Why are you running for Village Council?

I love the village of Flat Rock and will work diligently to serve our residents, rather than outside interests or groups. I bring almost 40 years of corporate organization and implementation experience, as well as the ability to forge consensus between divergent groups in order to achieve the greater good.

I believe in transparency in government, fiscal responsibility, low tax rates, strong property rights as provided for by the U.S. Constitution, and soliciting the input of our residents, both full-time and part-time, before making major decisions concerning our village.
