Of all the issues for which our town officials are responsible, public safety is the most critical. It is paramount that we care for our citizens and, as such, we must adequately support our local fire and police services.

I am also a big supporter of our police department. Throughout my tenure as Town Commissioner, I have supported our public safety officers. I will continue to do the same as Mayor.

I believe in growth that is purposeful, therefore, new officers have been added strategically – not haphazardly. I take pride in the fact that Huntersville was recently ranked number 8 in the top 50 safest towns in North Carolina and I have no doubt that we can do even better in the future.
