Upon retiring from a nearly fifty year career in transportation in 2015, John and his wife, Patti, settled in downtown Little Rock. Although they had no ties to Little Rock, they were impressed with Little Rock’s attractions, museums, events, and restaurants particularly in the downtown neighborhood. They wanted to be where they could walk to amenities, have transit available, and be active. John was also attracted by the region’s bicycle trails, and their dog Ridge loves the MacArthur Park Dog Park as well as walking around the neighborhood. Downtown Little Rock fit the bill.
John is a board member of the Firehouse Hostel and Museum. He is a regular participant in the Mac Park Group and transportation groups. John grew up in Pennsylvania. He holds a bachelors degree from New York University and a masters from the University of Georgia.
Long-time community advocate.
