On the Record

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

I have been a Barrington Hills Village Trustee for twelve years. I have Chaired Building and Grounds, Roads & Bridges and Public Safety.

What are your top two or three priorities if elected?

A) Preserving 5 - Acres, which is paramount in maintaining open space and minimizing housing density. B) Preserving Village Boarders from erosion; which keeps our Zoning laws stronger and helps with better relationships with surrounding Governments. C) Financial management is most important today because of less and less moneys coming into our coffers.

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

Yes, I would support freezing our taxing levies. In the past four years we have not raised our tax levy; this is why we still have AAA rating.

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

The building Permit Requirements. People are building out buildings and additions to close to lot lines without them. This causes soil, engineering, electrical and septic plains to go unviewed.

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

Boards willingness to keep the Village under budget during the last four years.

Why should voters elect you to office?

I have lived in this community for sixty years and grew up knowing most of our founding fathers. Because of this I feel a greater understanding of what those men intended this Equine Community to look like and I will not let all their work go for not. This is why I am running; to Preserve the Past and Protect the Future of Barrington Hills.
