Why are you running for office?
I have advocated for the youth of my county and on their behalf I want to end the opioid and heroin scourge in our county. I first moved into Eldersburg in 1969 and there are several projects I want to implement as well as make some changes in the community.
Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
What will be your top priority in elected to this position?
Righting the traffic congestion in Eldersburg.
What is the biggest issue facing your county?
School safety and school closings.
What is your position on taxes and spending?
We’re taxed enough already and need to spend those dollars much more wisely.
What is your position on a county tax cap?
I believe where we are at is right and if there are opportunities to lower the tax base I’m in.
What is your position on land use issues?
We need to continue to protect our rural heritage through land preservation program. We also must look at expanding our recreation fields and parks.
What is your position on public safety?
School safety is priority one. Reviewing and redesigning the entrances to our schools needs thorough and immediate action. No parent should send their child to school and wonder if they will return home.
