What qualifies you for this position?

A strong desire to be of service to my community and the common good of St. Clair County; in depth knowledge of my constituents and the "ills" that have plagued us far too long -- in essence, lack of leadership.

What is the top issue in your race, and how would you address it?

My top issue is neighborhood stabilization. This will require extensive networking to stop the decline and extensive demolition and redevelopment in most of District 2. This effort must include infrastructure and adequate public safety.
