From there, you spent 20 years between Oro Valley and Paradise Valley, Arizona, before finding your way to North Carolina. You’ve made a lasting impression on the town of Carrboro as well as Pender County. Your contributions will be recognized for years to come. You’ve been a wealth of knowledge to my staff, and I sincerely appreciate your lengthy public service career.
