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.

Candidate did not respond.

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?

There are a few projects I would be interested in looking at. The Rec-Plex Roof is leaking, improvements to the Wave Pool, bathroom facilites at heavily used parks and remaining playgrounds being updated within our district.

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?

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 have been considering a run for Park Board for years. I have been wanted to be more involved in my community. I believe that park district is the core of a community and I look forward for the opportunity to serve on the board.
