I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.

Whether it be the bridge collapse in Minnesota a couple of years ago, the closing of the zoo interchange a couple of month's ago, cement falling from the County Courthouse, Hoan Bridge or parking structures in recent month's to the latest story of sidewalks in Cudahy. To me, all Government thinks that by putting off needed maintenance on this country's infrastructure, they are keeping costs in check. But what is the cost of delaying these updates?
