Green Cove Springs has unparalleled natural beauty, the St. Johns River, and is in the path of growth in North Florida.  I want to maintain the small town charm that makes Green Cove Springs a great place to work, live, and raise a family.

My vision is to leverage growth while protecting the “hometown” lifestyle that makes Green Cove Springs unique. 

To accomplish this, my focus is:

  • Expanding the tax base organically and through annexation.
  • Working within the financial capabilities of the City
  • Supporting Public/Private projects that contribute to the City’s vision and improve the quality of life in Green Cove Springs.
  • Protecting the St. Johns River
