Why I'm Serving: 
“I was born and raised in Ferguson, as was my father. My grandfather started Negwer Materials in Ferguson in 1924, and its headquarters are still there. I am now president of the company with nine locations and more than 200 employees. As business owner and citizen, I am very committed to Ferguson and the entire North County community. One of my strengths is the ability to take a complex issue and break it down into pieces. I also know what I do not know and am open minded. My main reason for wanting to be involved is this is a passion of mine on many fronts. I am passionate about education. I am passionate about enabling those who are disadvantaged to succeed, and I am passionate about the well-being of North County.”
