Why are you running for this office, whether for re-election or election for the first time? Is there a particular issue that motivates you?
I believe that I possess the traits that are needed to be successful in life and in politics. These are being honest, moral and compassionate in making decisions.
If you are an incumbent, describe your main contributions. Tell us of any important initiatives you've led. If you are a challenger, what would you bring to the board and what would your priority be?
Being a lawyer I am use to negotiating deals and getting the best results. My priority is to eliminate wasteful spending and decrease spending in general.
Describe your position regarding the balance between county spending and revenues as it exists today, then describe the chief threats you see looming and how the county should deal with them.
People are tired of having the highest taxes in the nation and the Lake County Board must do whatever is possible to reduce taxes.
How do you rate the county government on transparency and the public's access to records? If it's adequate, explain why. If you think improvements are needed, delineate them.
I believe the Lake County Government is not transparent enough. There should be more emails, newsletters, and social media briefings on what is transpiring in Lake County.
What, if anything, should be done to improve automation and customer service in county offices? What steps should be taken to make that happen?
Phone calls and emails should be answered promptly. When someone calls a phone it should be answered and not go directly to voicemail.
