I would like to extend a warm welcome to the City of Pataskala!
I was elected Mayor of the City of Pataskala in November, 2005, and my current term expires December 31, 2013.
"I am a 16 year resident of Pataskala and live in a 100 year old home in the old village section of the City. My wife Nancy and I operate the community's landmark restaurant and are the proud parents of three grown children, two teenage boys, and three grandchildren. I have a long and proven history of working to cause positive change and I believe this is exactly what this community needs."
"The city continues facing some big challenges given its financial outlook; while at the same time we need to work on the reduction of the tax burden on local residents by attracting smart commercial growth. To that end, I am dedicated to making Pataskala a more business friendly community and we are working hard to make sure that we have the elements of good government in place and operating. We are continually examining all parts of the city government to determine opportunities for improvement. We also strive to meet with local business owners and operators to discuss business growth and retention issues. Lastly, we will work to reach out to our citizens and educate them about the issues facing our growing city."
"I believe strongly in Pataskala's future and its citizens and have experienced first hand the power this community has when it comes to caring for its neighbors. I encourage you to contact me or any of the City's staff members if you need assistance regarding a city issue."
