DAYTONA BEACH -- I want you to be the first to know that I am a candidate for the Volusia County Council at-large seat for the 2014 election. I am excited to share this news with you and grateful for all your support and help during this last election season.

Working together, we have moved our beautiful county forward in a quality way. It has been my honor to work with you on projects that have positively impacted our quality of life here in Volusia County.

Our county deserves a strong committed leader who understands the issues affecting us. I have provided that kind of leadership - every day - since I took office. That is why I am pleased to report that I have submitted paperwork for election to the Volusia County Council at-large seat and to ask for your support as I take this next step.
