|Info||I have successfully spearheaded numerous civic projects and I'm experienced with committee processes, efficient budgeting, economic development strategies, environmental issues, multi-million dollar public works projects, & real world business practices. I have a proven track record of working with people from diverse viewpoints & backgrounds without prejudice. |
I have endless energy, I'm a quick learner, and I've donated thousands of hours of civic service to my communities. When I make a commitment, I keep it. And I'm not motivated by power, control, money, or party politics. So I'll be able to get to the root of the issues and make logical decisions based on facts.
