I’ve been involved in North Aurora for the past seven years, serving three years on the Plan Commission and the past four years on the Village Board.
It takes some time to learn the ropes and I’ve got that learning curve under my belt. My 12 years of business experience mean that I know how to create a budget and stay within it and I think that my strategic planning skills are an asset to the Village.
Just finishing my 2nd term, I bring Village knowledge of the business we are currently involved in. Prior to Being a Trustee , I was Chairman of the Police Commission and Also a former member of the Planning commission. Operating my own Landscaping business , I bring a common sense business approach to issues. I am involved in the Lions Club, coach Baseball, work through out the Village. I feel I have a good pulse on Village issues and communicate well to the residents.
I am a 20 year resident of North Aurora and care deeply about my family’s living community.
And I have supported my community over the years in the following ways:
Volunteer baseball manager/coach Aurora Boys Baseball, 65 E. Downer Pl. Aurora, IL 60507 (2006-present)

I have worked for the State of Illinois for more than 36 years and have been observing state and local politics for that length of time. As some one who is directly influenced by decisions of elected officials I have stayed aware of what our elected officials are doing and also aware of the process of how things are accomplished.
