My wife, Gwen, and I moved from Dallas to Prosper in May of 2004 with our five young kids. Looking back, it was the best decision we could have ever made for our family. Each of our kids have grown up with Prosper, and in a few months, we will celebrate our youngest graduating from Prosper High School. It is hard to believe Prosper's population was only 2,300 people when we first moved here. If you would have told me our Town would grow to nearly 30,000 in just 16 short years, I would have spent all my money trying to purchase as much land as I possibly could!
Having a record of attendance in Town Council sessions since the beginning of our time in Prosper, I have had opportunities to meet and develop relationships with those who have loved and served our Town throughout the years. After I was elected to Town Council Place 1 in May of 2019, I was the fortunate beneficiary of a legacy left by visionary men and women who poured their hearts into serving the community they love. To the leaders of the past and present, thank you for your service. I am honored to have a role of leadership within this great community, and continue the legacy that was left for me. I promise to represent those who have come before me well, to lead in a manner worthy of this position, and to always put the people of Prosper ahead of the growth of their Town.
Prosper, thank you for trusting me to help shape and prepare our community for the future. This is a role I do not take lightly, or without keen awareness that you, my neighbor, friend, and family, are the reasons I serve. Please feel free to call, text, email, or messenger IM me at any time and for any reason.
