I consider myself an extremely dedicated, hard-working and honest person and am committed to moving Freeburg forward with the best interest of the village and its residents in mind.”

This can only be accomplished by having a board that is unified and supportive of all aspects of our community. Our elected officials need to be honest, forthcoming and committed to make sure that the tax dollars of our citizens are being used wisely and efficiently. If elected, I pledge to focus on working together with the residents, elected officials and village staff of Freeburg for continued growth and successful development of our hometown and local businesses.”
