I was fortunate to serve on the Naples City Council from 2016 to 2020. In those years, I helped lead the efforts of three significant landmark projects.
- Design and construction of Baker Park
- Reconstruction of the Naples City Dock
- Construction of the City’s Emergency Operation Center
All three of these projects were started and completed within my term, all under budget.
In the county, I have been concerned with the excessive spending that is occurring on landmark projects like what we are seeing with the Paradise Sports Complex which is currently $67 million over budget. Budgeting for a project and sticking to that budget is a fiduciary responsibility of an elected official to its tax payers. I have a proven track record of managing projects in budget which I will caring to the county level.
