My wife, Deborah Dawson, and I retired to the Village in 2008 and were impressed with how Village government and staff
set aside political differences to keep the Village working for the good of its citizens and businesses. We have served in
Village and county governance since 2013.
I hope to continue to help the Village be successful, and ask for your support in serving on the Board of Trustees
