Why are you running for office or seeking re-election?
What in your personal, civic or professional experience recommends your election or return to office?
I have been involved in customer service in every job I've ever had, from retail management to research librarian, from editor at business magazines specializing in customer relationships to freelance editor delivering high-quality work for customers. My studies in archives & records management as part of the Master's program in Library Science further make me ideally suited for all of the Town Clerk's responsibilities. As a longtime columnist for the local paper I have observed the way the town operates and am well known to many people in town.
What would be your top three priorities if you are elected or re-elected?
1. Move Lewisboro into the 21st century with a more focused, accelerated effort to make services and customer interaction available online.
2. Look at ways to efficiently make all of the town's information repositories accessible through a single point of access, so that the Town Clerk serves as a Chief Information Officer while maintaining the integrity and security of each source.
3. Categorize, structure and index information so that it is easy to locate systematically, without relying on any one person's memory and without things falling through the cracks.
