Dear Kettering Voter,
It is hard to believe that my term as a Kettering City Council member is almost over. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve our community in this capacity and I want to share with you a difficult decision I have made regarding the fall election. Due to family and work requirements, and the fact that we have two other very well qualified and dedicated individuals to fill the At-Large positions that are on the ballot, I have decided to withdraw my candidacy from the November 5th General Election.
As the new owner of a small manufacturing company and a Dad with very active teenagers that will not be at home forever, I have chosen to step back and allow someone else take a turn serving Kettering as a Council Member. I want to thank the Citizens of Kettering for allowing me to serve in this capacity over the past 4 years. I intend to stay active in our community and do not rule out running for office again sometime in the future. For now, I am going to focus on completing my current term that ends December 31st.
To that end please feel free to contact me if you have an issue you would like to share, a suggestion for improvement, or a comment about something that local government is doing well. I look forward to seeing you out and about around town. Please stop and say hello. I am always looking for opportunities to spend time getting to know local residents, businesses and other organizations. This is one thing that isn’t going to change on January 1st!
Kettering City Council Member, At Large
