"I have had the pleasure of watching the City of Watauga grow for over 30 years. From dirt roads and fields to shopping centers and world class restaurants. The vision and wisdom of leaders current and past has made this city what it is. My hope is to build on that great legacy. Working together with our awesome city staff and our great citizens, I’m excited to see what we can achieve."
