The Plan

One People. One Goal. One Greenville. We are one people with one goal (to improve the quality and quantity of life for all) striving for One Greenville to make Greenville the best place it can be. It has been my privilege to work with three mayors and an interim mayor (2 women and 2 men) and I will strive to continue to use their visions along with my vision to make Greenville the best place it can be.  I am a native son of Greenville, have a family here, have a business here, my life is here.   I have served this city as Ward 6 councilman for 7 years, currently serving as Vice Mayor.  I am no stranger to service. I love this city, our residents, and the entire Mississippi Delta. I want to continue to serve all to improve the quality and quantity of life in Greenville.
