Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a long-time resident. I raised my two successful daughters here, both of who work in healthcare, and I have an amazing son-in-law. 41 years ago I opened my accounting business where I specialize in tax, financial, and business consulting. I help people thrive during bust economies that are inherent to our area. I love helping people and am great at what I do. This is why I have been in business for so long.
What do you see as the most important issues in your candidacy and how will you address them?
Our budget is of the utmost concern. Everything we want or need boils down to having the money to pay for it. Our current budget is a 3.6 million deficit. Budget balancing and money management are in my wheelhouse, where my skills outshine those of the other four candidates. I will work alongside our city council to find and cut hidden waste so we can remedy this situation without costing employees their jobs. I will also work to bring in new businesses and new sources of revenue. Contracts will be awarded fairly and people will be treated fairly. I will work to stop conflicts of interest in our city government. I believe in the transparency of local government. You have a right to know how your tax dollars are spent. If you vote differently, you will get the changes you want.
