I am committed to the citizens of Talbot County. It became evident when I won my first designation in 2009 as a Trappe Town Commissioner.  And, my support from the citizens became even more evident and encouraging when I won my second appointment in 2013.  I sat on the Trappe Town Council for a total of 8 years gaining experience through governance for the town.  I was employed 30 years in Administration with the State of MD. My service of commitment encompasses both the County and the Town of Easton.
