Oakland Township Park Commissioner (32nd Year)
"Thirty-two years ago I began the journey of being a part of the creation and improving of the Oakland Township's Park System. Over the years it has become a jewel within the Township to the point where I feel I can let others continue the vision we have created. With that I feel it is time to turn over the visions to a new group of Park Commissioners. These seven candidates have the honesty, integrity and willingness to continue and maintain these visions for our Township Parks. Land preservation and improving parks for the residents should continue to be of high priority. "
Oakland Township Park Commissioner (16th Year)
"Oakland Township residents will "hit the ball out of the park" when they vote for the seven candidates on the Park Protectors team. Professionals in their individual fields, all of these candidates value and hold dear the importance of parklands, nature and open spaces that residents moved to Oakland Township in the first place. In my 16 years as a Parks Commissioner I firmly believe that the work we did is not only for our current residents but for future generations to come. I am proud of that work. And I am certain the Parks Protectors team will continue that legacy."
