I’ve called Duluth home for over 39 years.  Its 
here that I have raised my family and created 
deep roots to family, friends, and the 
beautiful Duluth community. I have been married for 33 years to my wife Kathleen and been a father for 31. 

As a teenager I realized that people who work together can create great change. To truly make a difference in a community citizens need to step forward and participate in the process. I have been actively involved in public and community service in the Duluth community for over 39 years. It is this commitment to serve my community that guides me in my work as the First District County Commissioner.



                                           From 1987 to 1991 I was a Duluth City Councilor 
                                           representing the Third District.  I have also served as a 
                                           board member on a variety of community organizations 
                                           as diverse as the Duluth Art Institute, a theater group                                                  and a neighborhood organization that worked to
                                           empower low income residents. I am most proud of my
                                           volunteer work  in the development and funding 
                                           of low- income housing with Center City Housing and
                                           the Local Initiatives Support Corporation.

I have also helped build numerous collaborative partnerships between organizations and institutions and have worked extensively in  group facilitation, training, and non-profit management. True collaboration is a thoughful process that encourages and supports diverse approaches to accomplishing a task. I have come to understand its value while working with community groups across the state and believe that this committment o collaboration will make a huge differnce

As St. Louis County's First District County Commissioner since 2011, I have stood firmly for able, open, responsive and progressive government. Given the need for progressive voices in government I have an even stronger commitment to serving our community for the next four years.   I believe that county government must endeavor to promote the health, safety and natural resources of its citizens.

My vision for St. Louis County and my personal commitment has been and continues to:

Be a thoughtful and careful steward of the environment for present and future generations
Value all citizens and ensure that services are available to meet their needs
Support effective public safety so that community members can live freely and safely in their
   homes and communities while ensuring that all citizens receive equal treatment under the law
See that the county is financially stable and we support job growth and sustainable
   development
Look for creative and innovative solutions where ever possible
