Personal Views: My career experience encompasses management, leadership in government relations, contract negotiations, mediation, land use planning, personal development, and budgeting. I was a member of the council that worked with citizens to put together a strategic vision for the City of DuPont. Knowing that visions are only dreams unless they are put into action, I would like your vote to rejoin the council to make these visions a reality.
