Vice Mayor (current term 2017-2019)
Former Council Member in 1984
I moved here from Cleveland, Ohio in July 1979. I have been a Sebastian resident for 37 years.
I have one daughter, 5 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren
I studied business and psychology at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland.
I worked as a Branch Manager of a national finance company and transferred to the Melbourne, Florida office after agreeing to take an assistant manager position. After a few years I went to work at the Sebastian Sun newspaper as a reporter and office assistant.
I got an Emergency Medical Technician degree from Indian River State College while a member of the Sebastian Volunteer Ambulance Squad prior to Indian River County taking it over , and a member of the Sebastian 4th of July Committee before the Lions Club took it over.
After moving to Sebastian I became a member of the Parks and Recreation Committee serving as chairman for a number of years. I ran for City Council in 1984 filling a vacant one year term. After my term was over I went to work for the City of Sebastian Public works Department in 1985 where I stayed until I retired in January 2016.
My commitment is to the future of Sebastian and I hope to see it grow in the right direction and continue to serve the residents with a level of service that does not break down.
Sebastian is a great place to live and work and I hope we can keep it as beautiful and peaceful as it is now.
