What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction? "Manassas Park is a city that is largely dependent on real estate taxes to fund those city services that improve our citizens' quality of life. Smart economic development is the key to the city's long-term financial future. Park Center, Manassas Park's new downtown area, will provide essential businesses that will generate additional revenue for the city. Additionally, Park Center will provide the economic engine for future development and redevelopment in the city. This smart economic development will enable Manassas Park to meet its future needs while continuing to reduce the real estate tax rate for our citizens."

Why should voters elect you? "I will continue to listen to citizens and take action to ensure long-term planning and financial stability that adequately funds public safety, education and transportation."
