Campaign Events

As a current Gastonia City Council representative, I am always glad to attend or speak at your event.  I enjoy the interaction with all of the citizens of Gastonia and I especially enjoy discussion and debate regarding how we can make an already great city even better.


As a candidate seeking re-election, I will be posting campaign events that will begin towards the end of July 2015.  Check back to this site often and be sure to contact me or my campaign staff if you would like to schedule a campaign event or hold a fund raiser on behalf of my campaign.
