Public Service

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 911. 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.
