Why should voters elect you?

"I will bring 20 years of private-sector experience restructuring inefficient bureaucracy to my service as council member, which I will use to eliminate government waste."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"The two fundamental problems that plague the District as a whole are wastefully inefficient government and residents losing control of their communities. These two problems are connected because government entities that are operating poorly don't serve the people or protect their interests. My focus as council member will be to make sure all of our government agencies are efficient and to seek the elimination of any entity that is ineffective and a drain on our resources. Any plan that we attempt to implement will be fruitless if we don't fix this flaw in our government."
