I have been service driven since I moved here in 2010. I have served on the Village Council for 4 years. I am a charter member of Bloom Carroll Kiwanis and have served as their President since our charter. I have served on the Lithopolis Honeyfest Association for the last 6 years and have been the President for the last 2 years.
I will focus on Lithopolis and work to bring the Village back together. I would like to Control development and growth and plan for the future. I would like to make the neighborhoods more accessible to each other and work to build a new school building. I would like to work on a grant to build a park and playground with skating and possibly a dog park.
I would encourage everyone to research and be sure you know exactly who you are voting for and what they stand for. I welcome any and all questions.
