Why should voters elect you?
"Voters should elect me because I'm optimistic and want to see our community succeed. I also have what it takes to get the job done."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"The most urgent issue facing our jurisdiction is the level of community involvement in our public schools. By parents, students, businesses, alumni and community members all having a stake in our schools, we can ensure that our students succeed. To bring in additional funding for activities which provide an outlet for community involvement, such as athletics, we need to continue economic development. By building our taxable base, we can generate additional revenues to adequately fund our school system. This combination of increasing funds and promoting greater community involvement will pay positive dividends for years."
