A Year As Your Wake County Commissioner

It has been quite a year of nonstop activity serving as Vice-Chair of the Board of Commissioners. The schedule remains full, taking part in ribbon-cutting ceremonies, speeches and meeting the great people of Wake County. Nancy is active working with the homeless at the Helen Wright Center for Women, and food insecurity with North Raleigh Ministry.
On the political front, I couldn’t be more proud of my fellow Commissioners with the initiatives we’ve set forth: public education; affordable housing; a living wage; mental health; healthy communities and transit, just to name a few.

With our transit referendum on the November ballot, the “More with Four” team joined the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce on a trip to San Diego.
We observed their commuter train known as the “Coaster.” Experiencing this was important since we will be adding 37 miles of commuter rail to our transit system after our successful referendum.

One of my great honors so far this year was being asked to give the graduation commencement for Wake Tech. With 5,000 in attendance, I enjoyed being part of the celebration for 860 new graduates from North Carolina’s best community college.
Hank and Kelly are doing fabulous. The grandkids are active in sports, all growing up too fast as evident of George graduating from high school.
George will be leaving for college at the University of Central Florida this fall. We’re proud of Sean for perfect attendance in the fourth grade, and Isabel is active with competitive cheering. Hank loves his work as a surgeon, and enjoys hunting and fishing. After completing a Master’s degree, Kelly recently received her certification in social work.
My mom and her husband celebrated their 90th birthdays earlier this spring. We’re thrilled to still be celebrating birthdays with them!

Living on the Neuse River greenway, it’s just so easy to grab our bikes, head north or south as far as we want to go. We often take different routes given the 32 miles of the Neuse River greenway that connect to the greater 127-mile system throughout Raleigh.

Nancy and I love to take bike trips and make new friends. We visited the southeast region of Italy, known as Puglia. This is one of our favorite countries. The pizza, beer and wine just seem to taste better in Italy.

As we celebrate the birth of our nation, let us pause and think about family and friends as well as our forefathers and mothers who sacrificed to make our American experience a reality.

Thanks for your continued friendship as we wish you and your family a safe Independence Day. Nancy and I would love to keep in touch with our good friends.
