What experience will help you in this job?
As a Certified Public Account, you're always looking at what is behind the numbers. That is a critical skill needed on the Milton council. Also, I have a reputation for consensus-building, listening and working well with others. Those skills are needed on the council. We need a council that puts the community's interests ahead of disagreements. You can disagree without always being disagreeable.
If elected, what will be your priorities?
Protecting Milton's quality of life; managing expenditures to keep taxes low; helping the council refocus on issues that truly matter to the community; avoiding the over-development mistakes of our neighboring communities; and making sure the services we deliver are customer (i.e., taxpayer) friendly and community-oriented.
What's the best thing an elected official in the post you are seeking can do for your community?
Focus on quality of life. This brought the current residents to Milton and that is why we overwhelmingly voted to create the city. We must preserve it at all costs.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what one thing (not a person) would you want to have?
A Milton lifestyle ... but in the end, that can only be had with its people.
