During my time with Lions Clubs International* I have been active in the Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Lions Club and the Harvard Lions Club as well as District and State level offices.
These experiences have developed my leadership ability and the structure of their organization is quite similar to the County Board. Giving me experience in the committee structure and getting projects identified researched and developing timelines and goals to accomplish the stated tasks. Since Lions is a volunteer organization you must develop the ability to listen to others and motivate groups to work together to accomplish moving projects forward in a collaborative effort.
During my campaign so far there has been some talk about whether to have full time members of the board instead of part time. I can assure you that since I am retired I would give the position the full time attention it and the residents of McHenry County deserve.
My vision for McHenry County is quite simple:
Continue to be fiscally responsible and reduce taxes while providing services to the residents of McHenry County.
Listen to the voices of the residents of McHenry County and make sure that their voice is articulated at the board meetings.
Advocate for the provision of infrastructure to allow and encourage growth that will provide the jobs and tax base to keep taxes low.
To insure that infrastructure includes fiber optic cable to extend broadband internet to the whole county.
Advocate and articulate a vision for economic growth that takes into account the jobs of the future.
Be vigilant in protecting the source of our water supply. Reviewing and updating the McHenry County Stormwater Management Program Plan and the Water Resources Action Plan.
* The Lions organization does not endorse any political candidate.
