Bio: We have lived in Albemarle County since 1997 and it has truly become home. Serving Albemarle County as a Supervisor would be an honor.  I am hard working and will approach every issue with purpose and common sense.  I believe in transparent government that encourages citizen participation.  I am also a proponent of thinking outside the box and will not shy away from the difficult issues. Finally, I believe our collective prosperity is dependent on rational yet responsive growth management principles and a fiscally responsible government.
