Thank you for taking the time to look at my qualifications for Northampton County Council. I have lived most of my life in Lehigh and Northampton Counties and, as my wife can tell you, I love this area. We have beautiful farmland, the perfect change of seasons, and most of all, some of the best people I’ve ever known in my life.
I am running for county council because I believe I can make a difference in our county. My father worked as a union employee and my mother stayed at home. They instilled a work ethic in their children, and a love of country, that I hold dear today. We were taught to stay out of debt, to work hard for what we earned, and to always give more than what was expected. Our country’s economy may be in dire straits, but I believe our county can flourish by holding fast to these virtues. Virtues that our Founding Fathers lived by and created the Constitution to protect. I believe I can be an instrument to help make sure Northampton County continues to be a viable place for business and recreation, a prosperous place for all of our families.
