I pride myself as a champion for my community. My commitment to service has made a positive impact on the citizens of Douglas and Fulton counties. I am committed to make the community that I am a product of thrive and reach its full potential.
Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.
Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.
Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together.
I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against.
