1. Describe your platform and why you are running for office.

I believe that my greatest attribute is my ability to question. Years of experience have given me a historical background of what works and what doesn’t. Often we are going in the wrong direction, both from budgetary and common sense perspective. Serving as my constituents’ voice at the table, it is my duty to challenge the direction of our community if I feel that mistakes are being made. I also feel offering alternatives is critical, and I do that often and with conviction.

2. What do you think is the biggest challenge facing Farmington?

I believe it is simply the uncertainty of the future. There is great instability in our economy. We need to feel confident we will have jobs; that we can afford to live here without burdensome taxes and utility rates. We need to know our drinking water supply is not in jeopardy. We must feel confident our streets are safe. I have tried to make Farmington the best place to call home and if re-elected will continue to do so.
