What’s behind your decision to run?
I thoroughly enjoy helping Brownstown residents solve problems and work through town-related issues. I have witnessed and been involved with plans and projects in the town of Brownstown the past nine years and want to be a part of the town’s continuous improvement in the future.
What are your qualifications?
Previous manufacturing, planning, customer service and supervisory opportunities along with the accounting education have prepared me to conduct the town of Brownstown’s business effectively.
What is the role of the clerk-treasurer position when it comes to conducting the town’s business?
The clerk-treasurer’s role is to operate and report the town financial business to the pleasure of the Brownstown Town Council, including receipt of all funds and money, paying all invoices and claims, payroll for all town employees, planning and supervising projects, servicing all customer needs and answering or reporting to all town, county and state business requests.
What has been your campaign strategy?
This campaign revolves around my past actions and commitment to continuous improvement of the town of Brownstown. Some of the positive changes the past nine years include new business starts, property revitalization, new buildings, storm drainage, increased police protection, parks and recreation updates, streets, lighting and sidewalk improvements, and all of these areas continue to be addressed and improved.
What are voters telling you?
Voters have been encouraging, and I encourage everyone to go vote in the local election, be it early voting opportunities or on Nov. 5, to continue to support Brownstown in every way.
