Why do you want this job?
While the position of commissioner is far
more than just fixing roads, we all want better roads, especially in areas that have been
neglected for years. I have a vested interest
in the community and the well-being of residents as a whole.
Special concerns
The future and financial well-being of our
district relies on voting and discussion. Our
district has not been consulted when it
comes to decision-making in the past. It
seems as though citizens only want to meet
when emergency meetings are called, so citizens need to be more active voicing their
thoughts.

Statement to voters: As commissioner of District 4, I will make a conscious effort to not only be a part of the community, but involve the community. It is my mission to make a safe and prosperous place to live, and re-establish relationships between these communities.
