OVER THIRTY YEARS OF LEADERSHIP AND ADVOCACY
Born and raised in Ohio, I moved many times over the years for career and education. But I thank my Colorado-native wife every day for “dragging” me to Colorado. I fell in love with Windsor the first time I saw it back in 2007, and moved here as soon as my career allowed. I have lived here with my wife, Julie Babcock, since 2015.
In the early part of my legal career I negotiated and drafted contracts for complex commercial transactions. I eventually became the Chief Legal Officer and Executive Vice President at two finance companies, and held the same positions at Frontier Airlines in Denver, and at Midwest Airlines in Milwaukee.
It was during my time at Frontier that I first came to Windsor. I swore I would return someday. I retired from Johnson Controls in Milwaukee as Chief Legal Officer of the energy efficiency division in 2015, making my move to Windsor possible.
Within weeks of moving to Windsor I applied and was selected to serve as a volunteer on the Windsor Board of Adjustment and Appeals. I remained on that Board until my election to the Windsor Town Board in April of 2018. I am currently a volunteer with the Windsor Art & Heritage Museum. I am also on the Advisory Board of UNC’s Monfort College of Business, President of the Water Valley Homeowners’ Association, and on the Board of Water Valley Metro District No. 2. I have volunteered as a legislative assistant for Colorado Representative Perry Buck.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland and my law degree from the University of Washington in Seattle. I have audited classes in political science at CSU, including courses in Comparative Government and State and Local Government.
My Commitment to Education
Education is critical to the development of our citizens and the success of our Town. My wife and I spent a third of our lives pursuing our own higher education and professional degrees. That's why we decided to donate my 2018 and 2019 Town Board stipend of $8.000 to the Weld RE-4 Foundation. We established a scholarship for students who will be the first in their family to pursue higher education, whether college or trade school.
