Why should voters elect you?

"I have worked hard on issues such as trying to reduce speeding in our neighborhoods and repaving our streets. I oppose tax increases."

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

"Education. We have to make sure our teachers are paid fairly, and we need to return discipline back to our teachers and principals. We also need to continue to control growth and target the growth to areas that need to be revitalized. I also passed the property tax cap when I was first elected to the County Council, and I believe we have to fight back those who want to eliminate the property tax cap."
