For NATCA President
The strength of NATCA comes from the professionals who work daily to maintain the safety and efficiency of the most complex airspace system in the world. We work together, have each other’s backs, and fight for what is right without backing down. I am proud to call myself a NATCA member and honored to have spent almost my entire career representing my brothers and sisters. It would be the most incredible honor and privilege of my career to earn your vote for NATCA President in the 2021 election.
Elected representatives have a responsibility to connect with the membership and to understand their desire for the direction of our Union. Though the election seems a long way off, the membership deserves ample opportunities to get to know the candidates and their vision for the future. We will be rolling out forums, facility visits, and ideas in the coming months so you can make an informed decision when you receive your ballot.
We have a lot of work ahead of us, and over the next several months, I will share more about my vision for NATCA while hearing what is important to you. Please do not hesitate to contact my team or me with any ideas, questions, or concerns you have. If you are ready to support me for NATCA President, I will graciously accept your support and I would appreciate a written endorsement. A thoughtful and educated vote is one of the greatest honors and responsibilities a Union member can earn. Thank you for your consideration and for taking the time to learn more about me.
