What qualifies you for this position?
“I have lived in this area all of my life and in Shiloh for 18 years, nine of which I was the village’s K-9 officer. Living here for so many years gives me a good perspective on residents’ needs. Patrolling as an officer allowed me to get to know every inch of Shiloh. I love this community and want to be part of helping it to remain the place that people want to live and work.”
What is the top issue in your race, and how would you address it?
“Shiloh has grown rapidly. We are fortunate that most of our homes are new. I would like to be a part of implementing crime free housing to help improve some of our older areas. Also I believe that enforcing property maintenance throughout Shiloh will ensure that Shiloh remains a great place to live. Infrastructure has been strained by our growth and I want to help forge the partnerships with county, township and state government to help alleviate some issues.”
