1. What is your background?
My wife, Melissa, and I both grew up in Hoover, where we met in high school. We now live in Homewood, raising our four children, who attend elementary school at Shades Cahaba and preschool at Canterbury United Methodist. We’ve been married 11 years and attend Riverchase United Methodist. My parents didn't go to college, but I earned scholarships to Harvard and Alabama Law School. I am a practicing attorney representing employers and small businesses.
2. What is the biggest issue facing the state in the upcoming year?
Recently, corrupt politicians of both parties have made headlines. Public service should be a noble calling, not a career path. I have never run for office before. I will support term limits and a lifetime ban on lobbying by former legislators. I will be guided by my values and principles, rooted in my faith, and always do what’s best for our community, not for special interests.
3. What is the biggest issue facing Hoover in the upcoming year?
Hoover is our hometown. We attend the same Hoover church where we were married and our four children were baptized. Hoover is Alabama’s sixth largest city, but has no representative in the legislature. As a Hoover native and Hoover High graduate, I will provide strong, active leadership to ensure that Hoover remains a vibrant, growing community with first-rate schools.
