The present Community Board and Community Club Management has laid a solid foundation for responsible growth. It is the responsibility of future boards to see that financially sound plans are executed in support of this goal.
My career experience includes sales and marketing, leading the Department of Commerce for the State of Iowa and owning my own business. This combination of revenue focus as a sales person, profit and loss responsibility as an owner and consultant to businesses and communities through the Department of Commerce makes me uniquely qualified to serve on the board.
My wife Mary and I moved to Fairfield Bay eleven years ago. This community has everything we hoped for in retirement. It would be an honor to give back to the community that we feel has given so much to us.
