Service to God, Country, Family and Community is the core of Tony's journey through life.
From two terms of duty in the United States Army including his commission as an Army Chaplain, to his groundbreaking research on a community faith based model to reduce Veteran Suicide, to his love of teaching students as a faculty member at Towson University, Tony believes public service is a noble endeavor who demands our very best efforts.
The 6th Councilmanic district is the core of Baltimore County, from Charles Street in the west, to Philadelphia Road in the east. It includes Towson, Loch Raven Village, Hillendale, The Oaks, Parkville, Overlea and Rosedale. A father of a young BCPS student, Tony is keenly aware of the need for great performing schools in every part of the 6th district, and throughout the entirety of Baltimore County. An educator for almost two decades, Tony knows the better we prepare our children for academic success, their long-term financial security greatly increases exponentially so they can fully realize the American Dream.
The great neighborhoods within the 6th Councilmanic district are struggling because of the rise in violent crime. Everyday the local news tells us heartbreaking stories of people who are murdered in Baltimore. Major thoroughfares such as York Road, Harford Road, Belair Road and Philadelphis Road connect the families of the 6th Councilmanic district to reality of the streets of Baltimore. Every community, every family, every child is important and should be protected. As a father, and as your neighbor, Tony will work tirelessly to reduce violent crime across our communities.
Tony’s doctoral research (Liberty University) entitled Every Life Matters to God has been downloaded on five continents, 36 countries and 19 institutions including the Navy Network Information Center, the DoD Network Information Center, the National Health Service, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Homeland Security. Tony presented his research at the 2017 U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)/U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Suicide Prevention Conference in Denver, Colorado hosted by the Defense Suicide Prevention Office (DSPO).
