Campaign Statement

It has been a great year for me serving on the Board of AmCham in 2017 with exposure to the far broader spectrum of the successes and challenges of members and the chamber.  I felt very proud of the unity of this community in a very eventful year and the commitment of you to a fair business environment, both of which are the values I hold myself accountable to.  With a better understanding of your needs, and improved capacity to act on behalf of you and the chamber, I am seeking a re-election. I will more effectively play the role of bringing local know-how to the board and identifying constructive solutions to the concerns of members.
