What qualifies you for this position?
“I am currently serving as District 2 Trustee after being appointed by Mayor Cornwell due to a vacancy in the position. I have helped to improve the village by using your tax dollars wisely by using common sense and making tough decisions when called for. I have been a pharmacy manager for 26 years and work well with various companies, customers and employees on a daily basis. If elected I promise to be a good steward of your money by investing in the future success of the Village of Cahokia.”
What is the top issue in your race, and how would you address it?
“I feel the top issue is the safety of all our residents so they can feel safe to raise their families in this community as I have raised mine in the village. This can be accomplished by support of our police department, churches and the youth of our village. On that note I feel that we need to clean up trash and derelict property throughout the village with all involved and support keeping this the beautiful and historical community it has been and will be for generations to come.”
