Questions & Answers

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

Candidate did not respond.

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

I do not think the park district needs more property at this time.

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?

Soccer fields when the economy improves

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?

I would support any type of pooling between park districts, schools, or golf courses as long as it is a benefit to everyone involved and as long as it did not have a negative impact on the budget of those involved.

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.

I'm running again because I enjoyed being a commissioner in the past and felt I made a difference. In the past I helped with the installation of a new driving range for Old Orchard Country Club. This is now useful for practice and lessons and is great for the kids.
