Dear Kenilworth Residents,

 As a candidate for Mayor I thought you might want to know a little  about my me and my family,  how  my work  experience,  and my community involvement  qualities me for being your Mayor.

     My Greatest accomplishment was to marry my wife of 23 years, Darlene, and purchase a home in Kenilworth.  Then 19 years ago, we adopt our son, a 6 month old beautiful baby boy from Guatemala, and gave him the opportunities that we take for granted here in the USA.   I am a proud graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. I then spent 20 years managing facilities, and ensuring profitability for the companies that I worked for.
