Why did you run for office? To give back
to the community and serve the people and to be a part of moving Southington in
the right direction for generations to come.
If elected, what would be your primary areas of focus? I would focus on making Southington an
affordable place to live by keeping taxes low and looking for ways to increase
our tax base through smart economic development.
What do you feel is the biggest issue facing Southington today? Maintaining our fiscal responsibility and our
character of the town in tact. It is
important to fully understand the long-term effects of our decisions and not
focus solely on short term results.
What skills do you have that you could bring to the community? My professional
skills as an accountant has taught me that relationships, teamwork, and
hardwork are essential to the success of any organization. I will bring these traits to the Council to
ensure we are always working in the best interest for the citizens.
