Why are you running for office or seeking re-election?
I want to continue to provide thorough analysis on complicated issues around the transfer of our water system, the updating of our Telecom law and the review of some of our outdated local laws. I also want to continue to ensure different viewpoints are encouraged and respected.

What in your personal, civic or professional experience recommends your election or return to office?
In my 2 years on the board I have worked hard on some of the more complicated and technical issues facing our Village. I have demonstrated a willingness to dig deeply into complicated issues and work a problem through to solution.

What would be your top three priorities if you are elected or re-elected?
1. Complete transfer of water system. I continue to meet with the Mayor, interested parties and other local elected officials to resolve this 80 year old issue.

2. Pass updated telecommunications law. I have worked with the Village Attorney and outside lawyers and experts to make sure we have the most up to date telecommunications law possible.

3. Continue to seek and present alternative viewpoints on the board and ask the hard questions to get to the best answers.
