Promises Made. Results Delivered.

While I am pleased to be running unopposed for reelection, much work remains to be done.

With your input, we will finalize plans for Melva Campbell Park, and oversee its construction for a timely opening in mid-autumn.

We soon anticipate receipt of the city engineers’ analysis of the citywide drainage issues, along with preliminary cost estimates and an implementation plan.

While most of the city enjoys new infrastructure (concrete streets, sewer and water lines, etc.), the area north of White Settlement has not received this investment. Implementation of the drainage plan, and completing the infrastructure renewal north of White Settlement, will make our new infrastructure the envy of municipalities throughout the county.

Most importantly, your city government has never operated more efficiently, or been more open and responsive. Regardless, we will get better.

I appreciate your support. You can always call upon me if I can be of service.

Proven Results

Did I “Make Things Happen?” You be the Judge:

When campaigning for mayor two years ago, I promised you "I make things happen." I hope you agree the last 23 months have been successful for Westworth Village. Among other accomplishments, we:

  • Completed a comprehensive citywide citizen survey, resulting in
    • lowered residential speed limits
    • a drainage plan requirement for all new construction
    • additional street lights
    • improvements to the Burton Hill Elementary school crossing
  • Created 4 new citizen committees, involving more than 20 citizens new to city service
  • Dedicated Melva Campbell Park (the city’s first true park), with an anticipated grand opening this fall
  • Adopted a “one lot = one house” zoning initiative, protecting our existing neighborhoods from increased redevelopment density
  • Lowered the city’s property tax rate
  • Improved the city’s outstanding financial condition, while also delivering desired citywide enhancements
  • Refinanced the city’s bonded indebtedness, saving $330,000
  • Turned our golf course operation from sustained losses to continuing profits
  • Authorized a comprehensive citywide drainage study and implementation plan

We brought the holidays back to city hall.
