I have been involved in local politics, serving as clerk and Judge of Elections in my State College precinct and now Majority Inspector. I was a moderate Republican at one point, but changed parties after the 2000 election.
My wife and I were formerly Democratic Precinct Co-chairs.
I’m especially proud of the work that led to the construction of the Bellefonte Central Rail Trail. It was one of our community’s constructive responses to 9⁄11. Just weeks after the attack, more than 100 volunteers cleared the first overgrown section of railbed.
I currently serve on the State College Borough Transportation Commission. In a previous rotation on the Commission, we helped implement traffic calming speed humps in the Highlands neighborhood, pedestrian lead times in the downtown district, and plan for a set of bike lanes.
