WHO IS STEVE
My wife Susan and I have raised our family in Carrboro and are proud to call this town home. In my professional life I currently work with Mutual Drug in RTP where I help family-owned independent pharmacies throughout our state to promote their independence and encourage people to support those local establishments (including Carrboro Family Pharmacy and Tar Heel Town Pharmacy right here in town). I have spent my entire career working with small business which I believe is the backbone of any town’s economy. I received my MBA from UNC’s Kenan Flagler Business School and work in my free time to help entrepreneurs launch their ventures.
Having a strong business and analytical background will enable me to serve Carrboro well and stand up for our town as the General Assembly in Raleigh does not often reflect the views or will of our residents. I have a focus on our environment and reducing our carbon footprint and use of plastic, and believe that Carrboro can serve as a model for other towns. I am also adamant that we put together a plan for communicating with all residents of our town to create a more involved, active, and ultimately knowledgeable citizenship.
I’m running for office because I believe that things are not headed in the right direction in our country and know that all politics are local. Together by creating a sustainable town we can all be the change we would like to see.
