A little history of myself:

As a young man, I served as a volunteer firefighter in the State of New York with the Warwick Hook and Ladder Company, an area somewhat different than ours, but fire service nonetheless. Later, I went on to spend seven years in the United States Air Force, enlisted, as a communications technician. During my tenure, I have seen different areas of the world, held many positions of responsibility and have had many men under my supervision. I left the service honorably, as a Disabled Veteran, having served in Desert Storm. Currently, I am the owner and founder of General Telemetry, a company that designs and installs fire detection, life safety evacuation systems and building controls.

Since moving to the area of Grizzly Flats in 2004, I have become very involved in the community. I joined the Grizzly Flats Fire Safe Council in 2006 and am now the Vice Chairman, second term. I am also the Vice President and the incorporator of the G FORCE organization; a registered non-profit corporation for public benefit. G FORCE is the Grizzly Flats Organization to Reunite Community and Education. We have many events and programs to help raise capital for our people in need and our local school.

I have lived all over the country and been all over the world, having finally found my true home here in these mountains. Fire and life safety is of principle importance in any community and my love of this land and its' people compels me to service. We need to ensure a high level of protection to this mountainside without additional taxes! For this reason, I ask for your endorsement and election to the seat.
