When Chad first ran for office in 2016, he did so with a commitment to invest in the city’s parks, playgrounds and recreational areas, which had been severely neglected for decades. Although the idea was mocked by some then-current elected officials, he knew that having safe, modern facilities would enhance and strengthen our neighborhoods and enrich the lives of our citizens, while making Wheeling even more attractive to new residents and businesses.

He led the way, and championed the investment of over $3 million to renew and rejuvenate our public recreational spaces. From neighborhood playgrounds and baseball fields, to pickleball, tennis and basketball courts, to neighborhood pools, dog parks, and splash pads, our parks and recreational assets have undergone an amazing transformation that have had a profound impact on both children and adults alike.

As mayor, Chad will continue to maintain and improve our parks and recreational spaces.
