Running For: Westtown Township Supervisor
Positions Perviously Held:
- Public School Administrator of K-8 schools in Interboro School District for 11 years.
- Middle School Social Studies Teacher for 24 years.
- Business background as an independent contractor.
Residents know the are and cut through streets, not respecting the 25mph speed limits. Residents on high-flow or fly-through areas are looking for the installation of speed bumps and/or stop signs, especially since all our residential streets have children, elders and neighbors out walking and running.
Explain which issues motivated you to run:
The forced public sewering of Westtown Township. In 2006, the gravity feed for the township cost $60,000 per household. In 2011, the grinder feed for a secondary sewage system cost $40,000. I began my crusade to fight Westtown's plan to force public sewering in 2012, saving every home with an on-site sewer costing in excess of $50,000 per household. Attending 98 percent of Board of Supervisor meetings since May 2011, I was disheartened with how Westtown "did business."
Is there an area in which you think the current administration could have performed better, and how would you address that area?
Throughout nearly two years of private active citizen involvement on behalf of my fellow Westtown residents, I have maintained my firm resolve for the following:
- Westtown residents deserve fiscally responsible decisions
- Westtown residents deserve sound, research-based data on which to base decisions
- Westtown residents deserve to be involved in the research and decision making process
- Westtown's citizenry deserve to be kept well informed
