I established this site to communicate issues and viewpoints about the City of Winter Park, Florida. I welcome all constructive comments. I hope the writing and debate here will positively influence the political dialog and contribute to the quality of judgments that influence our city’s future.
I look forward to your comments on this site and please feel free to contact me at [email protected] any time.
I do this because Fran and I have been fortunate to raise our family in Winter Park and we care about the city.
My experience has taught me that success (both personal and financial) is founded in the ability to think objectively and act on principle.
As I became more aware of the political processes in Winter Park over the past years I realized that we have a great opportunity to improve the governance of our city to ensure we build value for ourselves and for future generations. My family, business, and organizational experience leads me to believe we can set and achieve common goals by working together in a transparent and reasoned way.
I have also found a fascination with the vagaries of politics; its irrationality, its attraction for those at the extremes of viewpoint, the behavior of some who challenge a romantic notion of humanity, and the resulting challenges to achieving reasoned judgments that serve the long term interests of the city.
So, I will explore, study, and write until I lose the passion for it.
The only real estate my wife and I own in Winter Park is our home.
