  On Monday, February 8, I filed to run for the office of Commissioner for the 5th District of Kent County Levy Court.  I have been very pleased to serve the constituents of Kent County for these last seven years.   
Over that time, I have been part of a team of Commissioners who are committed to maintaining low tax rates and high customer service to the residents and businesses of Kent County.  We are a great team, and though I use “I” in this letter, it is only with this team that we are so successful.   
I have been a part of a great team with these accomplishments over the last eight years:

  • Reduction of the County Budget from $30 million to $22.5 million.
  • Ordinance changes that reduce red tape for many simple permits and make it easier to understand.
  • Further developed parks and recreation for all Kent Countians to be healthy.
  • Support the Akridge Boy Scout Reservation and the boys and girls that are in Scouting.
  • Support our active military with tax deductions when they are deployed to active zones.
  • Support the Kent Regional Sports Facility, or DE Turf, to bring millions of dollars of economic revenue to Kent County, and promote outside sports for children.
  • Support our Veterans of all wars with tax discounts, tributes, and the beautiful Kent County Veterans Memorial.
  • Assisted homeowners and Homeowner Associations with issues they confront every day.


I consider it my pleasure to serve the residents of the 5th Levy Court District during these last seven years and hope I am given the opportunity to continue serving.  I hope you will accept this “job application” to work for you for another four years on Kent County Levy Court.
