Personal Biography
My wife, Denise, and I are long-time Plymouth residents, and we raised our four children in the house we built 22 years ago in Plymouth. In 2008, I retired from state government after a 30-year career that ranged from being the Assistant Director of the Public Health Laboratories, the Chief of the staff that supported the state’s Health Services Planning and Review Board, and the State Registrar and Director, Division of Vital Records Administration under the Secretary of State. After retirement, I became an at-home software implementation manager, working with all 57 states and territories to install a national software suite that collected and reported Vital Records data. In 2021, I was appointed Executive Director of Transport Central, which is a small transportation company that transports elderly and disabled persons at no cost to non-emergency medical appointments. We utilize only volunteer drivers!
Local Government Involvement
I’ve focused on the Plymouth community and I've volunteered for several municipal boards as well as non-profit organizations. I was elected to Plymouth’s Selectboard in 2013 and I’m the current Chair. I am also the Chair of the Pemigewasset River Local Advisory Committee, and I’ve served on Plymouth’s Planning Board, Conservation Commission, Energy Commission as well as the Boards of several nonprofit organizations. I’m the current Executive Director of Transport Central, a local non-profit.
