What are the top issues facing this district/municipality and how would you work to resolve it?

My main focus is to be a participant on the City Council that keeps the right balance of sustaining a growing community by maintaining a good relationship with our local businesses while representing the best interests of our city's residents. I do not see one key issue facing Brodhead, I do see a viable and thriving community in which I wish to participate in helping make decisions that sustain and promote growth of business opportunities which relate both to jobs and having a positive impact on our community as a whole.

What are other key issues facing the district/municipality, and how would you work to resolve them?

With my background in business and operations management I have a passion for seeking how best to improve processes and ensure good cost positions. One key goal for me is to ensure Brodhead's financial resources are used effectively and invested properly in the best interest of our citizens while supporting our local businesses.
