What experience will help you in this job?

I have over 10 years experience with developing and interpreting policies and regulations and with analyzing the legal, social and economic impact of policies and regulations on governmental stakeholders, including industry and consumers. I also have extensive training and experience in customer service, emergency preparedness, recruitment and retention of the best and brightest employees, conflict resolution, effective communication and community engagement. President/CEO - Avensong Community Association, Milton.

If elected, what will be your priorities?
I will support smart growth and development through consistent application of existing comprehensive land-use policies and adherence to "no new sewer" policies. I will be conservative with your tax dollars and will not support a tax increase. Outstanding, fully equipped police and fire services, repair and enhancement of Milton's infrastructure and development of recreational facilities will top my list of spending priorities.

What's the best thing an elected official in the post you are seeking can do for your community?

The most important thing an elected official can do is listen to his or her constituency and ensure that the citizens' collective vision is reflected in the decision-making process.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what one thing (not a person) would you want to have?

I would want to have a picture of my family. Seeing them every day would give me the patience and fortitude I would need to survive.

Alan is an excellent choice for Council and is not tied to any opportunist group, SHERIFF, posse or fab four.

Alan, I've noticed something interesting here. You mention your family as being the most important to you if stranded on a desert island. I noticed that all of the PEOPLE's CHOICE (Bailey, Hewitt, Tart) have said the same thing. The DEVELOPER's CHOICE (Santi, O'Brien, Mohrig) have said the most important to have with them were other things and don't mention family. That says so much about a person right there. I wonder if anyone one else notices this??

I'm so glad I've had the opportunity to get to know you. You will represent us well here in Milton. You've got the pulse of this place. You are honest. You care. And, you deserve a chance to show us all what you will do for Milton.
