Born in, raised in, and remain a lifelong resident of Shakopee.  I was a Neighborhood Watch pioneer many years ago with the creation of the Pearson North Neighborhood Watch group which I captained for 12 years.  This success has lead to many other formed and forming block groups which assist our community in fighting and preventing crimes as well as controlling law enforcement costs.

Night to Unite (formerly National Night Out) has also become a part of Shakopee with more than 80 different areas organized and many more organizing every year.  I strongly support these efforts as shown in my own commitment over 30 years ago leading these programs to better our city.

Night to Unite gives us all an opportunity to get together, socialize, exchange news and views on the topics we think important and even (cough) clown around a bit.


I spend time during the year with various community projects and non-profit charitable organizations.  It's part of how I keep in touch with you, my neighbors, the people I represent since first elected to the City Council.
