For Local 4321 President
It’s official! I’ve decided to run for President of our union. As it will ultimately be up to the body to make that final decision. I will accept nominations in August and press forward thereafter.
The Leadership Our Union Needs Right Now
Since my first union election in 2005, I have served as sergeant of arms, staff representative and Vice President. As Vice President, I was responsible for advocating the needs and identifying the critical issues affecting 650 active and retired Broward County Firefighters. In addition, I have been on the contract negotiating team, chair of our crash advisory board, and manager of “Fire Ops 101”.
I have spent my career as a Firefighter/ Paramedic in various locations, many which have diverse neighborhoods. It was these stations and neighborhoods where I developed my passion for advocating for the rights of my fellow brother and sister Firefighters.
I currently live in Cooper City with my wife Rachael and our two daughters, Madison and Brooke.
I’ve been blessed to have had mentors that believed in succession training. As in all leadership positions, my goal is to press through barriers and find new innovative ideas, at the same time preserving solid standard practices. I use every opportunity to engage with my colleagues and strive to learn and expand my knowledge within our field.
