Why should voters elect you?

"One person can make a positive difference and offer responsive, caring, experienced leadership. I have and will continue to serve our community."

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

"Fostering a safe, attractive community where businesses thrive, the community is informed and empowered, and all residents and visitors enjoy an excellent experience. This can be accomplished by collaborating with the school system and community to ensure all of our children have a positive, nurturing learning environment; improving neighborhood lighting; increasing business and community partnerships, including internship opportunities for youth; hiring more emergency personnel, firefighters and police officers for our streets; fostering appropriate planning for infrastructure, public services and resources to accommodate coming growth at Fort Meade; promoting youth-related programs and activities; and increasing appropriate traffic calming."
