Why are you running?: New blood needs to be in office for the promotion of change. To show everyone not just the last generation but future generations that every voice counts change can be had and that this is not a single persons rule.

What is the biggest issue facing St. Clair County, and how should elected officials and county staff approach it?: Change in general: the way things are ran now just shows things are being done wrong. We need new people young views and forward thinking people. This means that we need to hear the voice of the people ask them what changes they want and make them happen.
