Protecting our schools and emergency services
Maintaining a strong atmosphere for business while injecting new ideas
Focusing on families and neighborhoods
A Trusted, Local Voice on Political Issues
Much is going well in the City of Beavercreek, but we need to develop new and innovative ways to attract businesses and families to our community.
I propose that we market Beavercreek as a “STEM-C” city, specializing in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Computer Science.
Our Middle School students are taking Robotics classes. Given our proximity to WPAFB, we can be a community that creates the jobs of the future.
A Family Man
- Protecting our schools. Even though City Council does not directly oversee the Beavercreek School system, Glen is dedicated to our education system and providing opportunities for all students.
- Economic Development. Glen supports the growth and proliferation of businesses throughout Beavercreek. His “STEM-C” idea is one that will position the city for future growth.
- Attention to Local Issues. Glen is running a “hyper-local” campaign because he loves listening and trying to solve local problems.
- Zoning. As the Vice-Chair of the Board of Zoning Appeals, Glen sees first hand issues related to zoning. He believes ardently in stability so that citizens and business owners alike can reliably invest in Beavercreek.
- Tornado recovery. Glen’s neighborhood was hit in the Memorial Day tornado; it was not the worst hit area, but he knows what it is like to wrangle with insurance and re-build parts of his home. He is fully dedicated to the recovery effort, and supports local businesses re-opening their doors.
- Supporting our police. The City of Beavercreek has 1.04 officers per 1,000 population. By most standards, this is low, so City Council should listen carefully to the concerns of the Chief of Police as the needs of the city change. Beavercreek remains a low crime community, but it is integral that policing remain proactive, rather than reactive.
- Fiscal restraint. Glen is very careful economically, and will seek to protect the money of taxpayers.
- Low taxes. Glen will maintain a close watch on taxes to keep them as low as possible.
- Parks. As the father of three children, Glen frequently visits parks across Beavercreek. He has new ideas on how they can be improved for the next generation of children.
- Splash-pad. On a recent survey of the city, a splash-pad is the number one request of the citizens of Beavercreek. Glen’s idea for the splash-pad is to build a park that utilizes Beavercreek’s mascot, the beaver, to educate children on Ohio’s contributions to flight and space–in one area, a beaver in a plane; in another area, a beaver in a space shuttle. Signs will highlight local citizens that have been pioneers in these developments.
- Bikeway. The Bikeway and Non-Motorized Transportation Advisory Committee has done some excellent work on the bikeway that runs through Beavercreek. Glen encourages this initiative, and seeks to help businesses capitalize when new visitors come to the city.
- Senior Center. Glen encourages the ongoing development of the Senior Center with new and innovative ways to engage the seniors of Beavercreek.
- Good neighbors. In the wake of the tornado, numerous neighboring jurisdictions helped our city. Glen seeks to maintain great relations with Beavercreek Township, WPAFB, and all neighboring municipalities to better the Miami Valley.
- Listening. As a professor, Glen does a lot of talking. But, listening is a top priority for him as he seeks to serve the citizens of Beavercreek. He is committed to serving the people of Beavercreek, and this starts with listening.
