. I hope to be able to be a part of the new campus project once financial conditions improve.
Tell us about your experience as a municipal official. You may want to include information on your service on the municipal governing body, other related boards and special areas of interest.
I served 4 years as a City Councilman before being elected to Mayor in 2017.
