On the Record

What experiences do you have that make you a good candidate for office?

I have attended nearly all the township meetings the last 4 years. I have been a Grafton resident for nearly 30 years. I have previously been Treasurer of the Huntley Jaycees, on the Board of Elders at St.John\\\'s Lutheran Church in Union and on the Board of The McHenry County Barn Preservation Association.In addition, I bring 25 years experience as a small business owner.

What are your top two or three priorities if elected?

1)End litigation. 2)Sell Haligus road property and get deed back from road district for town property. 3)Balanced budget with minimal legal expense line item.

Would you support freezing your taxing district\'s levy until housing prices rebound? Why or why not?

Absolutely!! The taxpayers are having to get by with less and so should the township.

What one decision by the township board do you most disagree with and why?

Adopting a budget with a $200,000 deficit!!! It is/was TOTALLY IRRESPONSIBLE! That decision is why Grafton is on the path of shutting down til new tax revenues come in.

What was the biggest accomplishment of the board in the past year?

Cut salaries and benefits of elected officials for the next term.

Why should voters elect you to office?

I have attended most of the meetings the last 4 years and I have a good understanding of the issues facing Grafton Township. The voters should elect officials with character and civility traits. I believe I fall into that category.
