"The city of Norcross is as strong and resilient as its people. Maintaining oursmall-town charm while making our city more competitive, keeping our city safe, and improving the quality of life for us all are my highest priorities - Together we can make it happen!"
Ibelieve that successful leadership requires many things;
The ability to craft a vision,
The need to collaborate and work with other individuals and groups,
The ability to coach inspire others, and
The ability to listen and a willingness to step outside your comfort zone.
Our way of life here in Norcross recognizes and respects varying opinions in society, and still preserves the rights of all to express those opinions.
It rewards hard work and perseverance, and yet encourages selflessness and generosity.
Our city remains one of the most desirable places to live in Gwinnett county. There are 549 municipalities in Georgia. The website backgroundchecks.org rated Norcross as #31 in its class of safe cities. Norcross has won several “Best Of Gwinnett “ accolades.
Our Norcross spirit is defined by our innate ability to reach out and help others, in times of loss and in times where volunteers are needed for a special project or event. That's the Norcross I know.
Those that know me, know that I have a background in business management managing both the manufacturing department and the technical service department for Micromeritics, a world leader in high tech, analytical particle characterization instrumentation for over thirty years.
I understand business and will seek to bring that business ethic with me as Mayor with the understanding that a city's operation should be run like a business with its citizen as its owners and shareholders. But you do that with compassionate respect for its employees. This approach creates a work environment that encourages employees to work with you, not for you.
I have three things that I believe requires our focus in order to maintain the quality of life that we know and love here in Norcross.
1. Increase our economic viability and quality of life
2. Increase public safety
3. Sustainability of our historic structures, parks and natural resources and tree canopy.
These are just a few of the big picture place holder issues that I hope as a city council, we can agree to continue working on in making Norcross “ A Place to Imagine”.
I am asking for your vote this November. Together, we can move the city of Norcross forward for a better tomorrow and years to come. Let's continue our momentum!
