Vision for growth and development in Asheville: “My vision for growth and development in Asheville is one that is focused on integration of all municipal services to create a quality, safe, attractive, and diverse place where people from all walks of life can live and prosper. I think a community’s approach to its development process is just as important and inseparable from its approach to economic development, parks and recreation, transportation, or infrastructure planning and it is only through the integration of these services and programs that Asheville will continue to be the thriving place that it is.”

Professional affiliations: member of City of Asheville Board of Adjustment, President of Western Carolinians for Criminal Justice
