Message from the Mayor

As a life-long resident of Apex, my love for my hometown continues to elevate. I have been fortunate to have worked alongside many citizens, business owners, and town employees to make positive impact as a citizen and Town of Apex employee. I officially retired at the rank of Captain with the Apex Police Department in April 2019. My passion to serve has not ended.

Today we are challenged to ensure the Apex of tomorrow is even better than the Apex of today. I believe we can enhance the quality of life for our fellow Apex citizens with compassion while focusing on community and commerce. With these three pillars, we can build a bridge to a bright future. I look forward to serving as your mayor.
