December 2020 through December 2024

I have lived in Hastings for over 30 years and been a resident of Adams County my whole life. I am currently Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Hastings HVAC Inc, a local manufacturer of Industrial and Commercial HVAC equipment that we distribute globally. I’m currently a member of the Hastings Area Manufacturer’s Association (HAMA), and Manufacturing Pathways Advisory Team (MPAT). I am current Vice President, soon to be President of Hastings Economic Development Corporation (HEDC). As a big supporter of local manufacturer’s and locally owned and operated small businesses, I continue to work with public and private entities to help improve the City of Hastings. I look forward to serving on the City Council to help everyone that lives here!
