What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction? "The most visible challenge is healing the rift in Herndon caused by debate over using public money to create the day worker hiring site near residential neighborhoods. The most critical problem is minimizing the impact of another double-digit increase in residential property assessments. Herndon's government must limit tax increases to the rate of inflation and fund capital projects supported by a majority of the community."

Why should voters elect you? "I am an advocate for responsible taxation and government spending, strategic planning, protecting our heritage, and improving our quality of life and sense of community."
