With Your Help, Would Like to Be Gloucester City’s Next Mayor
GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (August 31, 2021)--I am honored to be running for Mayor of Gloucester City. I believe I am uniquely qualified to serve in this position since I am a lifelong resident, current Council Member, active leader, and volunteer in many of our community organizations as well as being a successful business owner. If I am trusted with your vote, I promise to work hard on your behalf and always be accessible to my fellow citizens and neighbors.
My wife Linda and I raised our daughter Samantha in the same house I grew up in. Sam received a great education and graduated from Gloucester High just as I did. Although my business is located in Philadelphia, my life has always been Gloucester City-centric.
The quality and active nature of our community and civic organizations make Gloucester City unique. Over the years I have been fortunate to serve in leadership positions in our sports associations including Gloucester Youth Soccer, the Pony Tail League, and the Police Athletic League (PAL) of which I am still Treasurer. I have served as President of the Gloucester City Lions Club and progressed to be the Governor of our South Jersey District. Our local Lions Club makes significant financial contributions to many worthwhile Gloucester City causes as well as conducts preventative eye screenings for our school children. Gloucester City is a community of faith and I have been a vestry member of the Gloucester City Church of the Ascension for 31 years.
As a Council Person at Large, I currently represent all 3 wards of our City and serve on the Finance and Public Works Committees. Prior to that I also served politically as Committee Person for the Camden County Democratic Party in Gloucester City’s Second Ward.
In addition to an in-depth knowledge of Gloucester City, I have built a successful business across the river in Philadelphia. I plan to use my management skills and business knowledge gained over the last 36 years to move forward development projects that have long been stalled as well as increase government responsiveness and ensure financial accountability.
I promise I will never take your vote and support for granted. I will work hard as your Mayor and with all of us working together, we can realize the claim made on the Welcome Signs as you enter town that “Gloucester City is Where Great Things are Happening”!
