Statement of Candidacy

I am running for Mayor because I am passionate about the City of Tarpon Springs, and I want to help make a difference in the lives of our families and children.  I look at service as Mayor as an opportunity to impact the future of Tarpon Springs.  As a life-long resident, I have seen things change, some for the good, and others for the bad.  Throughout the years, we have been able to maintain a sense of community, our small-town charm, and Greek Culture.  The decisions that the Commission makes can determine the direction of our City.  Each decision must be made objectively and fair, by considering what is best for “all” of the citizens.  My years as a public servant, including my two terms as Mayor, show that this is the type of leadership I have shown. 

As Mayor, I believe in Servant Leadership, building consensus, and being empathetic.  The business community is very important to Tarpon Springs.  I will strive to not only bring the Downtown businesses and the Sponge Docks together, but also look for opportunities to bring resources to the other small businesses in Tarpon. Tarpon Springs needs leadership who is willing to network with other elected officials on the local, state and national level.  As a City, we need to promote and create synergy, not individualism; “We are stronger together”.  Help elect me Mayor, so I can help Tarpon reach it’s potential.
