The role of mayor is unique among the council, requiring vision, leadership and experience.
Vision: I have observed Apex growth for 40+ years. I see where we’re headed. Governing in Apex for 10 years has given me the necessary experience to establish a 2035 vision for Apex. As mayor, I will codify that vision in my first 30 days. A sustainable growth management plan is a top priority.
Leadership: I was endorsed into Cisco’s Leadership Training Program. I earned my MBA with top honors. I now run a small business where I put business skills into practice daily. As mayor, I will lead by establishing 20-year targets, breaking them down into objectives, making sure we are pursuing the most critical issues, and holding people accountable. I will consolidate council member objectives and promote open government by calling for annual town hall forums.
Experience: After 15 years as a software engineer, I moved into project, budget and people management. I’ve managed sensitive schedules, multi-million dollar budgets, and direct reports. As mayor, I will hold staff accountable for quality project execution, transparent spending, and top-notch staffing as Apex grows.
