The voters have spoken, and I thank you for your support. I'm honored to be your...

Republican Nominee for
Collier County Commissioner,
District 1

In this election, you chose Experience & Qualifications for Collier County. We have been campaigning for almost a year throughout the District, getting our positive message out, and we could never have done it without citizen trust & support... and the best volunteers any campaign ever had!

Citizens—please reach out to me via email, text, or phone… I want to hear from you! The primary has now concluded, and we must come together as a community. There are many challenges, issues, & opportunities in every corner of District 1 and all of Collier County. There's much work to do and I'm ready to dive in! Thank you for your trust and confidence to properly represent ALL citizens as we manage & lead this $2 Billion County. I look forward to representing EVERY piece of District 1 with credibility and influence to ensure our District continues to improve. I look forward to being YOUR public servant!

However, we still have a lot of hard work in front of us. I'm counting on your support on November 3rd in the General Election... Thank you!!!!!
Below are just a few photos from our multitude of volunteers from Early Voting as well as on Election Day. We have such a great team!

Many of you have asked what we should do with our yard signs in this period between the Primary and General Elections. Please take them down for now and wait until October to put them back up. We want to comply with all sign ordinances but also be ready for the push to the General Election. We'll need them up soon enough!
What's Next?
We need your help to begin raising contributions for the General Election. Please consider investing in our campaign (again) to ensure a decisive victory. The General Election actually resets any previous donation ceilings back to zero, so if you contributed during the primary… that amount doesn't count against any General Election donations. I need your support!

Proud to be your public servant ensuring Experienced & Qualified Leadership is in the seat for EVERY part of District 1!
Please let me know if there are any questions I can answer.
