"I come from a background of being self-employed and knowing that if you don't work, you don't eat. Most of my life I have been active in the community and church. I want to continue to work for you. With my experience, I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate the complicated governmental agencies, and get things done."

I'm proud of the fact that I have reduced the real estate taxes my 1st year as your St. Clair Township Supervisor and kept them at that rate for the next 3 years. Unlike some folks that want to continue to raise your taxes every year, I want your to keep more of your money in your pocket. I will look very strongly at a further reduction in taxes when elected for another 4 year term.
