Candidate Question: What is an issue affecting the town that you care about most and want to make a priority? How will it guide your decision making?
I am a proud lifelong resident of Monroe. The most pressing issue in town is controlling taxes. The best way to control taxes is presenting and passing fiscally sound budgets and encouraging economic growth by retaining the businesses that we have in town and to add new businesses in the growing sectors of the economy.
As a current Town Council member, I also promote developing more age-restricted communities and supporting our emergency services team.
