On the Record

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

As an incumbent, I have sat on the village board for the past 6 years, prior to that, I served on the Business Relations Committee, served as vice chair on the Parks and Rec Committee and I served on the planning and Zoning commission. I am president of the People for Parks Foundation of LITH and I am Secretary and President Elect for the Rotary Club of LITH.

What are your top two or three priorities if elected?

Continue working with the board and staff to make LITH the safest village in McHenry County. Continue working with staff and the board to attract businesses to LITH. By attracting the right types of businesses to LITH not only helps bring revenue to the village but offers local employment as well. Continue improving the infrastructure within the village.

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

We have been fortunate to be able to lower our levy the past two years. I will continue to work with the board and staff to look at ways to keep this levy low and still provide the same level of services to our residences.

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

There has not been a decision by the village board that I have disagreed with. This board has worked to come to a common ground on many issues of policy that effect our village.

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

Paying off our Debt! This has been a great accomplishement by the board and staff.

Why should voters elect you to office?

My dedication and passion for this village. My experience in serving the residences of the Village of LITH.
