(Current Term 2018-2020)
Ed and his wife, Denise, moved to Sebastian in 2001. After a week-end visit with his brother, they decided this was the place they wanted to spend their retirement. Ed is a Vietnam veteran. He has a BS in Business Management degree from West Virginia State University. He worked in business and technology consulting for over 30 years. Prior to his retirement he was President and CEO of a health insurance technology firm.
Ed started his city involvement as a member of the Code Enforcement Board, serving as chair for two years. He also served on the Charter Review Committee. He has been a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission for the past six years, serving as the Chair for three years.
Serving on these boards, committees and commissions has given Ed a unique view into the working of the city government, which has provided him a great understanding of the complex rules and regulations facing the city staff as they strive to provide assistance to the community.
In addition to serving on the City Council, Ed is a member of the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council.
Ed's priorities for the next two years are:
- Indian River Lagoon cleanup,
- Review of city codes to eliminate or simplify them where possible,
- Simplification of the process to open new businesses within the city,
- Septic to sewer conversion, and
- Control of city spending.
Ed is always open to citizen input and questions. If you have a question please call.
