On the Record
What experiences do you have that make you a good candidate for office?
I am currently serving as a Park District Commissioner. I have been in the field of education for 28 years, the past 23 years living in St. Charles and working in District 303. The work I do as an educator requires collaboration with others to achieve goals and that skill transfers to being a good Board member. I have embraced the spirit of helping our students and can continue that passion through the Park District. Living and working in the community, taking advantage of Park District programs, and appreciating open space as an active adult are all experiences that I bring to the Board.
What are your top three priorities if elected?
As a Commissioner, I want to continue to support the mission of the Park District to enrich the quality of life of Park District residents through excellence in programs, parks, facilities, and services, and use my influence as an educator to connect our children to our community through volunteering.
Would you support freezing your taxing district’s levy until housing prices rebound? Why or why not?
This would be a well informed decision that I would make in collaboration with other Board members.
What one decision by the park district board do you most disagree with and why?
The Park District is diligent in providing programs, parks, facilities, and services to the community. Any concerns brought forward to the Park District Board of Commissioners are addressed and a decision is made based on the best interest of the Park District residents. I’m supportive of this process and the decisions that have been made.
What was the biggest accomplishment of the board in the past year?
In cooperation with the River Corridor Foundation, work toward the completion of the Bob Leonard Walkway and the beautification of that area by the river.
Why should voters elect you to office?
I’m knowledgeable of our community and passionate about our children. I’m committed to working with the Board to continue its mission, which is to enrich the lives of Park District residents.
