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

"Rockville has the potential to become one of the nation's very best places to live and work. To achieve this goal, we must establish a sustainable balance between growth and quality of life. It is essential that we be striving for what's best for Rockville and its residents. As such, my top priorities include: 1) establishing common-sense limits on growth when roads are jammed or schools are overcrowded, and 2) enacting new zoning regulations that will ensure that the only development we allow in Rockville is that which will truly enhance our community and our residents' quality of life."

Why should voters elect you?

"With your help, I will continue working hard to keep Rockville moving forward on important priorities, including the revitalization of Rockville's Town Center. Thank you!"

Elected offices/civic activities: Planning Commissioner, city of Rockville; past president and secretary, Twinbrook Citizens Association; founder and past president, Rockville Sister City Corp.; former treasurer, Alliance for Rockville Citizens; member, Peerless Rockville Preservation Ltd.; St. Mary's Girl Scout Leader; former member, Richard Montgomery High School PTSA; former treasurer, Federally Employed Women Parklawn Chapter 244; member, Rockville Chamber of Commerce; member, League of Women Voters, Montgomery County.

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

"City of Rockville residents deserve high levels of service for their tax dollars. Important issues continue to be traffic, parking, crime, safety, property maintenance, and affordable housing.

I will make fiscal responsibility my number one priority for the good of the whole city. Services are only as good as the resources provided, if properly supervised. Priorities will be focused on neighborhoods' specific needs. I will request that city staff provide definitive cost figures before mayor and council policy decisions are made. Stricter enforcement of current ordinances is necessary. I will fight for greater community outreach to diverse volunteer groups."

Why should voters elect you?

"I want to be a good fiscal responsible mayor and see that Rockville is a great place to live, work, shop, play, and retire!"
