COACH'S GOALS

* REDUCE SCHOOL PROPERTY TAX BURDEN

* ENHANCE VOCATIONAL & TECHNICAL TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

* HELP REVITALIZE OUR COUNTY SEAT

* COMBAT OPIOID ABUSE

* ENSURE THAT OUR 1ST RESPONDERS HAVE THE RESOURCES THEY NEED​​

I live in Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania which is the County Seat.  There are many projects in the works around town and while it may look a mess at times, in the end we should have something special that our children will inherit.  I would like to see more Family Activities, Friendlier Parking availability, and a more Inviting atmosphere  for new business.  I want to see a day, soon, where people want to come to Norristown , spend the day, have dinner, and go home happy.  I will fully support efforts to make this desire a reality.  Thanks for stopping by.
There is a problem when Taxes can be increased and all we can do is watch it happen.  This year Seniors did not get a raise in their Social Security benefits yet they will be expected to match the increase to their property taxes or risk losing their homes. One way to reduce taxes is responsible spending.  Don't get me wrong, tax $ are needed to support the programs that are necessary and vital to our communities but there are avenues out there waiting for us to utilize that can help get the job done without tax increases.  A fine example is Grant Writting,  millions of dollars go unused each year in our country because no one applies or knows about them.  They are not going to come find you, you have to go find them.  A professional Grant Writting team could be worth its weight in gold.  Also, do you see the job and training opportunities?  I do.
REDUCE SCHOOL PROPERTY TAX BURDEN​
When Property Taxes increase faster than a working man's wages....we got a problem!
VOCATIONAL & TECHNICAL TRAINING
Let me be straight forward, if you have a job that you don't like and you get a raise, once the excitement of the raise wears off (about 2 pays), you will still have that same job.  However, If that same job were to provide you trainings and offer certifications that you can use to move up the ladder or take to a better job elsewhere, that could be better than a raise.  If an employer helps with the cost or admission to some training that you can bring back to the job, wouldn't everyone benefit?  That is what I am after.  Education in all forms is the key to freedom.  This not only will improve quality of life, it will help our economy.  People can be in direct control of their future. 
Enhancing Vocational and Technical Training will allow residents to get better jobs and improve quality of life
OPIOID ABUSE is killing our kids!  We can't wait any longer to do something about it.  We must take action now.  EDUCATION is a vital part of the equation.  Elementary through High School, we must educate our children of the dangers, the consequences, the outcomes.  An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure is so important here.  It was almost wiped out in the 60s and 70s and classroom education had a big role in that.  The movies they showed us really hit home.  ENABLE our police forces to ENFORCE the laws we have on the book and to TREAT not punish the addicts when possible.  Our prisons are full of people driven to crime because of their addictions.  Let's get these people TREATMENT and support for the battle they for the rest of their lives.  EMPOWER our law enforcement to shut down the flow of drugs so readily available.  We need to move our fight in a new direction before we risk losing an entire generation.
OPIOID ABUSE
OPIOID ABUSE is running rampant across the country.  We must take steps NOW to stop it.
ENSURE THAT 1ST RESPONDERS HAVE THE TOOLS THEY NEED
Our Police force deserves to come home safely after their watch ends.  So do our Fire and Ambulance personel.  To help this they need to recieve the tools and resources that will make their tough jobs safer,  more effective, and more successful.  These guys put their lives on the line for us every single day and if there is something that can aid them with, then darn it, we need to give it to them.  Right now, Police can be very successful in helping Herion overdoses by administering Narcan before the Paramedics arrive.  They need to have this.  Let's ensure that they have Narcan.  Lives will be saved.  Maybe someone you know.
OUR POLICE OFFICERS, along with FIRE, and AMBULANCE need to be properly equipped to do their jobs effectively
