Candidate for Council
During my six years on the Council, I have promoted ‘Preserve Rockville’s character while embracing Rockville’s future.’ If re-elected, I will continue to honor Rockville’s traditions while providing innovative solutions to neighborhood concerns.
During the next term, complex issues will be decided: economic development balanced with a strong commitment to minimize school over-crowding and traffic congestion; the future of the Red Gate property; pedestrian/bicyclist safety on shared roadways; King Farm Farmstead revitalization; sustainable budgets; investments in Town Center; and housing programs for young adults, veterans and persons with disabilities.
I possess the skills and experience to consider thoughtfully these critical concerns. With three decades of public policy budgeting and program analysis in leadership positions, I use the tools for data driven decision- making. I engage residents and staff, ask questions, and am committed to providing outstanding public services in a fiscally prudent manner.
I am proud of the policy initiatives and leadership of my two terms that include: staged development to prevent school overcrowding while opposing an increase of the enrollment cap to 150%; property tax credits; strengthening Rockville’s emergency preparedness and public safety; a multi-year program to combat opioid addiction; increased early child care/education and senior programs; housing and employment for individuals with disabilities; neighbors helping neighbors through the Villages movement, and increased good governance and transparency.
Please vote for me and my fellow Rockville Forward candidates. We pledge to work effectively, collaboratively and transparently so that Rockville continues to be a great place to live, work and play.
