Why are you running and why should you be nominated? Our communities and citizens are over taxed and spending is too high. I am the candidate of choice because I have the Experience, Work Hard and Give Back to the County I grew up in.
What is the most important issue facing your county and how would you handle it? Taxes and Expenses are still the most important issue. We need to do more than just balance the budget and hold the status quo on politician salaries. We need to reduce budgets and salaries and eliminate expenses where we can.
What other issues do you want to focus on as a county board member? How would you approach those issues? District 11 is a high growth and development corridor. I fought hard for the citizens during the I-55 corridor rezoning plan and will continue to do so fighting for the citizens of district 11.
