Civil Engineer, Village of Clarendon Hills
On the Record
What experiences do you have that make you a good candidate for office?
I have a tremendous amount of experience dealing with IDOT and the County on transportation issues. I also have a wealth of drainage improvement knowledge – as I was able to apply in helping the folks on Nancy Lane solve their problem. I am also very familiar with the comprehensive planning process. Finally, I will continue to use my twenty-five plus years’ experience in local government to provide our citizens with the best services for the lowest cost.
What are your top three priorities if elected?
1. Complete the implementation of our comprehensive plan. 2. Hire a Village Administrator 3. Be actively involved with Kane County’s Rt. 47 / Burlington roundabout to protect the Village’s interests.
Would you support freezing your taxing district’s levy until housing prices rebound? Why or why not?
If we had one, I would.
What one decision by the village board do you most disagree with and why?
We contested too many of the initial disconnection petitions.
What was the biggest accomplishment of the board in the past year?
Completing the comprehensive plan. The process was very exciting as so many residents participated and added their voices to the final product. But, it’s just a beginning. We now must change our ordinances, update our codes and develop an implementation system which will transform the vision into reality over the next twenty years.
Why should voters elect you to office?
I offer a unique combination of technical knowledge which the Village can, and has, tapped with a passion for our community and in protecting our semi-rural landscape. I also have the experience of having served one term plus one year during which I have assisted us in getting Federal funding for our roads, helped to develop our trail plan and added my expertise to developing solutions to chronic drainage problems which some of our residents had been experiencing for years.
