For 15 years, Erik and his family have been the proud owners of a century-old house in Staunton’s Newtown Historic District. Erik recognizes that protection of historic buildings and other features of city design increases property values and generates tax revenues, while enhancing quality of life for our citizens.
A large supply of well maintained historic buildings is an asset that gives Staunton a competitive advantage over other areas. A historic building is precious, a resource that cannot be replaced once lost.
- That’s why Erik opposed the plan to tear down multiple historic buildings downtown to expand the Augusta County Courthouse.
- During his two terms on City Council, Erik fought to preserve our the historic character of our city.
- If you elect him to return to City Hall this November, Erik will continue to oppose any efforts to tear down historic buildings or impair the historic character of downtown and all of Staunton’s neighborhoods.
