If elected, what is the single biggest issue that you will address in your home ward?
It is hard to come up with one single issue for this ward. I can sum it up that I will continue to address the concerns of the residents of Ward 3. The majority of complaints are quality of life issues; future housing construction; and vehicles issues, such as speeding, wrong-way drivers and ATVs.
What is the single biggest issue that the City Council must address?
Smart growth throughout the city. This includes our firehouse consolidation, parking issues and future construction.
What initiative are you most proud of from your previous term?
I pushed for the City Council to address the Beacon Pool. I am happy to report that the pool was opened this summer after years of being closed and being filled with dirty water. This summer our residents and neighbors enjoyed a wonderful pool season and we look forward to many more.
What skills or experience qualifies you to serve as a council member?
I have been a resident of Beacon for almost 30 years. I got involved in politics after being my neighborhood advocate for quality of life issues. I am a Certified Financial Planner and have worked in the financial securities industry for over 20 years.
