I am running for Hampden Township Commissioner because local government matters. Decisions made locally impact downstream and upwind. Local governments must communicate with residents and other municipalities while working with regional and state leaders to build safe and sustainable plans for the future.
In short, it matters.
I seek your support on May 21 (whether Democrat, Republican, third party, or independent) for Hampden Township Commissioner as I look to become more involved in the community where my wife and I are raising our three children. I believe active civic engagement strengthens our increasingly diverse community, for the benefit of all, regardless of age, color, creed, disability, gender, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.
As a lifelong Pennsylvania resident, I lived and worked in the field of education on both sides of the Susquehanna River since 1996. First as a science teacher, then civil servant, and now as an administrator, I have academic, professional, and community experiences that will serve our community well as I continue listening and learning to support a safe and sustainable plan for the future. In addition to my professional experience, I have held leadership positions in church, with Boy Scouts, Jackson Township Sewer Authority, and Pennsylvania Special Olympics. Academically, I studied education (PSU), science (RPI), administration (McDaniel and Immaculata), and school business leadership (Wilkes).
Thank you for your interest in our community’s election process.

Candidate for Hampden Township Commissioner
