On the Record
What experiences do you have that make you a good candidate for office?
4 years as Township Clerk, 5 years as Chief Financial Officer for a hospital, 4 years on the board of Batavia MainStreet
What are your top two or three priorities if elected?
1. Provide a fresh look at how the Township is providing its services. 2. As more areas get annexed into the city, the need for some of the township services decreases as they are taken over by the city (i.e. road maintenance). So, I would like to examine the possibility of rejoining with Geneva Township to reduce our tax burden.
Would you support freezing your taxing district’s levy until housing prices rebound? Why or why not?
Yes. The taxpayers are getting taxed out of their homes. The Township can provide its mandated services without an increase in the levy.
What one decision by the township board do you most disagree with and why?
Township salary increases.
What was the biggest accomplishment of the board in the past year?
Why should voters elect you to office?
We need someone on the Township Board who will question the way things are always done. Times have changed and the Township needs to change too.
