I would like to bring my experiences of living and working in Hancock County to promote the growth of our community. Having served the community as firefighter and paramedic, I have seen how improvements in electricity and communications has improved our lives. These systems are now vital to the way we live and work. Also, I have had the pleasure to serve hurricane-stricken areas as a first responder. I have seen first-hand how vital electrical and communication grids are to the wellbeing of the affected area. I have interest in learning more about the local, regional, and national grids work together to bring us a better way of life. I would like to be part of a board that is and will bring a positive change to our community.
