"For 40 years I have developed apartment communities under various federal and state agency programs. During this process I have received numerous grants and competitive funding allocations. I have done two leaking underground storage tank cleanups, four National Registry Historic Places adaptive reuse projects and several flood plain removal developments.
"I hope to help MVC preserve sensitive and rare sites, promote environmental and outdoor awareness and increase public lands and access opportunities."
