If you're elected or re-elected, what will be your top priority?
My top priority is to ensure that Farmville continues to move forward, not backward. We need to move towards a more inclusive community, increase infrastructure and continue the popularity of our cultural events.
If you're elected or re-elected, how will you involve your constituents in the process of making decisions?
I am a good listener, and I will not make an ill-informed decision. I will weigh ALL opinions and options before I cast a vote on any issue placed before me.
Why should voters choose you for the position you're running for?
I always thought Farmville was the little town that "could." I want to change that. I want to make it the little town that "would." I want to take chances (within reason) and think outside the box. We have a unique opportunity to make Farmville a destination and an example of what a true community can be.
Which three things about you do you most want voters to know?
First and foremost, I am running in honor and memory of my former youth minister, mentor and dear friend, Commissioner Brenda Elks, who passed away in April of this year. Brenda was a tremendous asset to Farmville, and I wish to continue her work. I am honest, loyal and trustworthy. I can be tough but I will be fair.
Is there anything else about you that you wish to tell voters?
I appreciate the opportunity to tell everyone a little about myself. What I do not have in experience in the political arena, I more than make up for in passion. Let's get to work!
