Thank you for your interest in my candidacy for Wilmington City Council. A brief overview of my background and my full resume are attached. You’re probably on this site for some of the same reasons I’m running – we love this beautiful and vibrant area, we want to preserve what makes it special, and we want to protect and expand the quality of life for all of our citizens.
I moved here in 1981, and have followed closely the staggering growth of the region. Wilmington’s population has grown by more than 45% just since 2000. We serve as the retail, recreational and cultural hub for the rest of burgeoning New Hanover County, and for one of the fastest growing places in the nation, Brunswick County. I have a unique perspective on this growth because market research is an area of expertise, and I’ve followed local demographics closely for the many businesses and organizations I’ve done marketing for over the years. Some thoughts include:
Addressing these issues will be a start in ensuring that we will all experience the quality of life we’re known for into the future. Thanks again for your interest. I feel lucky every day to live in this wonderful city, and am asking for your vote so I can do my part in building on the successes of the past.
