Why are you seeking an elective mandate?

To help guide the city on a steady course in this time of uncertainty.

The most pressing issue facing our (council, district, etc.) is _______, and that is what I intend to do about it.

We need to do much more to deal with the Saint Gobain poisoning in our community. Bypassing the surveillance system shows they don’t care and we should work to stop them

What are the main differences between you and the other candidates for this position?

I have the necessary experience and a proven track record of working in the best interest of the residents of the city.

If you are a challenger, in what ways has the current board or administrator let down the community (or district or constituency)

Describe the other issues that define your campaign platform.

I support Zoning Amendment 3 to prevent future urgent care or hospital developments from harming our tax base. Focus on a fiscally responsible path forward given our current record high inflation situation.

What accomplishments in your past would you cite as proof that you can handle this job?

During my tenure as State Representative, we cut the budget by $11 million simply by making government more effective and efficient. As alderman of West Manchester, I was vice president of finance, chairman of land and buildings, and I built a free dog park with the help of my friends. Previously a Bedford City Councilman, served on the Conservation Commission, Historic District Commission, helped improve recycling and transfer station layouts, and worked to improve our budget to keep taxes down too low as possible.

The best advice ever shared with me was:

Be yourself, do your best and keep your word.

What else would you like voters to know about you and your duties?

I am an open and honest person who listens to and considers all views and information before making decisions that affect our community. You can contact me anytime to discuss issues and challenges facing our City.
