I was born and raised in western Kentucky in the loving home of a minister – power plant operator. College, military service, and my early law career took me many places, as near as the University of Kentucky in Lexington and as far away as South Korea. In 2004, my daughter, Allison, and I moved to McCracken County, and we’ve called it home ever since. She and our county’s other young people are the main reason I’m running for county commissioner. It’s imperative that we continue to build a strong and supportive community in which our children can grow, prosper, and raise families of their own.
Paducah and McCracken County has a lot to offer and is poised to be one of the greatest communities in the state. Along with my daughter, I partake in as many of Paducah’s growing number of artistic and culinary opportunities as I can. I enjoy spending time with my friends—fellow parents and those I’ve gotten to know through work and my local church. I’m an active person—tennis, running, and cycling—and look forward to a community that is increasingly walkable and bikeable.
