What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction? "Herndon's most urgent issue is overcrowding. There is a very high number of overcrowding complaints on the books today. The town's residential occupancy regulations state: 'Over-occupancy of dwelling units creates health and safety dangers to home occupants and their neighbors.' Redefining family, creating anti-solicitation ordinances and adding community inspectors have had little effect in reducing the overcrowding case backlog. We must apply cause-and-effect problem solving. Is overcrowding an effect caused by another underlying condition? I believe it is, and I will move to identify this cause and work to resolve it."

Why should voters elect you? "I listen to the people, have no self-interest and love our small town. I will work hard to maintain its charm, history and neighborhoods."
