Contact information: 505-419-0649
1. Describe your platform and why you are running for office?
I am running for Aztec commission to hopefully bridge the gap between city governing and the businesses and citizens. I would sincerely hope that I can bring some insight as to prioritizing the needs of this community, as I have reached out to some of Aztec’s businesses and the citizens who reside here.
I have been a business owner (three times) and have a background in accounting, and I believe this will greatly benefit my understanding of fiscal issues. Not to mention I can and have been an analytical and creative thinker.
2. What do you think is the biggest challenge facing Aztec?
I believe there are flood management issues facing our town.
Developing a more affable face for present businesses and possible new businesses
Looking into maybe creating a Research and Development team for establishing this town as a “gateway” city, since we have a National Monument right in our city, great mountain bike trails, nationally known river fishing, hiking trails, a state park (Navajo Dam/Lake) thereby establishing Aztec as a place of destination instead of a town that visitors might just drive through.
