What do you appreciate most about living in Keith County?
"Good people and a vibrant base of volunteers that keep Keith County viable."

Hobbies include:
"Reading and car restoration."

Why do you enjoy being a member of KCAD?
"A good group of people dedicated to economic development in Keith County. Our board is on the front lines of moving Keith County into the future."

What is one thing you have learned about economic development through serving on the KCAD Board?
"Economic development is much more about laying a foundation than it is about recruiting new businesses. Business retention and expansion of existing businesses is more likely to benefit our area than recruiting a new business"

What is one thing you would like to see KCAD accomplish during your board tenure?
"I would like to see sales tax money used for economic development projects such as business expansion loans and grants.

Eric, thank you for your service to the KCAD Board!
We greatly appreciate you!
