Occupation: Construction Company Owner, Former Hershey Global Business Executive

As a 27-year Newcastle resident, I am committed to representing the voice of the citizens, operating with a proper balanced budget, and ensuring public safety is our top priority. None of this is happening today. The current council majority imposed an unnecessary 2% property tax increase this year and plans for more taxes. I will apply my proven business experience to operate within our financial means, ensure your tax dollars are invested responsibly, and hold contractors to the highest standards. I will pursue responsible growth, maintaining high regard for our environment, your private property, your hard-earned money, and the friendly neighborhood feel of our community.  


Working with police in Newcastle and neighboring cities, I have personally affected crime in our neighborhoods and built synergies with those cities.  I bring straight talk, fundamental business experience, success with multi-million-dollar contract negotiations, fiscal excellence, and common sense.


I genuinely appreciate your vote.

Education: B.A. Engineering Management, Missouri S&T
Occupation: Senior IT Consultant for SAP, Current Newcastle City Councilmember

As an 18-year resident of Newcastle and the first person of color to serve on the City Council, my vision for the city is grounded in a desire to live in a safe, welcoming, and vibrant community. I served on the Newcastle Planning Commission before my appointment to the City Council and have a strong understanding of what is required to run our city responsibly and sustainably. I value open discussion and input from the community and will continue to advocate for programs and solutions that benefit all of us.


Public Safety is a top priority and I support a human-first approach to policing. I am also committed to supporting our local businesses and preserving our small-town roots while managing the growth of Newcastle .
