Meet the Candidate

We are a diverse community with many needs and opinions. However, recent events and challenges have brought economic issues to the forefront. Recently so many people have been hurt including small businesses, employees, non-profits, retirees, and even governmental agencies at every level. With budgetary shortfalls, lost wages, and vanishing profits almost every person has been impacted or knows someone that has been hurt. Having a candidate with proven business experience, an understanding of budgets, and a strong financial background is important. I believe my experience and knowledge set me apart from other candidates.
