A tragic school shooting occurred in Connecticut this morning at an elementary school. Please keep the victims, families and the community in your thoughts during this holiday season.


Overlook Dr and Grovehill area of Temple Terrace is starting a neighborhood watch program. I went door to door today to meet with the residents. I spoke to probably 80% of the people living there and had a good response to the program. Monday I will be out on foot again to reach others in the area. Please welcome them aboard in the watch program. If you know of people living in that area of the city encourage them to contact me at
