On the Record
Why are you running for a position on the Kane County Board?
I am running because I believe I have the combination of skills, experience, and temperament that is needed to be effective as a county board member. I’m running on three principals: Accountability, Efficiency, and Innovation.
What would your top three priorities be as a board member?
My top priorities would be to freeze the tax levy, reduce the tax burden on county residents, be readily accessible to all residents and promote openness in county government.
How would you differentiate yourself from your opponent?
My experience with computer systems and software would be one area where I can differentiate myself. One of the most important issues the board will face in the coming year is a proposed multi-million dollar computer system. My background uniquely qualifies me to significantly contribute in this area. Knowledge, that could potentially save taxpayers millions of dollars.
Explain an accomplishment of yours and how it would – or does – relate to your being an effective board member.
One that comes to mind is when I was called in to resolve an issue between our customer and a vendor. My skills in evaluating the situation, producing a viable solution, and reestablishing harmony between our customer and the vendor, are skills that will serve me well on the board.
What is the greatest challenge facing your district, and what you have you done – to date – to help solve it?
As I walk and meet people, many tell me that they are concerned about sinking property values and rising tax bills. Freezing, or better yet reducing property taxes should be a priority. County government needs to become more efficient during these challenging economic times.
Why are you the best candidate for this position?
At the risk of being redundant, I have the combination of skills, experience, and temperament that is needed to be effective as a county board member. I’m running on three principals: Accountability, Efficiency, and Innovation.
