Questions & Answers

What makes you the best candidate for the job?

With my knowledge of firefighting and Company Officer leadership I would be an assest to the District.

Why are you running for this office, whether for re-election or election the first time? Is there a particular issue that motivates you, and if so, what is it?

Wanting to get involved with the Fire Department and to share my experience and knowledge with them.

Talking with your friends and neighbors, what seems to be their biggest fire safety concern? Explain the concern as you see it, and discuss how you think it should be addressed.

Most of my neighbors ars concerned about response times to a fire call. The District is building another station that should alleviate some of their worries.

In these tight economic times, budgets have to be prioritized. Where, if anywhere, could the current budget be trimmed, and conversely, are there areas the budget does not give enough money to?

At present I do not know enough about the budget to respond to your question.

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 do not support sharing or pooling as only fire vehicles can do their job.
