Questions & Answers

The college last year engaged in a lengthy legal battle with the village of Glen Ellyn over local building codes and jurisdictional matters. As a board member, what would you do to avoid such lengthy conflicts in the future.

I will work to make every effort to avoid further conflicts with our communities giving a mutual respect to both of our interests.

What steps should COD take to improve its relationship with the faculty?

I will work to give the faculty all of the opportunities they need to provide the best education to our students. I have many faculty associations and I value their ideas.

In tough economic times, many students (and working professionals) turn to a community college for its educational value. How do you ensure that a person's financial sacrifice results in an educational benefit?

As a graduate of the College of Dupage I am always working with the college to provide the most up to date educational opportunities at the least cost.

Is a tax rate increase needed and, if so, how do you justify it?

I have worked as a board member at COD to the best interest of the taxpayers of our district. A tax increase will not be needed.

Community colleges provide many services to a diverse population. Is there a service your college should be providing that it is not, or reaching a segment of the population that it is not?

I am not aware of anything in the immediate future but the college is constantly looking at new educational opportunities. I personally would like to see a certification class in servicing energy saving items like solar panels and wind turbines.
