About MARTY

Marty is a Christian, husband, father of four boys and has dedicated his life to serving the greatest nation in the world and his community.

He is a veteran of the United States Coast Guard Reserve, where he achieved the rank of Chief Petty Officer, with over 20 years of service.  His first mobilization occurred after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, for the homeland defense and civil support missions to secure our nation during Operation Noble Eagle.  In 2005, he would be deployed to support Operation Enduring in the U.S. Southern Command Theater of Operations, then again in 2010 to U.S. Central Command for the transition from Operation Iraqi Freedom to Operation New Dawn in Kuwait.  During his time with the Coast Guard, Marty served in the expeditionary community for 8 years, in a federal law enforcement capacity in the National Capital Region, and as an accomplished instructor for the Coast Guard Special Missions Training Center.  Marty is a graduate of the Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Academy, and retired from the Coast Guard Reserve on July 1, 2022.

 

After over 14 years of selfless service to the City of Lynchburg, Marty transitioned into a leadership role in the private sector with Carillon Clinic, the largest healthcare organization in the southwest Virginia region.  Transitioning to the private sector opened the opportunity for his bid for Lynchburg City Council.  Marty also has experience running small businesses in the construction, real estate and development sector, and is currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration at Liberty University.  He has also volunteered his time building homes for disabled veterans, and trying to improve our public safety system in the City of Lynchburg.

Marty is prepared to bring his intimate knowledge of what he has seen work in the Lynchburg City Government, and what needs to be improved, combined with his business and leadership acumen to prioritize the people of our city over the bureaucracy by keeping our citizens safe, eliminating wasteful spending while preserving core services, and appointing a school board that honors parents rights in education, and listens to teachers while empowering them to deliver world-class education to our city’s youth.  Marty’s wife, Melinda, is a Kindergarten Teacher in Lynchburg City Schools, and a two-time Teacher of the Year of Bedford Hills elementary.  As a public school parent and teacher’s husband, he’s committed to ensuring our schools focus their efforts on academics over the bloated bureaucracy in the Lynchburg City Schools Administration Building that failed many of our youth and families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2007, Marty dedicated his professional civilian life to serving the City of Lynchburg in the Fire Department.  During his 14-year career with the Lynchburg Fire Department (LFD), he became a Nationally Registered Paramedic, and achieved the rank of Fire Captain.  

During his time with LFD, Marty continued his passion of teaching, coaching and mentoring others that he first developed during his Coast Guard Service.  He became an instructor of various disciplines in the fire service and EMS, and served in various collateral duty assignments to improve service delivery for the community he swore an oath to protect in Lynchburg, and enhance the working conditions for his fellow firefighters.  Marty served in the following capacities in addition to his regular duties:

  • Strategic Planning Committee
  • Health and Safety Committee
  • Accreditation Workgroup
  • Hostile Event Response Workgroup
  • Data-Analysis Team
Marty’s background in military operations, homeland security, law enforcement, emergency medical services, firefighting and incident command led to his selection as an adjunct instructor for the Texas State University Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) program.  ALERRT is a Department of Justice funded training program for public safety agencies that is the only national standard response curriculum for Active Shooter Events recognized by the FBI.  His passion for saving lives led to this endeavor, as he wanted to ensure the City of Lynchburg was preparing our first responders with the best research-based training in the nation to save lives in the event that a hostile active attack incident were to strike our city.
