What are two key issues in your community?

I feel that we need professional talent to maintain the quality of the service of our township with the reduction of state revenue sharing that townships are experiencing. Every tax dollar needs to be spent wisely and efficiently so that the burdens will not fall onto the taxpayers in the future.

We need to bring a new perspective to the township that government is run by the people not the government running the people. Excessive regulations of our property cost us all more money when we want to invest in our property or just maintain our homes. Our current administration has been over burdening its citizens with regulations and in some cases changing zoning to hijack homeowner’s property rights.
