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

“As Shiloh continues to grow, important decisions will have to be made concerning development and the pros and cons that come with each proposal. Having been on the board for most of 12 years has afforded me valuable experience in evaluating the concerns of both the developer and the village. Change is inevitable and it takes hard work to ensure that change is positive. It is important to maintain the strong financial position the village is in. The board has been careful to spend within the budget and respect that hard times can always be around the corner. We are prepared to sacrifice to help Illinois overcome huge deficits. However, we are confident that Shiloh will still have excellent police and fire protection.”
