I was born in Green mountains of Vermont, and raised in the Cumberland mountains of Tennessee, the volunteer State. My father was my Boy Scout leader and I have been involved in scout leadership for over 40 years. Remember we are trying to build character in our young men. In 1965, my parents decided to return to Brookline Massachusetts where they grew up. I graduated from Brookline high school in 1967 and graduated Mass. Bay community college with an Associate's degree in accounting in 1970. From there I went for a four-year stint in the Massachusetts air National Guard as a jet engine specialist. I came home and decided to go into the insurance business with my dad. I have owned and run my own small business since first getting licensed in 1970. Just becoming semiretired last year.
Therefore I feel as though I have a business background and character and time to help bring Crown Ridge back to financial health. Over the past 20 years I have been on and off the board at Crown Ridge; frequently not agreeing with the past president. Furthermore, I have owned at Mountain View and served on the Board of Directors there since 1997 and have a great deal of knowledge about timeshare, and how it could and should work. Finally I asked for your vote to continue to be the unit agent for both units nine and 10.
