Why are you seeking office (in 100 words or less)? I am running for advisory board Posey Township. I feel that the diversity of my business background of 32 years, and the leadership roles that I have been a part of in my personal life, my church, charter member of the Elizabeth Lions Club, shows I am a person with the ability, insight and direction to help make conservation decisions for my community.
If elected, what will you do to serve the people of Posey Township (in 150 words or less)? I feel I have a lot to offer to my community in helping to serve an area I love living in, with 30+ years of management experience and business ownership in both Indiana and Kentucky. I’ve also been a part of several committees, in leadership rolls, within my church, The Lighthouse United Methodist, where I have been a member for 39 years. I currently work at Centerstone of Kentucky, working with those with mental health. I feel this has given me the background to listen and show compassion to those around me, but to make tough decisions when needed. I always put forth 110 percent to everything I do and look for ways to not only improve myself, but those around me with positive attitude. I want to help our town grow with new ideas, grow closer together and make a difference in the lives of those who live here.
