2023 Election Guide
Reasons: We are losing a good town councilman.
He is not running for a new term.
I would like to fill his seat and continue what he has been working on, water, Old Milton school lot, renew basketball court, possible tennis court or pickleball, new play park, tree safety and infastructure.
I have been self employed for 40 years as a general contractor and work around this area and surrounding areas. I have been raised and lived in Milton basically 62 years. I have 12 family members that live in Milton. My wife has lived in Milton 40 years and raised her 3 children here. Her parents, aunt and uncles went to Milton School and graduated from here. She went to 6th grade here and her 3 children went here until it closed. Her dad was a sharpshooter basketball player and her mom a cheerleader.

$5 million: Abandoned and blighted properties, large tree trimming around town, infrastructure need — street work, sidewalks, new maintenance building, new fire station. Any money left — Bank it.
