Born, raised and lived in Indiana nearly all my life. I worked in the Food Industry for 29 years ending with six years as President and Chief Executive, then 15 years teaching and developing programs in Higher Education with the last seven years as Chaired Professor of Entrepreneurship. Retired in 2015. Now actively working to find a way to make local government more responsible to voters I am running for Township Board. I do this to set an example for people my age and in the hope younger generations will gain faith in government before they become disillusioned or worse yet, disenfranchised.
“I respect the 2nd Amendment, but believe common-sense solutions will help decrease the escalating epidemic of gun violence that kills too many of our children and loved ones every day. Whether gun violence happens in urban Chicago or rural Indiana we must act now on new and stronger gun laws and policies to protect our children. I believe all children and families can be safer from gun violence.”
“I support bipartisan Local Government. In a Single-Party Government, no matter how hard elected officials or staff try, partisan survival can override good governance as well as civic and fiduciary responsibilities. When people say, "Like it or not, you must run as a Republican (or Democrat) to serve here" the best talent is less likely to be on the ballot. Bigger talent pools are needed by all.”
“Township Government in Indiana is the most local of all governments because it is the closest to the people. People deserve transparent Township Government that not only spends their tax dollars wisely, but shares its actions in an open fashion on an easily available platform. The current Township Office Board for which I am running can do much better. We owe it to the residents of the Township.”
