Why should you be elected?

I should be elected because I’m an experienced and conservative, current Bellefontaine City council member. I have a strong interest in keeping our community such a wonderful place to live and work, keeping our taxes low, and continuing to make improvements throughout the city. As a small business owner with an accounting degree, I have a lot of leadership and financial experience. As a Republican, I have a desire to support local law enforcement, keep spending low, and keep a balanced budget.

What are you top three priorities?

-Supporting law enforcement
-Keeping taxes low
-Continual improvement of streets and parks
