My 30 years of varied in-depth Program Management, Material Program Management, Subcontracts, and Program Quality Management experience gives me a unique perspective on the various stake holders and processes related to operations. Municipalities very different than businesses but are still essentially operations. I was prepared from day one by attending Heath Council meetings nearly 10 years before running for council. And accumulated over 60 hours of Texas Municipal League city council training since I was elected. No day job can teach and train the unique skills and knowledge required to run a municipality or for excellence in community service. I do it because I love our city.
