I hope to help Forney grow and modernize while keeping the "small town" feel of the city. I would like to continue to bring more jobs to Forney to improve the local economy. Also, I'd love to brig more events and entertainment options for Forney citizens.


I have lived in Forney since 2003. My wife and I have a son and daughter-in-law and one grandson. Before I retired, I owned a lawn and landscaping business for 33 years. I took a special interest in local government in 2014 and before I filed to run for council I served on the Parks and Recreation Board.
