I have 29 years of diverse political experience from Mayor, Village Manager to Commissioner. I provide a diversity of culture but also a diversity of opinion. I believe that being a Licensed Social Worker gives me a unique perspective when our constituents reach out to me. There’s more work to do and there are more people that need my assistance.
