I was born in Mechanicsburg and lived in South Middleton Township (SMT) for most of my life except for a very short stint living in Carlisle and North Middleton Township.
I graduated from Boiling Springs High School in 1966 and joined the U.S. Army Reserves. For the next several years I worked various construction jobs ending as a Construction Superintendent.
In 1973 I took a position with the then Department of Environmental Resources in Harrisburg. I retired from the Department of Environmental Protection in 2008 as a Senior Civil Engineer
involved with the design and construction of flood protection projects and dams for the Commonwealth. During those years I attended HACC and Penn State Capitol Campus studying Engineering.
I began my association with SMT In 1998 when I was named the Emergency Management Coordinator for the SMT. This is a Governor- appointed position through SMT.
The position is responsible for producing an emergency action plan for SMT. In 2003 I was named the Emergency Services Administrator as well.
This position has supervisory responsibility over all emergency services in SMT. To date, I continue to hold both of these positions in SMT.
Prior to my association with SMT I held various positions including 10 years as Fire Chief with the Union Fire Co., Carlisle. I clearly have a soft spot in my heart for the Fire Service.
