Kevin was born in Maryland and as an adult moved to Sussex County in 1974, where he lived near Fenwick Island, Selbyville, Seaford and has resided east of Milton since 1986. Being the first in his family to attend college, by working his way through, he understands and is not afraid of hard work. Utilizing his Civil Engineering technology background, he worked actively in the Well Drilling, Geo-technical and Water Treatment and Supply industry for over 18 years, while becoming a Partner in a successful business. As his interest expanded, he joined a Mid Atlantic Civil Engineering firm and eventually became a Principal in the business. His next 16 years of managing Surveying, Water & Wastewater Projects, Land Planning, Road Designs and Regulatory and Ordinance review in multiple states has provided him with a wealth of knowledge. Being a Board Member of this successful business has made him refine his abilities to "Think Outside of the Box" in planning for the future both in technical and business issues while fully understanding the needs to be able to meet payrolls and provide a future for his employees. He was an initiating member of a group of regulators and legislators to initiate the requirement of licensing of Potable Water Operators in the State of Delaware to promote Safe Drinking Water throughout the State, and was the first Water Operator ever licensed in the State. He has strong beliefs in insuring that our environment is safe for future generations and is a Delaware Department of Natural Resources Certified Construction Reviewer. Kevin is currently a semi-retired Business Consultant, and has limited his Clients predominantly to Kent County over the last 6 years so that he can represent the residents of Sussex County as a County Councilman without a Conflict of Interest. Kevin has been a student of the Sussex County Government for over 20 years and desires to be able to help the residents of Sussex County to maintain a high Quality of Life for future generations.
