Serving our Community & Citizens

Limited Spending

I pledge to continue being a careful and diligent steward of every taxpayer dollar. You work hard and your tax dollars deserve to be spent in a careful and conservative way. We must spend based on actual “needs” instead of “wants.” This is true now more than ever so we can safeguard Public Safety and Public Health as we move through these changing and challenging times.


We must preserve and enhance the quality of life we enjoy here in Dare County. This is essential. Whether is continuing to fight against offshore drilling or making sure our children are safe and well educated, I will continue to safeguard our community so it will always be a great place to live, work, and raise a family.


I will continue to have an “open door” policy for every citizen of Dare County. I sincerely want to hear your thoughts, concerns, and suggestions. That is why I have always provided voters with my cell phone number so I can be reached anytime you need me. And, I promise that I will continue to respond to every email or phone call in a timely and responsive manner.

Community & County Forums

Government works best when its hard-working citizens have the opportunity to speak and be heard. Since my first day as a Dare County Commissioner, I have championed the cause of conducting bi-annual community forums throughout the County. These forums are important and must be continued so the Board of Commissioners can get valuable first-hand citizen input. This helps us make sound decisions in a way that will serve the good of the entire community.
