PROFESSIONAL: Certified professional guardian and homemaker.

 

POLITICAL: First run for office.

 

PRIORITY: The current council plans to balance our budget by closing parks and recreation facilities, installing parking meters, putting up red-light cameras and raising indirect taxes. These ideas are all destructive. It is my aim to generate ideas that are constructive. The current strategy reflects a failure to recognize the many possibilities that our unique position gives us.
