Questions & Answers

What programs aren't paying for themselves? Would you keep, eliminate or change them? How and why?

I will explore the issue if needed when elected.

Is there any additional open space the park district needs to acquire? Please describe.

I don't think that there is an immediate need based on the current age of our community.

Are there any unmet recreational needs? If yes, what are they and how would you propose paying for them? Or, should they wait until the economy improves?

Yes, I would like to see an expansion of the bike path or running track. I would seek grant or state funding when available.

Would you support sharing/pooling resources (i.e. printing, vehicles) with other local governments (school districts, village, etc.)? If so, what areas would you consider combining or merging to save money or improve efficiency?

To my knowledge there are already intergovernmental agreements in place which I support.

If you are a newcomer, what prompted you to run for the park board? If you're an incumbent, list your accomplishments or key initiatives in which you played a leadership role.

Over the past 10 years my family has participated in many of the Park District programs from preschool, summer camp, athletics, summerfest and the facility itself. I support the Park District and would like to increase my involvement with hopes to help it grow and prosper.
