On the Record

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

I am a life long resident and have worked in the village for 27 years.My family has over 30 years of community service and I have benefitted from there experience.I also interact with the residents and hear their concerns through volunteer and business relations.

What are your top two or three priorities if elected?

I would like a more open form of government,both between department heads and the public.The senoir/handicapped bus really needs to come back to teh village I have heard from many that the township bus is good, but not as effieciant as the old fox lake bus.And finally we need an economic developer is needed to fill up the vacant properties all over the village

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

Yes I would, in these tough economic times people are struggling to make ends meet, they don’t need more taxes.

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

Giving a 150,000 dollar tax incentive to the 13th gas station in the village limits.

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

The new Thorntons gas station I guess?

Why should voters elect you to office?

Like I said before I have lived here my whole life and I know a lot of people, which makes me very approachable for residents to tell me their concerns.Both personal and business contacts.I have volunteered my time coaching softball and being a cheer dad for my two daughters,seeing their needs and the parents needs as well.
