Jim moved to Colorado in 2015 from Pennsylvania and is happy to call Castle Pines his home. He graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson with degree in Mechanical Engineering and started work with Singer Kearfott, designing guidance systems for military and civil applications. He transitioned to working for Lockheed Martin where he has been working for the last 34 years as a Design Engineer focused on the design, manufacturing and development of Antennae, Power Sub-Systems and Avionics for Military, Civil and Commercial satellite customers. Currently, Jim is a Lockheed Martin Fellow working across multiple business areas including Rotary Wing, Aero, Space and Missile systems.
Jim is an active participant in local government, having been elected to the Castle Pines Charter Commission which produced a home rule charter ultimately approved by Castle Pines voters in 2018. Since early 2022, he has served on the Douglas County Science and Cultural Commission which reviews grant applications that support the events which provide for the advancement and preservation of visual arts, performing arts, cultural history, and natural sciences. He was recently called on the 7-county SCFD panel that is tasked to ensure that each county assesses grant applications in fair and equal manner and to meet Colorado State SCFD guidelines.
Jim believes that his background in engineering, and his desire to be involved in the community to find solutions to current water district issues we have experienced over the past few years, will be beneficial to the community. He understands how to plan large projects and has the experience to evaluate solutions, plan and complete the work that needs to be done over the next few years to ensure Castle Pines North Metro Water District can continue to meet its obligations to the community.
