Retired Postal Clerk
On the Record
What experiences do you have that make you a good candidate for office?
I have served as village trustee for the last 6 years. I am a resident for 34 years and I am familiar with the residents and their needs. I am also serving as the treasure for Neighbors Helping Neighbors, a 501(C)3 charity. NHN is dedicated to assisting those residents who are in need and may have immediate help.
What are your top two or three priorities if elected?
As the parks trustee for the village I have the following projects that I am working on: A pier to be placed at the lake for fishing and re-surfacing the baseball diamond so it is playable.
Would you support freezing your taxing district’s levy until housing prices rebound? Why or why not?
At this time we have a great need to finish the storm water project. Many residents have, through the years, had significant flooding problems. I would vote to freeze only if it didn’t hamper the storm water project.
What one decision by the village board do you most disagree with and why?
Expanding the Village payroll is my only concern. We must keep our spending within our annual budget.
What was the biggest accomplishment of the board in the past year?
Building a new Village Hall for all the residents to enjoy.
Why should voters elect you to office?
I am familiar with the needs of the villager and I listen to their needs and concerns. My voting record is based on this resident feedback.
