Hi, I'm Kevin
WHERE I COME FROM
My parents moved to the suburbs of Tonawanda near Buffalo in the late 1960’s
at a time of racial tensions. My father worked at Pillsbury for over 30 years,
while my mother was a 3rd-grade school teacher for over 30 years. They have
been married over 60 years and still live in the same house. My parents encouraged us to get a college education. I have a sister and brother and all 3 of us graduated from college. My sister currently is a comptroller at a law firm in Buffalo and my brother is an elected county tax commissioner in Georgia.
TIME IN TEXAS
I moved to Cedar Park in 1998, the only place we’ve lived in Texas. My involvement began with the Cedar Park Chamber of Commerce Leadership class, when I participated in the 2nd “EVER” class in 2001. I joined the city of Cedar Park Community Development (4B) board and served for about 10 years. In 2013, I joined the Planning and Zoning Commission and served about 7 years.
Whereas helping to shape the city from board participation, one gets the real sense of our community from supporting your children through school and their activities. I was a youth coach at the YMCA for a couple years, then helping on booster clubs in middle and high school. So many fond memories with kids and parents over the years with band, football, basketball, and track.
STARTING A BUSINESS
After working at Texas Guaranteed for over 16 years and retiring from the Army Reserve, I started my insurance agency 5 years ago. I started building my agency and joined the Cedar Park Chamber of commerce. Business ownership is a different and challenging endeavor. The chamber relationships and involvement have been so helpful with ideas and support for the different roles of a business owner.
WHY AM I RUNNING?
I am running to continue serving my community. I have served on city boards and commissions to help shape our community over the past 15 years. The development of our parks, roads, and mixed-use projects has propelled our city to become a Top-10 small city in America!
We have an outstanding group of people that work tirelessly for our city protecting and keeping us safe and providing city services for all of us. My experience and leadership in working with many of them over the years are an asset to the role of the city council. I have chosen Cedar Park to raise a family and start a business. I am committed to serving the residents of this growing community and will represent our city with honesty and respect for all.
WHY VOTE FOR ME?
I believe voters are looking for a representative with experience serving and with experience in leadership. I’ve voluntarily served our city on various boards over the past 15 years. I’ve also served my country and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the US Army. I can be trusted to represent the city and all people with honesty and respect.
